Our stable of MiniCup racecars are a nationally recognized class, that offer a fully caged, fully suspended NASCAR style chassis, powered by an affordable Honda 400cc engine. GMS chose this entry level racer as our driver development platform, because of it’s safety, adjustability and simplicity. A great entry level class, and often an appropriate step up from Karts, because of the adjustable chassis. As basic as these cars are, a driver that fully understands how to properly tune a MiniCup, will have the ability to communicate effectively with professional crew chiefs anywhere.
Your time will include one of our trackside video / photo producers, who will capture all the action, providing you with media to aid in your training. You can optimize the value of our time together, by adding a SpeedReel or HeroReel. You’ll have the ability to immediately present yourself to potential sponsors.
