Michael Gardner is currently on our CVT team for this 2016-2017 season, with this being his 2nd year on the Zips Baja team. Additionally, he is the driver for all of suspension / traction events, and for the second half of the endurance races. Michael has done two rotations at LUK USA. At LUK, he was able to see the manufacturing side of engineering in the bonding department where the friction paper is applied to the piston of the torque converter. He also was able to spend a rotation setting up a new line for production for LUK, where he was able to help form the processes necessary to make a product come together.
