Moorespeed was founded in 1991 in Austin, Texas, and is owned by David and Chris Moore. Moorespeed offers professional racing services and tailor-made packages for the club or vintage racer from simple track preparation to full track support and driver coaching.
David Moore has more than 25 years experience as a race engineer, team manager and crew chief in IMSA, PSCR, USRRC, and SCCA Speedvision World Challenge. Moorespeed was partnered with Toad Hall Motor Racing for many years, managing all of its professional racing needs. Prior to running the Toad Hall team, David Moore was either crew chief and or team manager for the Exxon Superflo IMSA Porsche GT3 team (“the Tiger Car”), Carolina Turkey MCR Riley Scott Ford WSC team, Konrad Motorsports GTS1 Porsche team for Daytona 97, Colucci MCR Racing GTS2 Porsche team, The Racers Group Porsche GTS3 IMSA team and others.
A key portion of Moorespeed's business is exotic road car services. The company's Full Service Street Sports Car division specializes in complete sales, service, repair, restoration and customization of Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini and other exotic or rare automobiles. Moorespeed is equipped with all of the factory diagnostic computers for these cars as well as a chassis dynamometer, engine build room, machine shop and in-house performance tuning equipment. Moorespeed also has a soft spot for old muscle cars or anything that is cool that goes fast. Moorespeed's facility is located only 5 miles from The Circuit of the Americas (COTA), offering car storage for road and race cars.
In 2013, David Moore realized he missed competition and reconnected with life friend and retired pro driver Price Cobb, who wanted to come home to Texas. Cobb joined Moorespeed as general manager and team driver coach. Cobb has more than 30 years in professional motorsports as a driver and team manager in FIA, SCCA, IMSA, PSCR, SpeedVision World Challenge, IRL and the American Le Mans Series. He is considered a legend, retiring the USA Porsche Cup after winning it three consecutive times and then winning the worldwide Porsche Cup. Another highlight of Cobb’s career was driving the TWR Jaguar to overall victory at the 1990 24 Hours of Le Mans.
In 2014, Cobb and David Moore decided to take the company back into pro racing but this time to form a development program to help young drivers get their “break,” as each had struggled early in their driving careers due to lack of funds. They feel strongly that today’s talent is overshadowed by those more fortunate. It has been their mission to “give back” and the reason why, for the second year in a row, Moorespeed is helping young drivers in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama.
In 2015, Moorespeed supported rookie driver Will Hardeman, sponsored by Wholesale Parts Direct (WPD), both from Moorespeed’s hometown of Austin, Texas. Hardeman's first time in a race car was July 31, 2014 with Cobb and David Moore coaching him. Since then, the team has put together one of them most aggressive offseason testing/training programs ever to get Hardeman ready to be a contender in the 2015 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama.
