Potential owner/drivers

Have you always dreamt of being a race driver?  Do you emulate the heros of your childhood or current stars whilst hoofing your powerful modern car along public roads with its gadgets and gizmos, maybe occasionally enjoying track days?  You may even already be racing…Classic car racing is THE way to get into the world of motorsport and experience the thrill of racing in front of hundreds of thousands of people.  It doesn’t matter how old you are – you can do it.   You can make your childhood dreams come true.Be reunited with driving how it used to be in the old days – when cars were cars, and it was all about the driver, not the computer!  Compete bumper to bonnet with the greats of endurance racing – the scream of a GT40, the slightly throatier roar of a Ferrari as they re-create their battle for supremacy at Le Mans in the 1960s.Want to drive in front of 150,000 people at Le Mans?   We would love to help you achieve this dream…Chris Marsh Racing can tailor a package to ensure that you find the right car & the right pathway for you to achieve this:BEFORE THE RACES

Potential Owner: Syndicate Member

Maybe you love the idea of being involved in an exciting sport, but you don’t want to drive and you don’t want all the additional costs of racing?   From time to time, Chris Marsh Racing offers a unique opportunity to start your involvement in the sport through syndicating certain of its cars.

Syndication is based on the model used in the horseracing world, which allows owners to split cost and share the dream.  It offers an accessible entry point to the sport of Classic Car racing – offering the fun and excitement of classic car racing at prestigious locations, but at minimal risk & cost.

The noise, the buzz, the adrenalin are fantastic.   The difference between being a spectator and being involved as an owner is massive.   Imagine being able to bring your friends, family or colleagues along to watch YOUR car racing – to go and visit her in the pits.

LM1800

Currently Chris Marsh Racing has the LM1800 is offered on a shared ownership basis through a syndicate.

  • Each Syndicate member would receive a certain percentage of shares in the car in exchange for the initial payment, which would enable the Syndicate to purchase the car and restore it/make it “Race Ready”.
    • Chris Marsh Racing would be the syndicate manager and would then be responsible for financing, management & risk management of the car’s racing.
    • Syndicate members would have limited on-going costs (for example, limited insurance only).
    • The syndicate would be ongoing but Syndicate members would be free to sell their share at any time subject to the Terms and Conditions
  • Each member would be kept up to date with restoration progress, and invited to visit the car. At the races, all Syndicate members will be treated as full owners including access to Hospitality options on offer.  Whilst CMR will do its best to secure and allocate tickets for all attending owners – there may be a ballot for popular events.
  • The primary purpose of participating in a classic race car syndicate or racing club is to experience the enjoyment of co-ownership of classic race cars, not necessarily in order to receive financial return.

If you are interested in becoming a Syndicate Member, for further information please contact us at chrismarshracing@gmail.com

With 45 years in the automotive industry there is barely a make of car that Chris hasn’t repaired, rebuilt or raced.  All work undertaken by Chris Marsh Classics will be personally assured or undertaken by Chris
