    Formed officially in 1986 by the brother and sister team of Patty and Don Nimi, (the “P” and the “D” in PDM), they began their motor sport venture with local autoslalom competition on a regional level in Vancouver, B.C. Don had been competing with success since 1984, with several wins and overall championships in Regional events, and encouraged his sister to join in on the weekend fun of local solo competition. Later that same year, the brother sister duo also teamed with Mikel Ruegamer, who became the “M” in PDM, and future husband of Patty. The trio experienced great success in Regional and National Solo II competition…with a National Win for Don in his 1964 Austin Healey Sprite. Again, in 1987, Don placed 3rd in Canada in his class…with Mikel taking Rookie of the Year honors. The trio continued their Auto-X racing on a Regional and National level, with great success, Autoxing the CRX with more National wins in 1989 for Mikel, combined with Patty taking a 2nd overall in the woman’s class, a 1st in 1990 for Mikel and a 4th overall in the open class for Patty, and in 1991 with Don placing 1st in his Nissan 240SX, and Mikel placing 2nd in his C/SP Honda CRX.
