Pro Motor Engineering To Certify Daytona Prototypes Engines
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 12, 2002) -- Grand American Road Racing President Roger Edmondson announced today that Pro Motor Engineering in Mooresville, N.C., will work with the sanctioning body's staff to approve engines for competition in the Daytona Prototypes championship.
"When we introduced the Daytona Prototypes championship we listed engines from a variety of automobile manufacturers that we felt would fit the performance goals we had set for the new cars," Edmondson stated. "What was left for us to do was to establish the specific regulations for approved engines so we can maintain a competitive field in the series. With the help of Pro Motor Engineering's President Peter Guild and his staff, we now have the mechanism in place to evaluate and certify engines."
According to Edmondson, car builders, engine manufacturers or teams requesting approval of a particular engine will have to provide an engine to Pro Motor Engineering for testing. Guild and his staff will test each engine and determine which performance enhancements will or will not be allowed for that model. Once an engine has been tested and accepted, specification sheets will be prepared for that engine which will detail the configuration that has been approved for the engine.
"Grand American contacted me and said they wanted to establish a reliable method for testing and verifying engines," Guild added. "Our shop is equipped with the necessary equipment and experienced staff to analyze each engine's performance and to catalog the specific components and tuning options that should be allowed to deliver the right combination of performance and reliability."
Companies and individuals wishing to submit an engine for testing should contact Guild at (704) 664-6800 or email@example.com for further information.
