Dedicated motorsports departments and client racing programs let riders enjoy life as a racer.
As automotive and motorsport enthusiasts, we all dream of the day when we can get behind the wheel of a factory race car and push it to the limits of a legendary circuit. While the reality of being a professional racing driver is a challenging task in itself, automotive brands are making the goal of owning a factory race car more achievable by establishing a dedicated motorsport division. These Client Factory Race programs allow individuals to purchase, service, and race cars that compete in the professional settings of world-renowned brands.
Manufacturers participating in these programs include Ferrari, McLaren, Mercedes-AMG, Lamborghini, Porsche, BMW, Toyota and Mazda. Starting as a blank canvas, each chassis is matched with uniform performance and technical features that make the playing field equal to any amount of experience for aspiring drivers. In order of performance and technical settings, all that needs to be done for the owner and / or the team is to design a lever that embodies the personality of the participants.
Through organized race series and events that bring like-minded owners together, each program presents a safe and educational environment that celebrates the true spirit of the competition. The stress of sourcing and repairing a race car after a painful track day is alleviated with quick-response service departments that help you maximize your time on the track during the season. In addition to providing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, customer racing also opens the door to start a professional career in the growing world of automotive motorsport. Discover the available factory race vehicles and customer race programs by contacting the automotive manufacturer of your choice.
