Industry Focus – Parr Motosports

Recently Torque Tube Media visited Parr Motorsports in Thomastown Victoria. We had a bit of a look around and also had a chat to Owner/Proprietor Adrian Parr.

Parr Motorsports has been operating out of the current venue for over 5 years now. Adrian Parr owns the business with his wife Kim who assists in the shop. In past seasons Adrian has been a Sprintcar Driver himself, but now reverts to the occasional cameo appearance simply because of the success and associated demands of his business.

Adrian Parr and wife Kim have built Parr Motorsports up to a very successful and respected business.

Dave Murcott is also a key member of the Parr Motorsports Team. Dave is currently racing on the National Sprintcar scene and he undertakes specialised mechanical tasks involving diffs, shocks and other key items.

Dave Murcott races Sprintcars on the National Scene on weekends and is a handy assett to have working during the week at Parr Motorsports - Here Dave gets amongst it in the Parr workshop

Parr motorsports supplies both new and used spares Australia Wide.  Predominantly this supply is to the Sprintcar ranks (Winged and Wingless), but has also expanded over the years to also support Formula 500’s and basic parts with regard to Sedans and Junior Sedans.

Rear ends are in abundance - brand new Winters or if you prefer, pre-loved units like these

 

Parts are easy to identify, bagged and are clearly displayed. Consumables are a big mover as well.

These days Parr Motorsports runs not only a tight ship, but also a house car (Sprintcar V77). This year Victorian Driver Darren Mollenoyux is lucky enough to be the Driver of the new V77 –  GF1 Chassis. Last year it was Matthew Reed. Parr’s also have a variety of sponsorship deals with local Victorian Sprintcars as well as a number of high profile Interstaters.

Adrian Parr is very exited to be a Distributor for GF1 Sprintcar Chassis’s. These are a new  concept in frame design that is particularly different forward of the engine plate. (Read the earlier feature on the GF1 chassis – http://torquetube.com.au/2011/10/26/steve-adley-takes-delivery-of-first-gf1-chassis-for-western-australia/).

The aim is to create a more forgiving and flexible front end via some different bar angles and “spreader” hoops.

If a new Chassis is beyond the budget, Parr Motorsport has a bucket load of pre-raced chassis's that are as good as new

Parr Motorsports are also Distributors for Winters Rear Ends, Fuel Safe Bladder Tanks, Pro Shocks and Wings Unlimited just to name a few.

In terms of other services, Parr Motorsports also offer:

  • All bolt-on spares, brakes, rims, wings, consumables and more
  • Shock Dyno work
  • Torsion Bar Dyno work
  • Rear End rectification/rebuild and Assembly
  • Race Car Assembly
  • Race Fuel

Rims are readily available and in stock - new or used

Adrian Parr is very upbeat about the coming season and is keen to build the business up even further. He is the first to admit that he’s looking at the proposition of more staff and a major push on the internet/parts ordering front, plus of course major sales of the incredibly unique GF1 Sprintcar Chassis.

Parr Motorsports has a fabulous array of both new and second hand parts, consumables and so on. Everything is laid out and organised making selection that much easier. Customer service is second to none.

And if you cant make it to the shop, Parr Motorsports provide a wide selection of key components from the Transporter at the Race Track.

A good selection of spares is always available direct from the Parr Transporter at the track
