Posted - 11/26/2013 : 23:29:02 Orlando, FL - November 12, 2013 - Chin Motorsports, the leading provider of non-competition track days for sports car enthusiasts, announced additions to their ownership and management teams today that will make it possible to bring their track day driving experiences to drivers and tracks in the Central U.S. Long-time General Manager Mark Hicks has become an equity partner in the business joining Founders and Co-owners Dr. Wei-Shen Chin and Vincent Howard. In addition, Jason Wade has been named the Operations Manager for the Central Region.
“Since our founding in 1999, Chin Motorsports has made it our mission to offer the best track day driving experience for high-performance sport car owners that is available anywhere,” said Dr. Wei-Shen Chin, President and CEO of Chin Motorsports. “The steady growth in our membership and in our track day schedule has demonstrated that we are delivering on our motto of ‘More Tracks. More Track Time’. Mark Hicks has been a huge part of our success and I am excited to have him as a member of the ownership team as we begin this new expansion.”
Sometimes called High Performance Driver Education (HPDE), Chin track days offer drivers of any experience level an opportunity to take their own car on some of North America’s most legendary race tracks while receiving expert driver coaching from seasoned instructors. Already well established as the leading provider of sports car track days from Florida to New York, Chin Motorsports has responded to driver demand in expanding their service to west of the Mississippi from Louisiana to Texas and north to Wisconsin. New venues and dates in the Central region will be announced along with the complete 2014 Chin Motorsports track days schedule in December.
"It has been a long-term goal of mine to become an owner of Chin Motorsports, and it is a privilege to partner with Dr. Chin and Vincent", said Mark Hicks, General Manager of Chin Motorsports since 2004. "Our expansion into a new region that we've not previously served is made possible by Jason Wade joining the management team. It takes a unique combination of skills and experience to take on this role, and Jason is just the guy."
Jason, a lifelong fan of motorsports, started his career in the radio industry until a relocation in 2007 to Salt Lake City, Utah. He took on the role of Competition Manager of Miller Motorsports Park before being promoted to Manager of Track Operations. After almost six years, Jason was hired by Circuit of the Americas in 2012 as Manager of Track Operations. "It came as a pleasant surprise to learn that Chin Motorsports was targeting expansion into the Central states", he said. "When I was approached by Wei-Shen, Vince and Mark, I realized that this was a rare opportunity. The reputation of Chin Motorsports among sports car owners is that they are a high-quality and high-integrity company, and they consistently fulfill the driving expectations of a discerning clientele,” Jason continued. “That's the brand reputation that I want to be associated with. This opportunity is right up my alley, and I am excited to join their program.”
