Now head of a racing school, and his company, Guidare Pilotare, is one of the top racing and driving schools in the World for both cars and bikes, but Siegfried has also moved into safe driving techniques for HGV and long-distance transport. Stohr actually qualified as a doctor of psychology before becoming a racing driver and then had a rapid rise, winning Formula Italia and Italian Formula 3 titles in successive years. However Formula 1 didn't go that well and Stohr quit racing immediately afterwards to set up his school, which has had a number of top drivers work as instructors for him over the years.
