What lead up to the beginning of Race3
Race3 Motorsport is the brainchild of Jay Thornton, a dedicated Motorsport enthusiast with deep roots in the fabrication and design aspect of the performance industry. Jay has been developing parts for the industry since 1999, starting out in a run down shop in Kingston Ontario.
For 7 years he worked on his own trying to fulfill the 4cyl turbo market. After a contact from a few performance and Motorsport industry icons, he moved on to more platforms, and broadened his capabilites in product development with the extensive use of Solidworks. Jump now to 2007 - he started more training and work with a few notable companies in Oxford, by then the itch to expand the part development section of his resume grew.
By 2010 he was working with Vibrant Performance doing part development for a wide variety of companies and the Vibrant Performance catalog items. The 9 year chapter with Vibrant has come to a close in 2019, with the focus now on his own product line and development services.
