Finishing 4th in round one and 2nd in round two, Brian Alder’s weekend at Sebring was a fantastic start to the IMSA Prototype Challenge season. Driving the No. 22 TOP1 Oil car, Brian was reliable and fast in the highly competitive MPC field.
“The car was great right off the trailer,” said Brian. “It continued to get better every session. In fact, our fastest lap topped the pole time from 2016. You really have to fight for track position with these cars. I got ‘punted’ in round one and had to fight my way back. So I was pretty pleased to finish 4th. The car was great in the second race. I was hoping to chase down the leader after the last restart, but just ran out of time. I’m pleased with second, though.”
“The field is really competitive this season,” added Brian. “Hopefully, we’ll build off the strong results we enjoyed here at Sebring and be in the running for the Championship.”
Brian’s No. 22 car will carry a new red livery this season emphasizing his continued partnership with TOP1 Oil.
This year, the IMSA Prototype Challenge Presented by Mazda enters its 12th season as a genuine training ground for Prototype drivers and teams, much like the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge is an excellent steppingstone to the IMSA WeatherTech GT Le Mans and GT Daytona classes.
The season consists of 13 rounds, ending at Road Atlanta on the Petit Le Mans weekend, Oct. 4-7. Nine of the 13 rounds on the 2017 schedule will take place during WeatherTech Championship weekends, further adding to the exposure for the competitors.
The Sebring races will be televised on FOX Sports 2, April 6th

BAR1 Motorsports does well at 12 hours of Sebring finishing 3rd & 4th

BAR1 Motorsports Finishes 3rd & 4th in Class at Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring
Completing one revolution of the clock is no easy task on the legendary Sebring International Raceway. Known as one of the most challenging events in sports car racing, BAR1 motorsports completed the 65th running of the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh from Florida  endurance race, bringing two cars to the checkered flag in third and fourth respectively.
Piloting the No. 20 Gas Monkey Energy Drink / Southwest Funding prototype was Buddy Rice, Don Yount, Mark Kvamme and Daniel Burkett. In the No. 26 Southwest Realty Advisors / Merchant Services Prototype, it was Gustavo Yacaman, Marc Drumwright, Chapman Ducote and Colin Thompson. Yacaman turned in the fastest time of the weekend in the fourth round of practice. He was quickest again in qualifying, putting the 26 car on the pole.
But, Sebring does not play favorites. Being the fastest doesn’t always get rewarded. The 3.74 mile track is tough on both car and driver alike. The 12 hours of Sebring requires speed, reliability and most of all, patience. An impatient driver will most surely pay a penalty.
By the half way point in the race, after suffering contact with an overaggressive GTLM car, the No. 20 team found themselves behind the wall. After several trips in and out of the pits, the car managed to continue and complete the race, but the balance was just never there.
The No. 26, on the other hand, experienced a good clean race. The team ran consistent and brought the car home on the podium.
“Sebring always plays out as an emotional roller coaster,” said team owner, Brian Alder. “You work hard, you put out your best and you play the cards you’re dealt. If you begin to get the feeling you’ve got things under control, you’re probably about to become the biggest fool on pit lane. If  you take the checkers and make your way to the podium, only then can you relax… of course, that’s assuming you get through tech. But seriously, every cliche` you’ve ever heard about racing and getting to victory lane, all hold true for Sebring. It’s why you keep trying.”
BAR1 moves on to the Circuit of the Americas, home track to Don Yount and the No. 20 Gas Monkey Energy Drink and Southwest Funding team, and Marc Drumwright with the No. 26 Southwest Realty Advisors team. Teams take to the track Thursday, May 4 and race on Saturday, May 6.

Tomy Drissi getting ready for Trans Am West Championships starting March 26

 

With the first round of the 2017 Trans Am West Championship presented by Pirelli scheduled to kick off at Willow Springs on March 26, Tomy Drissi will campaign the No. 8 Ghost in the Shell, Tony Ave Racing prepared Corvette. The southern California road course will feature an exciting weekend of Trans Am racing and vintage SVRA cars in high powered mix of vintage and modern motor racing.

After a nearly decade long absence, the iconic rumble of Trans Am engines makes its long-awaited return to the West Coast.  A stand-alone competition, the Trans Am West Coast Championship will have its own points championship and will be independent of the Trans Am Championship—which is held primarily on tracks throughout the East Coast, Midwest and South.  With the addition of a West Coast Championship, Trans Am aims to regenerate a historically vibrant competitor community on both professional and SCCA Club levels.

Fresh off his second place finish at the series season opener in Sebring, Tomy is excited to continue the great start to his season. As far as taking TransAm back out west, well that’s just a bonus.
“I’m excited to be racing TransAm again,” said Tomy. “But coming out west… driving TransAm out west… that’s just too cool. Our weekend in Sebring reminded me of how much fun TransAm cars are, and when they told me about the TransAm West Championship, it was a no-brainer. It was like the black jack dealer dealing 11, you double down.”
“I love Willow Springs,” added Tomy. “I was racing here back in the 90’s …some great vintage races with great cars, great friends…  just so many memories. Bill Huth and his family always treated me so well… they are huge supporters of mine, so this place is pretty special.”

Trans Am will partner in the endeavor with the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA), as it does for many of its events in the Trans Am Championship.  The Series will continue with the format of 100-mile sprint races and will enforce a modified version of the 2016 Trans Am rulebook while staffing the events with core members of the Trans Am Series staff, including the Series’ Technical Director and Chief Steward.

No stranger to vintage racing, Tomy was recently named VARA’s fist Hall of Fame inductee.

“I’m really looking forward to catching up with the SVRA and VARA folks,” added Tomy. “There are a lot of good people involved and a lot of really cool cars. VARA recently honored me as their first inductee to the VARA Hall of Fame… that completely blew me away. This is going to be a fun weekend.”
Tomy was also honored by TransAm at Sebring International Raceway in recognition of a milestone in his career, his 100th TransAm career start. Tomy ran  his first TransAm race at Long Beach in 1999, driving a Ford Mustang Cobra. Drissi was the Top Rookie of the race. Exactly one year later, Tomy tore up the streets of Long Beach taking his first TransAm win, again in a Ford Mustang. He has since gone on to take three wins, 29 top-5s and 60 top-10s… an amazing tribute to Tomy’s consistency. In 2009, Tomy was crowned TransAm Champion.
Tomy’s No. 8 Ave Racing Corvette will feature the livery of Ghost in the Shell, an upcoming American science fiction action film directed by Rupert Sanders and written by Jamie Moss and Ehren Kruger, based on the Japanese manga of the same name by Masamune Shirow. Sanders dedicated the film to Buried director Rodrigo Cortés. The film stars Scarlett Johansson, Michael Pitt, Pilou Asbæk, Chin Han and Juliette Binoche. It will be released on March 31, 2017, in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D.
Located about an hour north of Los Angeles, Willow Springs International Raceway is a super-fast 2.5-mile / nine-turn road racing circuit, patterned after the great courses and road racing traditions of Europe. The course is unchanged from its original 1953 configuration. With its substantial elevation changes and high average speeds, Willow Springs is one of the fastest and most challenging tracks in the country. Also known as the Fastest Road in the West, this track is one of the safest road courses in the world, despite its high velocities. Cornering speeds on this track range from about 70 mph to over 170 mph, with straightaway speeds nearing 200 mph possible with fastest cars and motorcycles.

“The West Coast has always been core to the spirit of Trans Am,” said John Clagett, President of The Trans Am Race Company.  “Some of the greatest races in Trans Am history took place on the West Coast, and some of our greatest talents called it home.  From 1996 to 2005 nearly a quarter of all Trans Am events were held in the West, so many of our competitors and race shops were based there—the region is engrained in our history.  The Trans Am West Coast Championship is the first of many steps towards rebuilding that core competitor base and making Trans Am a national brand for our stakeholders, drivers and fans.”

“The timing is just right for Trans Am,” said Clagett.  “The Trans Am Championship is stable and continuing to grow as we bring in additional marketing partners for 2017.  Our relationship with SVRA has presented us with the opportunity to expand westward with minimal risk while providing the vital components for success, quality venues and competition platforms, while we work to rebuild Trans Am’s presence in a region it has historically called home.”

Road Racing Drivers Club to honor Emerson Fittipaldi on April 6

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
American Honda Supports RRDC Evening with
Emerson Fittipaldi in Long Beach
HILLIARD, Ohio (March 23, 2017) – American Honda Motor Co., Inc., will support the RRDC Evening with Emerson Fittipaldi Presented by Firestone by hosting the cocktail reception on April 6 at the Road Racing Drivers Club’s ninth annual West Coast banquet. Honda returns for the eighth consecutive year to support the legends dinner, which will be held prior to the 43rd Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach (Calif.).

“American Honda is once again pleased to support the Road Racing Drivers Club in its salute to Emerson Fittipaldi,” said John Mendel, Executive Vice President, Automobile Division, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “His outstanding career in both Formula One and Indy car competition, including two world championships and a pair of Indy 500 triumphs, demonstrated his talent and versatility throughout the 1970s, ’80s and into the ’90s.  He remains a true legend in our sport.”

“The members of the RRDC are honored to have American Honda return for the eighth straight year to host the reception at this year’s RRDC Evening with Emerson Fittipaldi,” said RRDC President Bobby Rahal. “Honda’s presence and record in North American racing competition is remarkable, and we’re proud to have Honda and Honda Performance Development join us in celebrating Emerson’s unparalleled contributions to the sport.”

Fittipaldi, born in Brazil, made his racing debut for Team Lotus at the 1970 British Grand Prix. He went on to win the 1972 World Drivers’ Championship at the age of 25, which at the time made him the youngest F1 world champion. He held that record for 33 years.

After moving to McLaren in 1974 he won the title once again. He soon left the championship-winning McLaren team to drive a brand new – and totally unproven – F1 car, built in his homeland of Brazil by his brother Wilson and funded by the Brazilian sugar and ethanol giant, Copersucar.

The project proved challenging and, in 1980, he reluctantly announced his retirement from racing at age 33.

Four years later he made a comeback at the 1984 IMSA Miami Grand Prix. A move into IndyCar racing followed, and by the end of 1984 he was driving for Ueal Eugene “Pat” Patrick, winning the 1989 Indy 500 in a dramatic duel with Al Unser Jr., and claiming the IndyCar championship. Then it was on to Marlboro Team Penske, with whom he won another Indy 500 at the age of 46, making him the third oldest 500 winner ever, behind only Al and Bobby Unser.

The dinner’s proceeds will help support the RRDC’s young driver initiatives, including its groundbreaking www.SAFEisFAST.com presented by Honda program and the Team USA Scholarship, which the RRDC has backed since 1997. Previous banquets have honored Dan Gurney, Parnelli Jones, Roger Penske, Jim Hall, Brian Redman, Mario Andretti, Bobby Unser and George Follmer, drawing fans and luminaries from all forms of motorsports.

The RRDC Evening with Emerson Fittipaldi Presented by Firestone will be held on Thursday, April 6, at the Hilton Hotel, 701 West Ocean Blvd, Long Beach, Calif., with cocktails at 6 p.m., and dinner at 7:15 p.m. Tickets are $200 per person ($175 for RRDC members) if purchased in advance, and space is limited. This event is expected to sell out quickly. All are welcome and early reservations are recommended. Please contact Jeremy Shaw at rrdc2@cox.net.
