Thunder Bunny Racing is driven by a simple principle: a love for racing. In 2016, a group of friends arrived at Watkins Glen International Raceway, armed with a Nissan 350z nicknamed the "Thunder Bunny," for their first endurance race - and Thunder Bunny Racing was born. Since the beginning, TBR has always been about having a competitive car with the mentality of winning, and most importantly, having a great time with the best of friends. Many years have passed since the trusty Nissan days, and BMW's and Porsches have since been added to the stable, as well as new and talented crew members. Once you spend time with our team and our cars, you'll want to be a part of this family who appears to multiply like bunnies.
