The Lizard has lots of friends. He has to: managing a race team is no easy task! A lot of people have done great work for me and have helped out on all the little projects the car (and its driver!) need to stay competitive. Please consider them for your business.

Carlo and Taryn are great friends, and I rent one of their cars for the enduro. Carlo is one of the best drivers I know personally, and his wife Taryn isn't far behind him. tcmotorsports.net has information about renting their cars, as well as notes on their latest adventures behind the wheel.

I take the race car to Strictly BMW Independent Service. They race, too, so they know what my problem is -- or, at least, they're good at figuring out what's wrong with my car. A driver has to really trust his mechanic, and these guys deserve it. Of course, they service street cars, and work on my daily driver which is an M3 Coupe.

Andy Collins runs Armadillo Racing. This guy is simply a good egg: he's very honest and patiently gives great advice about the products we need. Adny brings a giant trailer to all the local races and sources all the parts racers either break or forget. Without him, many of us simply couldn't start!
