The Cobra Group of Companies / CRS Racing

Chris Niarchos is not only a committed and successful businessman, but also a motorsports enthusiast. In 2007, he married these two passions when he formed CRS Racing in partnership with British driver Andrew Kirkaldy.

Chris brings his passion, dedication and skill to bear in all he does so it was not surprising that CRS was a successful GT racing team – and Chris himself was a talented driver.

His career highlights include being crowned 2006 British GT Champion and winning the MSA Gold Flag and the 2006 Cavallino Trophy in the same year.

Chris has long since retired from the track himself, but he maintains a business interest in the sport. In 2011, CRS Racing joined forces with McLaren Motorsport to form McLaren GT, to manufacture world-class GT3 racing cars based on the McLaren MP4-12C high-performance sports car.
