Upon release of his first solo album, Farin Urlaub initially didn't intend to go on tour. However, a backing group was formed for a performance at Top of the Pops, in the course of which he met Nessie and Rachel. Due to the immense fun of this Urlaub decided to do a tour after all and formed the Farin Urlaub Racing Team picking its members either based on his own experience or recommendations from acquaintances.
In 2002 the band accompanied him to Rock am Ring, the Taubertal Festival or to Forestglade, among others. Since their album "Die Wahrheit übers Lügen" (German for 'The Truth about Lying', 2008) FURT also acts as a studio band for Urlaub's albums, but always includes horn blowers of The Busters. Urlaub himself describes them as "ein Orchester voller Dynamit" ('A dynamite orchestra').
