Chin Motorsports Rentals (and other awesome deals)!

Miata, Racing, Rentals, SRF, SRX7
Most of ya'll know I'm a big proponent of helping others out, especially local businesses... well, Chin Motorsports may not be local, but they've got a local putting on their events in Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana! Close enough! So, I'm proud to announce a deal from me to you, fellow racer/track enthusiast!

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…

24 Hours of LeMons @ ECR!

Racing, Rentals
Anybody looking for hauling and crew/support for the 24 Hours of LeMons at Eagles Canyon raceway that would like to join a 944 team, we have room in the trailer! Cost is $500 to haul it up and $100 per day for support. Somewhat negotiable, it's more important for us to fill the trailer than eek out every extra dollar! Shoot us an email with any questions! We'll have RX7 and Miata spares along with us, as well as quick dump 5 gallon fuel jugs, tools, and various equipment. The 20x30 canopy will be setup, and camping in the trailer is available for interested parties!

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…

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!

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…
