Always Evolving Racing* is a professional motorsport team competing in the Pirelli World Challenge. Based in Los Angeles, our team was founded in March 2013 by Roger Rodas and Erik Davis to combine their passion for cars with their desire to support their favorite charitable organizations. Following Roger’s tragic passing in November 2013, the team has established "Racing in Honor" as their internal mission for the 2014 season in his memory. The Always Evolving team added noted driving professional David Sterckx for the 2014 season to support our competitive goals.
Roger Rodas built Always Evolving Racing to bring all his personal passions together "like a family," as he liked to say. With Always Evolving, Roger created a platform to combine his philanthropic efforts with his passion for family, friends, clients and racing.
Always Evolving Racing closed its inaugural season in 2013 in the Pirelli World Challenge GTS class with great optimism and some encouraging successes uncommon for a brand new team. But the promise of Always Evolving Racing's first season ended in devastating tragedy. Roger and his close friend- Actor/Producer Paul Walker - were killed in an accident involving their Porsche Carrera GT following a charity event.
In our grief, however, we have found strength in a collective passion to continue the pursuit of Roger’s vision. The Always Evolving family has regrouped to compete for a championship and sustain our support of several outstanding non-profit organizations. "Racing in Honor" has become our mantra for the 2014 season – in Roger’s' memory and to realize his vision.
Designated charities for the 2014 season include Mustard Seed Ranch, which serves children who have been neglected, abused, orphaned, and are in need of a loving family environment; and Dream Rides for Kids, a Los Angeles based non-profit organization dedicated to instilling self-worth, confidence and hope to at-risk youth using the motivational inspiration of exotic cars and their owner-mentors.
