Chris Taylor ’03: Follow Your Passion … At 140MPH

When Chris Taylor ‘03 was a senior at St. Andrew’s, he already knew the path he wanted to take when he graduated. Chris had a passion for fast cars and racing and he wanted to jump right into the racing industry. For his senior project, Chris built a racecar from scratch. The venture turned out to be more challenging than he anticipated, but it only fueled his motivation to continue working on cars.
Above is a photo of Chris at the F1 track with one of his racecars.

Chris began racing cars when he was eight years old. He began by racing quarter midgets and competed in the national championships in Colorado and Canada. As Chris grew bigger, so did the cars. His knowledge of all aspects of the racing industry increased, as well.

Upon graduation, Chris and his dad, Walt, opened Taylor Rotorsports in 2003. A decade later, Chris is the owner of Chris Taylor Racing Services. Chris’ company is dedicated to providing an excellent racing experience for the “pro-sumers” with a passion for racing. Chris provides garage services and race cars for “arrive-and-drive” racers. His facility is located near the Circuit of the Americas F1 Track and he supplies cars for other races that are scheduled for the F1 track and at other racetracks around the state. He provides cars for the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA), National Auto Sport Association (NASA), and Pro Series races.
Chris’ racing connections and reputation have grown over the last decade. He attributes much of his knowledge of the sportscar marketing business to his relationship with Tavo Hellmund, who was instrumental in bringing F1 to Austin. Because Chris’ facility is located next door to the F1 track, he is able to provide parking and camping locations for Circuit of the Americas events and for racing enthusiasts coming to Austin for other track events. Learn more here about his plans for this week’s upcoming races.

Chris is also very active at Harris Hill Raceway (H2R), a track located near San Marcos. When Chris first introduced himself to the track owners, he discovered that the track was owned by a St. Andrew’s dad, Bo Rivers, father of Carley Rivers ‘05. The Harris Hill Road Track is essentially a club for people interested in driving their own cars in a controlled racetrack environment. Drivers can take lessons and book lap time to experience driving at a new level.

If you are yearning for that speedier-than-highway driving experience, take a look at the video below from Chris’ racing channel.


Check in with Chris if you, too, want to experience speeding down a track with an alum who really knows the sport.

The quote, which Chris selected as a senior to include in the yearbook, only confirms the path he has taken: “There are only three true sports: mountain climbing, bullfighting, and motor racing. The rest are all games.”

- Ernest Hemingway

  • · Take your time, Shanna. We’ll be here when the words come. This issue you’ve written about here, that’s exactly why I don’t schedule posts on my blog. I want to do it because I love it, not force myself when I just don’t feel like it. Words don’t come to me easily at all, so I have to take my time.

  • Joyeux noël Camilla ! Your amaryllis are gorgeous and your kitchen looked like mine, this is Christmas :-) A big bravo for your vegetarism. For the past five years, I have been eating meet on a rarely basis, and I am much more happier.

  • Anyone else wondering if the wife cheated before 10:00 or after 2:00 before? Or are we to believe that she’s only tempted to do so in that particular four-hour window when she conveniently agreed to be followed?

  • Non è facile pubblicizzare certi prodotti senza scadere nel volgare, ma in questo caso direi che ci sono riusciti appieno… con molta creatività ed ironia!Anche le allusioni sessuali per altri prodotti (es. Nikon) sono sempre sobrie e mai di cattivo gusto.Ottimo post, come sempre ;)

  • Usually I don’t read article on blogs, however I would like to say that this write-up very forced me to take a look at and do so! Your writing style has been amazed me. Thank you, quite nice article.

  • Adrienn, I’d actually challenge you on that. I see a lot of people trying to create quality at the expense of creating something that scales. For many business owners, quantity is exactly what is eluding them.

  • I don't see the big problem. As long as we can still do the things we've always done so what if they let us watch shows on their site? We might even get more subscribers from people visiting YT to watch TV.

  • una buona dose di provocazione è presente. Ma se ti metti a leggere le osservazioni dell'economista trovi davvero argomenti "seri". Insomma magari arrivare a sostenere che la lavatrice sia più rivoluzionaria di Internet è grosso… ma dire che gli elettrodomestici hanno portato ad una rivoluzione del ruolo della donna è sicuramente azzeccatissimo

  • In every culture from the beginning of written history when the homosexual perverts lost their shame that caused them to hide in the closet and became bold and shook their fists at God ,that culture,nation,empire was soon destroyed. Obama has been handpicked by God to president over the destruction of America, Sodom land and no little god with a voting card is going to stop what is most deservedly coming.
