Tachyon Motorsport

Passion for racing

Tachyon Motorsport is specialized in race & rally support. Through our passion and experience in historic and modern motorsport, we strive to offer top quality.

Mainly, our services consist of the maintaining, modifying and building of race cars. Of course, taking into account the actual FIA rules and the originality of the car.

In addition, we provide customized service where needed during race and rally events worldwide.

At our location in Soest we also provide the opportunity to use our Race Cafe, which is the ideal venue for a drink, meeting or other event. If you would like to know more about Tachyon Motorsport or you want to visit us, please contact us.

Tachyon back in 2004

Tachyon Motorsport always wants to finish as #1. You too? Welcome!

Since 2004 Tachyon Motorsport has actively joined in both historical and contemporary racing. Founder / owner Maarten Buitenhuis, raised in a family in which Alfa Romeo played a major role, has gained a lot of experience in national and international touring car championships. He combined both the passions with contemporary engineering experience when he founded the company / Tachyon Motorsport.

Maarten gathered some enthusiastic professionals, like technician Donald Bramer, who has strengthened Tachyon Motorsport since 2010 and now serves as Operational Manager. Donald gained his experience with touring car racing, the Spyker Squadron, Le Mans and endurance racing. He may rightly be called ‘mister fix-it’.

Within the Tachyon team there is a lot of knowledge and expertise with classic Alfa Romeos, BMWs and Porsches, but also with classic Mustangs and Corvettes. The fact that Tachyon Motorsport received a request from the United States a few years ago to run a European race program with an Alfa Romeo Tipo 33, tells everything about the fame and quality of the organization.

Tachyon Motorsport is part of the Tachyon Group which deals with many different sorts of engineering and construction and therefor have customers around the world. The broad knowledge and innovative urge in these companies also plays a key role in our sports activities. That makes us absolutely unique and both extra efficient and successful.

Products & services

Tachyon Motorsport Workshop

Tachyon Motorsport is specialized in:

  • building classic and contemporary race/rally cars
  • customizing, modifying and tuning these cars and street cars;
  • developing completely new cars, such as the Corvette Grand Sport;
  • developing special parts and the (re)production of small numbers of these;
  • providing HTP and NL license plate registration.

Of course, all aspects and parts of our work will take full account of the rules and regulations, with the originality of the car in mind and with the aim of delivering only winning cars. We will gladly inform you about the variety of cars we have restored, prepared and maintained in recent years. We have built a solid international reputation with good, reliable and affordable work.

Tachyon Motorsport has already provided customized service to many events. We did and do this at locations ranging from almost every country in Europe and even anywhere between the African deserts and Australia. The service ranges from just setting up an EZUP tent to race/rally car transport to full service during endurance racing and long distance rallies. We have recently taken a folded wheelchair behind our “service” Ferrari 348 TS Targa during a classic rally. Everything is possible.

The combination of our service and our engineering quality makes it also possible to make successful ‘arrive & drive’ appointments. We prepare the car, transport it to a location anywhere in the world, take care of all the paperwork and the customer flies in, races and flies back. We then ensure that cars, parts and crews return safely and efficiently.

We have the right people employed for the job or we know how to find the right people. The customers wish and the will to excellence in quality always come first. Rally and race organizations are keen to collaborate with us due to our quality, employability and service.

Tachyon Motorsport uses the premise that no assignment is either too small or too big. You ask and we deliver:

  • thorough advice;
  • standard maintenance;
  • MOT (APK) service (also for challenging projects)
  • full rebuilds.

Due to our own engineering department with technical ‘bright guys’ with petrol running through their veins, a wide range of technical solutions can be offered. Also, computer-aided design can be used to develop and manufacture special parts. This may include both single piece and small series production. If these specific parts are needed for historical car racing, they are of course manufactured from historically accurate materials. Think about:

  • special wiring looms;
  • exhausts and exhaust manifolds;
  • suspension parts for the rally purpose Corvette Grand Sport;
  • brakes upgrade sets;
  • cooling systems;
  • new parts via reverse engineering.
