    Default Track car rentals?

    Hey Guys,

    Heading out to Big Willow on the 11th for a track day however it seems my car wont be ready in time. Who do you guys typically use for race rentals and what kind of pricing can I expect? I'd like to stay clear of the whole enterprise mustang thing as I rather not have the legal ramifications on my mind.

    thanks

    ^^^ I can vouch for Andrew (Savington). I did not rent his car, but he did provide me trackside support when I rented someone else's Spec Miata for a race weekend at Buttonwillow. I am familiar with his rental car, even though I have never driven it. Let me just say that he is at least as competitive in that car as I am in my S2K, which has about 70 more whp (but also weighs more).

    Do you personally provide trackside support? I'd pay that just to order you around . . .

    Ha, ha, ha, ha, Richard. That is funny. My best laugh of the morning.

    This establishment reserves the right to refuse service to anyone. Oh yeah, shoes and shirt required, and in your case underwear, too.

    Thanks Guys! I connected with Savington, and we are all set to go. May not be a bad idea to keep a running thread of who rents what, and ballpark rates... ;-0

    I think it's a great idea. Manly, could we do this and make it a sticky?

    To keep the thread going, here is what I rented:

    Car: Thunder Roadster
    Company: W Motorsports
    Price: $300 for closer tracks (Willow Springs, ACS)
    Full information: W Motorsports - Thunder Roadster rentals


    Does anyone know of any sources for renting an affordable S2000 (preferably a stockish AP2)?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm looking for a place where I can rent a Corvette or something with similar power and RWD. It doesn't have to be a racecar like that T1 Corvette option I previously saw in this thread.

    I am a very experienced driver and if anyone themselves could rent me one for the Buttonwillow 28/29th of July event, we can go through my racing history to help give you an idea beforehand.

    You can contact me at qpracer@hotmail.com if this is the case, otherwise any response to this would be greatly appreciated!

    Chris
