I started out creating results pages for all of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. I've since expanded to becoming a member of WikiProject Formula One and eventually created my own project, WikiProject Sports Car Racing. I work on almost any sort of motorsports or automotive articles, mostly relating to results or specific vehicles. I also dabble in a few other articles that catch my interest, usually if it's brought to my attention through the Wikipedia chat rooms.

As for the name, it relates to the star known as Wolf 359.
