Passenger: Sinthia Carrol


Sinthia discovered sidecars at the 2015 Toronto Supershow. She watched some races and went out for a a few demo laps. When Mike's passenger from last year formed a team with his best friend on sidecar 13, Mike asked her if she would like to be his passenger. Sinthia said yes, thanked her husband Greg who left Mountain High Racing in need of a passenger, and signed up for the Sidecar Racers Association track school. This is Sinthia's first time participating in any form of motorsports… and she LOVES IT!
