This is another positive review of TopSpeed Motorsports…. That’s the cliff notes, you can stop here if you want.
I’m definitely not new to the community and this isn’t the first time I have written a review of TopSpeed as I have trusted them with my car for 2 years and used them on a limited basis on other cars I owned before the GTR. But here is a little bit more of my story and the direction I am going:
I was never into the whole “go to car events” kinda guy. I wasn’t one to open the hood of my car and stand next to it and wait for people to pat me on the back. I modded my cars for the pure enjoyment of driving them on the street and never quite understood the other side of the equation. This year I went to Ocala with TSM and most recently attended Tx2k with TSM. I kinda get it now why these events draw so much attention, and I even went as far as finishing my engine bay so it looked a bit prettier for Tx2k… Its kinda cool to show off your creation and have others excited about what you have done to your car. Standing in the shadows watching people take pictures of your car, smiling, etc… Its just a really cool feeling. And then the other side of things when you get to show what the car is capable in a safe environment with 1000s of people watching?!?! What a rush.
If you are a TSM customer you probably know they offer trackside support for their vehicles, mount your wheels, check on the car, diagnose and repair if needed, tweak your tune after each run to ensure your car is running at its top level after each pass…. The list goes on and on what they will do for you trackside. I watched them change out a transmission trackside in 1.5 hours (impressive!!!).
But what makes TopSpeed kinda a big deal in my mind is their guys and girls… these people running around the pits checking on each customer, making sure everyone is having a good time, handing you a water, etc etc etc…. They do all this work are happy about it (at least on the outside, lol) and are genuinely invested in making sure you have a great experience at the track. The best way I can describe the experience is if you go to an NBA game and sit courtside… Its going to be awefully hard to go to another game and have as much enjoyment not sitting courtside… TSM provides this courtside experience at car events.
I probably get on Cicio’s nerves… “Have you thought of X”, “What you done Y”… he told me “John, just put a little trust in me, I got you covered” He hasn’t let me down in 2 years.
At this point I am converted and my eyes are open to why these things are so fun, I am looking at my calendar and excited to do more in the future. If I could give one piece of advice if you are sitting on the fence to going to some of these events, give it a shot, and if you need some help making it happen give TopSpeed a call and see if they will have your back.
Hats off to the guys of TopSpeed Motorsports.
I borrowed some pictures of me and my car from various sources...
