Taurino Racing started in South Africa in the nineties as a Ford-sponsored TransAm Racing team. After proving the team’s competitive strength and success in the national series, the team was approached to organize corporate Ferrari Racing Experience programs. Seemingly overnight, international brands including Phillip Morris, Shell, Marlboro, Pirelli, and Acer came to Taurino as sponsors and clients for their corporate experiential events.
The start of the Ferrari Driving Experience in turn shifted the Taurino Racing program to campaign Ferrari F360 GT and F360 Challenge as their weapon of choice. This dual-pronged focus on Ferrari products created a large demand for Ferrari enthusiasts and owners in the area coming to the shop for their street car work in addition to track preparation. The close ties to the factory and other racing shops lead to both in-house and collaborative development of performance upgrade parts for both road and race cars carrying the Prancing Horse.
Relocating to United States, the business continued to develop and grow, increasing to today’s current focus on Ferrari Challenge and OEM parts distribution. Now based in West Palm Beach (Florida), Taurino Racing is the go-to supplier for Ferrari race parts distribution, track preparation, and car sales. Currently housed in a 10,000 sq/ft facility, the brand has a rotating inventory of new and used Challenge cars, dozens of parts cars, and hundreds of rows of OEM/upgrade parts available.
Taurino Racing is currently an official sponsor of the International GT race series, as well as the exclusive North American distributor for Capristo Exhaust and TM Performance Brakes.
