Are there any teams/companies dedicated to renting out seats?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if this is a possibility so I have easy flexibility in planning out a possible endurance racing schedule next year to visit some bucket list tracks.

There are multiple teams that are dedicated to renting out seats. Do you have a racing resume by chance?

Technically, no racing resume. Just an advanced HPDE driver (Group 3 by NASA Standards). I'm sure this would probably keep teams from renting out to me since I have no formal W2W experience, but if it helps, I'm consistent, level headed, and not a jerk (and I'd love to participate in a team effort).

I will keep an eye out for you. There are definitely teams that will rent to you, hopefully the right person sees this thread and can help you out.

@RyanGreener  Know of several folks who do that.  Have minimal experience with one such team in northern indiana.  High quality build and we finished the first race weekend having only missed the last few hours on saturday for a failing wheel bearing replacement.  DM me if you want contact info.

Thanks (both of you) for the info! I guess I'll try to see what happens for next year. I'll keep you in mind!

Any particular region?  There are lots of teams that post seats available throughout the season on here.  If you need to remain flexible, you can simply post up a want ad before the event (probably suggest a couple months prior).  Keep in mind that build/support levels can vary pretty significantly so don't be afraid to ask for pictures, driver reviews, etc from the team as well.

I live in the Northeast section but I would be trying to fly out to other sections for some bucket list tracks like Road Atlanta, Road America, Indy Speedway, Daytona, Laguna Seca, etc.
