Krohn, 52 (pictured), is a keen car racer and takes part in about 25 competitions per year though his Krohn Racing team. Last week he teamed up on home turf with Swede Nic Jonsson to race in the American Le Mans Series Lone Star Grand Prix of Houston, part of a weekend of racing around Reliant Park.

The race proved challenging for the No 61 Krohn-Risi Ferrari team, with Krohn and Jonsson finishing 23rd overall and 10th in class after a couple of small incidents, including nearly a one-hour pit-stop for a radiator change.
