Shawn Bassett

Shawn Bassett 2021 Pikes Peak

Owner | Lead Builder/Fabricator | Driver

Shawn's passion for racing started at an early age, beginning with building bikes and cars. Since the age of ten, and over the past 26 years, he has raced a bit of everything including Sport Bikes, Flat Track, Superminis, Supermoto, and Time Attack. In 2004, Shawn began two-wheeled racing with sanctioning bodies as a hobbyist. 
Inspired by the physical, mental, and mechanical engineering challenges of running one of the most demanding courses in the world, Pikes Peak, Shawn began to build his purpose-built all-carbon 240Z in 2016. 
Shawn's Z has become among the most recognizable Z's out there today. Realizing his bucket list dream, Shawn successfully competed in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in 2020 & 2021.
Using all of the skills and knowledge from a lifetime of building and racing, Shawn has turned his passion into his business. In 2020, Shawn and Jaime came together to form ATC Racing.
