With Patrick Wilmot’s father racing a Shelby Mustang in HSR and his first trip to a track being before he was even one month old, one might say that Patrick has racing in his blood. In 2007 he began his racing career in the ProCup Karting league at Andretti Indoor Karting. Three years and three championships later he began racing cars. His debut was made in a Ford Mustang in SCCA’s American Sedan class, racking up four national wins and finishing in the top three in points from 2009 to 2012.
In 2012 Patrick began his professional instructing career with Skip Barber Racing School and Mercedes AMG, along with coaching privately. Since then, he has instructed for various manufacturers such as Porsche, Audi and Ferrari and continues to offer professional coaching and mentoring services to his clients in their racing endeavors in IMSA, SCCA, WRL, SRO and more.
In 2016 Patrick began Pro Racing in a Pirelli World Challenge Mini Cooper for The Precision Motorsports Group. He and his team brought home two top five and four top ten finishes over the course of the year.
In 2017 he moved over to the Global Mazda MX-5 Cup with GB Racing/Racing Analytics where he would earn the Mazda Move of the Year Award for passing three cars, in the rain, on the outside of turn one at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Since 2019, Patrick has raced in the annual SimCraft 24 Hour race with the Racing for Children’s karting team. Over the past four years the team has been able to raise more than $15,000 towards research for Children’s Hospital of Alabama.
Most recently, Patrick has four top ten finishes in IMSA, competing in the TCR class driving a Volkswagen GTI TCR and an Audi RS3 LMS TCR for AOA Racing. He is currently racing in the World Racing League in a BMW M2 CS R for Split Decision Racing.
