I started in Mexico doing neutral support, that was in the early ’80s. Then I moved to the U.S. when I was 19. I started working for American teams and continued for ten years or so, working in the States and in Europe. Then, you know, I got married, had kids. After that I went away, and now I’m trying to get back into it. I thought I was becoming old, I thought I needed a change. I went and worked in offices, but I never set the world on fire. So now I’m back being a mechanic. I’m 49.—Fernando Tapia, Contract Mechanic
