The story of RSR (Ron Simons Racing) reads like an adventure out of passion for driving. Tired of soul-less office work and congested city life, RSR Founder Ron Simons ‘escaped’ from the Netherlands and headed down south, driving toward full freedom.
Spa-Francorchamps, alongside the Nürburgring and Monza as the holy grail of historic Grand Prix Tracks was always a draw for Ron. The fact that most Formula One Drivers rate Spa as the best track, and Eau Rouge as the best corner in the world is only the beginning. Ron would visit in his student years driving up and down the new “short cut” section from the shortened circuit, avoiding traffic in both directions – since it was still a public road at the time.
For Ron, it was all about enjoying real driving with friends back then and it still is today. Over the years, RSR has grown in size and now includes a team of over 20 passionate staff and an international network of agents, as well as over 100 track prepared rental cars in every sports car segment.
RSR has introduced and helped tens of thousands of people drive both at the Nürburgring Nordschleife and Spa-Francorchamps in safety.
