Armin Kremer's navigator Sam Osman: 20 years young - and as solid as the Rocky Mountains

Big surprise at the Baja 500: A German rookie named Armin Kremer brought the second AGM Buggy home eleventh in class at his first ever desert race. The former Asia Pacific, European and German rally champion had delivered a great performance at his first attempt in the SCORE International series.

One man at All German Motorsports was particularly happy with this result: his navigator Sam Osman. Sam had taken on the responsibility to show the German the way through the Mexican desert. Sam speaks American. Armin Kremer speaks German and a kind of language that we European rally drivers think is English. Still, communication was perfect on board, even at the highest race speed. That's promising for the future.

Deshalb heißen Beifahrer auch Copiloten ...

That's the reason why navigators are sometimes called co pilots ...

At just 20 years of age, Sam Osman is a seasoned navigator. The bachelor from California joined AGM in 2004. Martin Christensen asked him to jump into his navigator's seat in 2005 and 2006 because Martin believes that you've got to first get experience of what it means to race in order to work perfectly in a racing team. Sam showed huge talent right from the start. He has what it takes to be a top navigator: the will to reach perfection in whatever he does. The stamina and the skill to get there. The calmness not to lose oversight even in tumultuous situations. To be honest, Sam is so incredibly relaxed that he l eft Armin a few times gasping in disbelief, how he seemed to be untouched in really stressy situations. Moreover, Sam is an ace with the GPS and with pace notes - and he is a great team player.

For the twisty bits we write detailed pace notes like in the World Rally Championship

Sam contributes to the success of AGM not only in the cockpit. In the race work shop he is a sought after man whenever we need a top fabricator. Sam's main profession is in the aircraft industry, where light-weight and high strength are as essential as in racing.
