MSSW Reviews & Testimonials

“I recently recommended Motorsports Southwest to a friend of mine looking for a car with some spares and parts support. One of the main reasons I steered him towards the Wolf race car is because when I drove one, it was my favorite CN car I have driven and one of my favorite prototypes I have driven to date.”

“I would like to thank Motorsports Southwest for the fantastic experience at the Arrive and Drive at Circuit of the Americas on Saturday, February 24, 2018. The BMW factory race prep car was like new and great to drive. The great assistance from your support team from sign up to track day made it easy and without a doubt a true Arrive and Drive experience.”

“After getting back from racing Baja 1000 and the 25 Hours of Thunderhill, and I decided to go and spend a weekend at COTA.  I live in Los Angeles, where I race a Porsche GT3R in club racing (POC, PCCA, SCCA, NASA). Prior to my arrival to Austin, Texas, I contacted Dean Turnbaugh at Arrive and Drive/LMP Experience at Motorsports Southwest and asked him to set up the weekend. This included arranging for the track time, cars, and the coaching.  I flew in on Friday, and I drove a BMW M235iR on Saturday (was raining) and the Wolf LMP Prototype on Sunday.  The coaching was provided from Simon at Badger Racetech.  The MSSW team, as expected, took care of everything, making it a real arrive and drive operation.  I found the cars to be in good condition, properly maintained and the coaching to be outstanding.  I had a great time, and I look forward to going back soon. I highly recommend their operation, as a great way to learn COTA and also to work on the racing skills.”

The Wolf Driving Experience. “I took it to the next level by renting the Wolf from Motorsports Southwest. The most exciting driving experience in my life was on the famous F1 track the Circuit of the Americas in a LMP prototype race car capable of extreme performance. I felt like a fighter pilot pushing myself to my G limit in every corner and braking zone. I went faster than any other car is capable of doing on this track except maybe the F1 cars.”

The Arrive and Drive Experience. “My wife and I were able to attend happy hour, dinner and relax all while the crew at Motorsports Southwest transported and prepared the car with tires, brake pads, and fuel. When we arrived, the car was warmed up and ready to go. I focused on driving; the crew focused on the car setup. The Motorsports crew checked with me after each session. The crew provided lap times, car data, video and a bit of coaching. Thank you Motorsports Southwest for a great stress-free track weekend.”

The BMW 235iR Driving Experience. “I was able to test drive the latest factory build BMW race car, the 235iR, on the Circuit of the Americas track supplied by Peter Chang at Motorsports Southwest. The car felt light and easy to handle. To my surprise, the car has an unexpected high amount of front grip allowing me to point into corners well. This car comes complete with roll cage, variable traction control, air jacks, PFC brakes and more, right from the factory. A great track or race car experience.”

Motorsports Southwest. “I would like to thank Dean and Peter from Motorsports Southwest for their outstanding attention to detail and their commitment to providing an excellent race car experience for me at the Circuit of the Americas track. See you at the track again soon!”


“I rented the Pro Formula Mazda for Dean (Southwest Motorsports for an Edge Addicts’ event at Cota in December. The whole experience was just amazing. Having Dean and his team help with seat position and padding made me comfortable in the car. The car ran perfectly all day. Being my first time in a formula car was a bit intimidating, but his whole team got me comfortable, and the car setup was spot on. I will be renting from Dean for the next event in March. The experience of arrive and drive made the whole weekend very easy, and I am now spoiled.”
