CBCFS Racing #1116 Race Engine

CBCFS Racing was established in 2011 by young friends Paul Nauleau and Ryan Crook of San Francisco, CA. By April of 2012, they were racing their first VORRA race in their newly built class 11, #1116 dubbed “The Ghost,” in which they took third place out of five for the weekend. After their first try at the desert in 2012 Yerington, NV, they learned (as many of us do) that their car needed more necessary work to be competitive! This is where TLR came in, with regards to the motor anyway. CBCFS approached us for a custom Class 11 1600 motor for #1116 with the potential for the ultimate goal of the SCORE Baja 1000. March 2013 marked their first race with their improved car at the VORRA Season Opener, in which they took second place out of four.

TLR is proud to support CBCFS Racing and look forward to their progress as they learn and grow. Please visit their Facebook page here.

2015 UPDATE!

Paul Nauleau, head of CBCFS Racing, contacted us again in early 2015 about his plans for making November’s 2015 BugLight SCORE Baja 1000. Well, of course we would love to help him race it again! I must say, it has been an honor and privilege to work with CBCFS Racing. Their team is organized, determined, learn quickly, and overall generally just NICE people. A more worthy team of the Baja title is hard to imagine. I will post here later when team experience stories have been shared, and let them tell you in their own words. We followed the race online and via cell phone communication from start to end, and what an anxiety-ridden, close race with some well-matched competition it was. Leads and placements were swapped more times than I can count.

#1116 CBCFS Racing/Paul Nauleau for the first place finisher in the Baja 1000! It unfortunately does not count as a win, as they did not make it to the finish within the 33 hour mark. But a finish in the Baja is bragging rights within itself, so regardless of trophy or no, this is a win on our book! Congratulations!

CBCFS’ TLR engine by Gary Herrod, freshened up for a successful run at the 2013 SCORE Baja 1000!

We were very proud of these guys. They raced like men despite their age, and earned second of six Class 11’s in the 2013 SCORE Baja 1000 after finishing 760 miles out of 833 total and timing out – against veteran race teams. Read their race recap here.

CBCFS Racing’s #1116 at the 2013 VORRA Season Opener in March. Despite some electrical issues such as a broken ignition switch, burned relays, a couple shorts, a broken distributor, and an air filter that decided to wanted to be independent from the carb, these boys proved they are competitive and will be a team on the watch-list. Second place of four.
