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…

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…

MotoGP Camping, Shop Updates & more!

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…
