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 and Wild Bubba’s Wild Game Grill! Without these folks we wouldn’t be listening to sweet tunes, saving our head with a crazy light and awesomely affordable carbon fiber helmet, or staving off hunger with a delicious wild game burger and fries (or chili if you’re WT). Keep your eyes peeled for some updates soon from Chris Taylor Racing Services and Black Armor Helmets. We’re talking racing radio setups and package deals! Plus, James at Black Armor is a fellow racer, and you know how important it is to help support fellow LOCAL racers and enthusiasts! Thanks to Black Armor we now have loaner helmets available. If you’re looking at getting into racing, in addition to racecar rentals we also have a limited supply of gear to loan out. Suits, shoes, and now helmets! Sizing is the important factor here, but contact us with any questions!
We’re working on a race-specific schedule for 2014. If you’re interested in a racecar rental for any SCCA, NASA or track events, let us know! We have 2 SRF’s available, 2 SRX7’s/STL cars, and we’re working on an enduro/STU car that should be finished up by Spring! To see what we’ve got planned so far, head over to the Events Page, and shoot us a message if your event isn’t on it!
