Want to drive for RSm?  Our seats are usually sold out for the year as we plan our races around available drivers. But sometimes we need that one fast guy to finish off the team for a certain event. We do require all drivers to own and wear a head and neck device, and we require at least MR2 or Porsche 911 wheel to wheel racing experience due to the handling complexity of racing the RSm MR2. Hint… the car wants to kill you whenever you think you have a handle on it and relax. Mid-engine racers will know what we are talking about. If you meet the above criteria, email your racing resume to
