CanTorque Racing

To Colin, racing always seemed like a fantasy world, like watching Star Trek on the TV screen... not something he could actually experience himself; or could he? Colin eventually began travelling with his family Don and Mark Campbell who ran dragsters through Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest. It was that experience that drew Colin and CanTorque to racing sponsorships.

In 2008 Colin completed the circle from fantasy to reality when he signed his first Indycar sponsorship with Alex Tagliani. Alex rejoined the IndyCar series with Conquest Racing. Along with the growth of CanTorque came sponsorships at higher levels of racing. Through this success, both Colin and Alex, co-founded Tagliani Autosport competing in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series.

CanTorque Go Kart Racing

Not content to simply watch racing from the sidelines Colin put his hand on a go kart in 2008 when he and Mark bought their first race kart and was finally able to call himself a racer. Colin and Mark intended to share the kart but that lasted one race once they discovered that neither of them wanted to miss races. Over the winter they bought a second kart to be able to race with each other. The thrill of the race is there every time he puts on his helmet and race suit.

Together, with his son Parker who also works at CanTorque, they enjoy the hobby of tuning and massaging their karts. If you keep tabs on the go kart circuit, you may find CanTorque Racing karts blazing around the track!
