Gulf Coast Karters is pleased to announce a new sponsor Joe Bauhs Motorsports!
Joe Bauhs Motorsports is a family owned kart service company with a direct focus on bringing quality services and products to the Houston karting community.
Joe has been racing and tuning karts for over 20 years, having himself won many Regional and National Titles and Events, he has worked as a tuner for novices through Pro drivers in karts and has experience working with Formula Ford, Spec Racer Ford, Legend and Late Model Sprint cars.
JB Motorsports has grown from simply helping people at the track, then providing chassis tuning and maintenance services to now being a full service company. Today JB Motorsports is an authorized Intrepid dealer, providing new and used Intrepid chassis and parts support, turnkey engine and chassis packages, track side services, maintenance services, full arrive and drive services and indeed now also offers engine repair and rebuild services. Through some of our associates the team can also provide driver coaching and data analysis at the track.
JB Motorsports is here to serve our customers first, not just on club race weekends but also during private test sessions where you just want to get out to the track and test to find the right set-up or work on driving technique. Our team works with the youngest drivers all the way through to seasoned drivers running in Masters classes, but in each case our customers are people who love to race and want to enjoy what they are doing to the fullest.
At JB Motorsports, our passion is racing, we are here because we love to do this and love to be around other people who share the same passion. For us it's not about the business it's about the friends we make and enjoy being around while doing this! Our focus is to bring quality, fairly priced services and products to the karting community. If you didn't enjoy Karting you wouldn't be doing it, we enjoy helping you so that you can enjoy it even more! This is our motivation.
~ Joe Bauhs.
