Circuit of the Americas MotoGP Camping!

Circuit of the Americas MotoGP Camping!

COTA
We're a month away from the RedBull Circuit of the Americas MotoGP 2014 event, and we've still got plenty of room for camping and parking! Last year we had a blast with all the folks that came out, and look forward to some return customers and some new folks! We made some slight adjustments to the pricing from last year, now it's $25/night per person. We've also got group rates available, so if you've got a whole mess of friends coming out, shoot us a message for pricing! In addition to breakfast, coffee, 2 awesome outdoor showers and facilities, we're offering airport and beer store shuttles during the event this year! We ask that you give us a heads up so we can schedule picking you up. No hidden fees…

MVP Track Time at COTA (Again!)

MVP Track Time at COTA (Again!)

COTA, Racing, Rentals, SRF, SRX7
This past weekend we had the opportunity to provide racecar rental services to another satisfied Chris Taylor Racing Customer for MVP Track Time at Circuit of the Americas! This really is an astounding track, and it's a real treat to get on the track whenever possible. It seems like we're getting fewer and fewer opportunities so I'm personally grateful when events pop up for regular folks, and even more grateful when folks rent an SRF, Miata, or RX7 from me! Among the many reasons is the viewing opportunities this track provides, and that's part of what this little article is about. I'll give ya'll a brief history lesson! The 2 SRFs have quite a few frequent flier miles, and I don't mean that in an off-course excursion sort of way!…

SRF Rentals!

SRF Rentals!

COTA, H2R, Racing, Rentals, SRF
Looking for an SRF Rental for events at COTA, Harris Hill Road, SCCA or NASA? We've got 2 SRF's ready to go! While we're pretty new to the SRF game, we're more than competitive on pricing for SRF Rentals, including travel, so give us a shout! Whether it's a track day, driver's school, instruction, race weekend or anything you can imagine, we would love to rent you an SRF! Or an SRX7/STL car for that matter! The SRF rentals use Goodyear race tires which are plentiful from the top half of the field with just a handful of heat cycles. At around 1500 pounds with 115-120HP they'll stomp on a Miata and give even turbo Porsche's a hard time on a twisty enough track. Real racecar feel with production car…

Racecar Rentals for 2014!

Racecar Rentals for 2014!

COTA, H2R, Racing, Rentals, SRF, SRX7
The 2014 season has already kicked off with The Abominable put on by Houston Region, SCCA at MSR-Houston. We were there with 2 Spec Racer Fords and an SRX7 and had a blast. Our new customer David Hancock won both the Qualifying Race and the Regional Race on Saturday in dominating fashion with a Chris Taylor Racing Services racecar rental! After the test day on Friday, David dropped another 10 seconds from his laptime on Saturday, and this was without the benefit of data! Just old fashioned driver coaching, observation, and competitiveness! We look forward to finishing up his SpecRX7 build and many, many more events in the future! While there we ran the 2 SRFs with support from Shakey Graves (my buddy and awesome native-Austinite musician), Black Armor Helmets…

COTA Camping & Parking for MotoGP/X-Games!

COTA Camping & Parking for MotoGP/X-Games!

COTA
Howdy ya'll, we're gearing up for MotoGP, Red Fest and the X-Games in 2014! We'll have our space available to our friends (new & old) for these two events, as well as any others! We've changed the Circuit of the Americas camping price structure a little bit, but it will have zero effect on most folks... those that it will effect are encouraged to email me and arrange a group rate! For those just here, we used to charge $50/night for a carload of campers. Now it's $25/night per person. Sucks for the big groups (which were very few), a better deal for those that come in solo, and no effect to most of our campers which are pairs or couples! Again, CONTACT US for group rates and discounts for…

USGP Parking, Camping, LIVE MUSIC!

USGP Parking, Camping, LIVE MUSIC!

COTA, Racing
If you're still looking for USGP Parking and haven't already RSVP'd with us, perhaps some AWESOME and LOCAL live music will help seal the deal? At 8PM on Saturday, we'll have awesome local band Holy Ka-Kow playing at the shop for our campers and the parkers that are having too much fun to leave! It should be a really fun time, a little louder and rowdier than Matt A. Foster's acoustic set at MotoGP, but it'll be up by the shop where there's power and more light! Because of all the rain we've had lately, the grass has grown like crazy! The good news is, Monday and Tuesday of this week, everything in back is freshly mown! The other fantastic news is that there shouldn't be any burn ban, so…

Driver Instruction & Racecar Rental at H2R!

Driver Instruction & Racecar Rental at H2R!

COTA, H2R, Racing, Rentals
Things just keep blowing and going here at Chris Taylor Racing Services! This weekend we're headed down to Harris Hill Raceway to do some driver instruction in one of our SpecRX7's with a fantastic new customer. It's great to see somebody chomping at the bit so hard they want as much seat time as they can get while we build his car! He'll be competing in 2014 in a brand-new Chris Taylor Racing Services/Taylor Rotorsports built Spec7, so it should be an exciting season as we do trackside prep and instruction with him. Stay tuned for pictures and updates on the build, and on the coming season! Chris is pretty excited about some driver instruction gigs, so if you've got any interest in learning race craft or bettering your laptimes,…

COTA F1 USGP Camping & Parking!

COTA
Whew! We've been busier than the old one-eyed cat watching two mouse holes! But, reservations keep pouring in for USGP Camping and Parking for the upcoming Formula 1 race at COTA! Thanks to everybody that's RSVP'd so far, lots of repeat customers that we can't wait to see and some new faces we hope come back many more times in the future! To answer a couple questions that have kept coming up, it's now been a year and we still haven't had any issues walking to the track, so don't worry about any of their publicized statements to the contrary. If they actually do enforce it we'll work out a shuttle, but otherwise it's less of a hike than from their furthest on-site lots, and a heck of a lot…
