Claudio Burtin is owner and principal driver of Burtin Racing. Burtin Racing is based out of Alpharetta, Georgia and is one of the top road racing contenders in North America. The team has competed in a number of different road race formulas, most notably including a Porsche 997 GT3 in North American endurance racing events.
Claudio currently resides in Marietta, Georgia, nearby to the race shop headquarters. The team contends in the Trans Am Championship, fielding Chevrolet Corvette and Camaro TA class cars. As owner and principal of the race team that bears his name, Claudio’s role combines a myriad of tasks – from securing sponsorships to developing the graphics on the race car and engineering insights for performance and technical specifications.
Burtin has loved racing ever since he was a young boy. In fact, one of his favorite racing experiences was getting to enjoy some Argentinian wine with his childhood hero and five-time F1 racing champion, Juan Manuel Fangio. Another one of his favorite memories involves winning a Formula Ford race with both his father and uncle looking on; It was the proudest moment he had ever seen his father regarding one of his accomplishments.
Prior to devoting himself full time to motorsports, Claudio has been a tremendously successful and accomplished industrialist. In commerce and industry, he revolutionized the polyurethane industry with the development of LINE-X® protective coatings and later PAXCON® energy resistant coatings. Since applying these polyurethane technologies to the automotive industry, there are now more than seven million trucks worldwide benefitting from the installation of LINE-X®, which prevents rust formation and protects vehicles from all types of weather conditions for the life of the vehicle.
Claudio applies the same spirit of innovation and attention to detail to his race team.
When he isn’t busy with Burtin Racing, he enjoys fishing, hunting, tennis, golf and basketball.
