The R3 Management Team: Ryan Negri and Rudy Courtade:

 

Ryan & Rudy have been business partners for twenty years. At an early age Ryan began racing karts. As a result of his success within the karting discipline he contemplated starting his first business. Having met Rudy through racing, the two drivers forged a partnership called KRC Racing. KRC provided a stress free, arrive & drive environment for serious Kart racers.

As KRC grew and developed they attracted new clients. One of these clients, Ferrari of Beverly Hills was interested in having Ryan & Rudy provide race support for the Ferrari owners that were interested in racing in the Ferrari Challenge series. Thus began R3 Motorsports, and for 10 consecutive years, R3 has been the exclusive race support and logistics provider for several Ferrari dealership before Ferrari of San Francisco.

 

But there is more to R3 than the Ferrari Challenge. Having had clients who are based in Korea, Europe and Latin America has provided R3 with a wealth of experience in multitude of series such as the Italian GT and GT3 series as well as Korean GTC. In addition, R3 participated in the Grand AM Motorola Cup series. Having consistentlyProvided our clients with a level of service and dependability that is second to none, R3 has enjoyed a lengthy relationship with all of its clients.

This is due in no small part to Rudy Courtade, Chief Technical Officer of R3, who is responsible for getting the cars to the start line and keeping them going in the right direction. Having been

A "former" United States Marine, (we've been informed that there is no such thing as a "former Marine"), Rudy can call upon his past experiences and muster the troops when the situation calls for it, for example: pulling an all-nighter to get a wayward car back on the track.

 

Ryan Negri, President of R3, is responsible for keeping the Team focused and managing our drivers and the concerns that they have. During events Ryan can be found in the "eye of the storm", making sure that R3 continues it's winning ways. With his depth and knowledge of car handling and set-up, Ryan is the "go-to" guy when a car is not behaving, as a driver wouldlike.

 

Ryan & Rudy have been competitive in every series they have worked in and that is the cornerstone to the R3 success story
