If you don't have the track record of success, it will be hard. You'll have to undercut the opposition due to lack of experience, and hope you get some good drivers to get you the good sets of results from which to build. The driver would be looking for you on how to go faster, so unless you've done it yourself, you'll need to have ready access to someone experienced with the cars in race trim to find those 1/10ths of second.
Ok some good advice there and I completely understand it is a tough proposition to get a customers buy in. Surely there are available race mechanics to hire who can assist in finding those 1/10ths?
