Don't let Negri's quiet, humble manner deceive you-he's one of the fastest drivers out there. Negri has scored a podium finish in every season of Rolex Series competition going back to his first full effort in 2004. With a pedigree that includes rubbing elbows, and sometimes wheels, with guys like Barrichello, Coulthard, and de Ferran, Negri has proven quick in anything he's ever driven.
Negri put in a signature drive to close out the 2006 season, battling through the darkness to hold a bevy of chasers at bay and take his first Rolex Series victory at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah. And as many in the paddock will attest, it isn't just Negri's lightning quick lap times that are impressive-he's also a highly sought-after driver coach, and clearly knows how to get the most out of a race car while making sure there's something in reserve for the finish.
A father of two, Brazilian-born Negri has made his home in Miami.
After taking pole position for the 2008 Rolex 24 At Daytona, Negri scored another decisive win driving with Patterson at NJMP to victory. Negri will return to partner with John Pew in the No. 60 LiveOn.Com Ford-Riley.
