Leading Austin-based motorsports organization Moorespeed has been named the official Texas dealer for Radical Sportscars Limited. Moorespeed will immediately begin a sales and support program for both new and existing Radical customers throughout Texas and the Southwestern region of the United States.
“We are delighted to appoint Moorespeed as our new Texas dealer,” said Joe Anwyll, CEO of Radical Sportscars Limited. “Moorespeed’s pedigree and professionalism further bolsters our strong network of dealers across North America. For over 25 years, President David Moore has won and worked with the who’s who of motorsport and continues to do so with 1990 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Price Cobb as General Manager.”
“As our customers know, what makes the Radical experience unique is the full-service nature of our dealers who provide driver development and coaching along with trackside support, storage, transport and preparation,” added Anwyll. “Who better to take aspiring racers from track days or karting to professional ranks in our Radical products than guys who have won championships and have won Le Mans?”
Moorespeed already have a long history with the Radical brand, with Moore and Cobb having supported and prepared Radicals for customers during the past several years while also operating a winning IMSA and Pirelli World Challenge teams.
“We are very pleased to become the newest dealer in the U.S., covering Texas and surrounding states for Radical Sportscars Limited,” commented David Moore, President of Moorespeed. “Personally, I’m sentimental about the brand. After a long sabbatical from professional racing, Radical was the first true race car that Moorespeed looked to for working with clients, coaching and supporting them to achieve their racing dreams while simultaneously establishing our Porsche GT3 Cup program. We currently service and offer race support for a fair number of Radical racers, which helped the relationship between Moorespeed and Radical grow naturally.”
Moore expects the Radical relationship to not only help grow his business but to make motorsport more accessible to Texans, who have been captivated by top-level series such as Formula 1 since the opening of Circuit of the Americas in 2012.
“One of our main goals is to continue to help grow the racing culture at our home in Austin. From starting in karting all the way through the professional ranks, Radical Sportscars offers a great step in the ladder as it truly is a successful ‘development series’ in the UK, with plans to grow here in the U.S. with the new North American Radical Cup that has been aligned with Pirelli World Challenge. Radical will help us tremendously in filling a gap to introduce both young competitors to the sport and provide an additional platform for more gentlemen racers to further develop their skill.”
The 2018 Radical Cup North America season will commence on March 23-25 at Circuit of the Americas, just over five miles down the road from Moorespeed’s facility.
