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…

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, H2R, Racing, Rentals, SRF
Wow! It's been a crazy couple of months... lots of new and exciting things happening in and around the shop! So here's a quick update: MotoGP Camping We're VERY excited to be hosting 50-100 of our fellow enthusiasts for Moto GP camping April 19-21! With 17 acres there should be plenty of room for everybody to spread out and keep off each others toes. We hope the weather will cooperate, and that we'll get enough rain before then to get this burn ban lifted so we can have a good old fashioned, Texas-sized bonfire! But fear not, for those attending, we'll have some grills available for you to cook on and hopefully a "burn ban approved" fire pit/area so we can gather 'round, roast marshmellows and listen to some FANTASTIC…

Onboard at Harris Hill from a SRF!

Onboard at Harris Hill from a SRF!

I've been trying to shoot video like crazy so I have some fun and cool stuff to post on YouTube, and I got a couple laps onboard one of the SRFs at Harris Hill! The camera angle is pretty cool to watch, you can see me sawing on the wheel and having a good time (as you can see from the screenshot here). If you want to kill some time check out the YouTube channel, or go straight to the video! Hint: There's a similar one from COTA with a customer driving!
