TEAM CSR began life way back in 1989 when, as a twenty year old, Chris Sammons started motor cycle racing at his local track - Darley Moor in 1989, and soon was a regular top six finisher on his RGV 250 Suzuki
By 1990 Chris was soon winning races, taking 8 wins to beat his rivals, (one of which was a young M. Rutter!) to the Supersport 400 championship at Darley Moor, in only his first full seasons racing. A switch to four strokes in 1991 made little difference to his winning ways and again became champion of Darley Moor this time in the supersport 600 by the end of 1992. .
The next ten years saw much travel, racing at National , British Championship and Club level of racing always on Supersport 600 machinery and his trophy cabinet grew considerably. Most noticable acheivements came with the New Era racing club with race wins at Donnington Park, Mallory Park, Cadwell Park, Snetterton and the favourite Oulton Park all on Keith Whiting tuned CBR 600 Hondas .Frequent returns to Darley Moor for over 15 years has seen results rarely outside the top 5 in the Formula 600 class. Chris has collected a trophey at Darley, for each of the 18 years he has raced there!!!!
For the start of the millenenium , and for a couple of years Chris was self employed and worked as a race mechanic for Graig Milner and laterly his late son Curtis ,( Graig won the Darley Moor Championship in 2000 ). A brief spell spannering for Jamie Morley in British Superstock , with Nick Morgan`s MSS Race Team and in 2002 Juan Kinnish in British Supersport on the Wilson and Colins Kawaski ZXR600.Still concentrating on his race preparation buisiness, a trip to race in the Manx GP as a newcomer in 2002, saw the realisation of a another racing dream, the famous TT circuit.
