RSR Motorsports returns to the Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge in 2010, and the teamâ€™s fourth season in the series is poised to be its best ever. RSR is already turning heads with a lethal combination of fast Mini Cooper S entries, accomplished drivers and a skilled crew.
Based in Mesa, Arizona, RSR Motorsports has been a solid presence in the ST class of Continental Tire Challenge since the teamâ€™s entry into the series in 2007.
RSR made their Grand-Am debut in 2007, and after their rookie season they were ready for a breakout performance in 2008.
The ST class featured three RSR Minis, and they proved to be mighty: RSR broke the single-lap track record at Lime Rock Park, Mosport International Raceway, Mid-Ohio and Miller Motorsports Park. An RSR Mini sat on the ST pole at both Mid-Ohio and Miller, as well.
Always striving for more, RSR Motorsports started the 2010 season by setting the fastest race lap at Daytona International Speedway. Roundel magazine took note, saying that the Minis â€œdefied the laws of physics.â€ Ask anyone with RSR Motorsports, though, and theyâ€™ll tell you their success is due to teamwork, dedication, and the never-ending desire to go faster.
