Competition Vehicle Preparation

Here At Tyspeed - our company’s foundation is in Motorsport. We have always been of the premise “Race on Sunday, Sell on Monday” which is an age old saying from the late great Carrol Shelby himself.

We’ve got an intense passion for tracked vehicles, as well as the preparation that goes into them.

It takes expert attention to detail and great levels of knowledge-based solely on experience- to provide our clients with the right stuff their cars need to perform on track reliably and safely. Tyler Pappas- the company’s principal and motorsport aficionado- has a decade of on track experience racing BMW’s from HPDE (high performance driving events) all the way up to the top of Pikes Peak’s Hill climb in Colorado, and many arenas in between. As a team however, we have what it takes to make your dreams of tracking your car a reality and can help every step of the way, from pre-track inspection to full build-outs , assistance in picking the right parts or personal safety gear, and even where to invest your time on track by picking the right organizations to run with and more. We can fully handle all aspects of this sport/hobby and even make ourselves available from a consultation point of view, and offer at-track coaching services as well. If you are looking for a shop to help you get your car on track, or have a car you already track and are not receiving the services you think you need to be successful, I encourage you to reach out and discuss your needs with us, to see how we can help. Below are a few success stories of clients we have helped in the past:

Duncan Lauder’s Spec E46

Tyler and the team at BimmerService by Tyspeed are the only people I’ll use to build and maintain my Spec E46 car. Their professionalism and attention to detail is next level and I always leave feeling confident my car is safe and thoroughly prepared for another season. It’s no surprise Tyler’s business has grown over the past 5 years, he delivers top quality service at a reasonable price.
