CRS Racing is a British motor racing team, founded in late 2007 by Chris Niarchos and Andrew Kirkaldy.
The team hit the headlines almost immediately when one of its Ferraris won the first British GT race of the 2008 season and went on to take the teams’ title. Championship victory in Formula Renault and race victories in the FIA GT Championship completed a very successful first year for the new team.
Chris and Andrew first met when they raced together in the British GT Championship and at the 2006 Le Mans 24 Hours. At that time, Andrew was running a Formula Renault team and, at the end of 2006, Chris joined him as a partner and ‘AKA Cobra’ was born. This partnership sowed the seeds for a much larger undertaking and, at the end of 2007, CRS Racing was formed to compete not only in Formula Renault but in the world of GT racing as well.
