Advanced Engineering Technology Conference To Feature Circle Track Racing Engine Technology Theme During PRI Week

LAGUNA BEACH, CALIF. -- As one of the two largest contingents represented, it's little surprise that circle track racers from around the world converge on the PRI Trade Show, but with this year's Advanced Engineering Technology Conference (AETC) presenting Circle Track Racing Engine Technology as its theme, hundreds of race engine builders will converge on Orlando a few days earlier than normal.

The AETC, which will run Dec. 6-8 in the Orange County Convention Center, is held in Orlando prior to the PRI Trade Show each year. It is one of the nation's oldest and most-respected seminars on building race engines.

"The AETC and the PRI Trade Show are a perfect fit," says Steve Lewis, PRI show producer. "Every racer here has just one goal -- go faster and to find the people and products that can make that happen. That's what AETC and PRI are all about -- providing the best information and the latest technology all right there in Orlando over a six-day span."

An impressive list of 13 speakers have been announced to date for this year's conference including Doug Yates (Roush Yates Engines), Andy Randolph (EGR Engines), Gary Stanton (Stanton Racing Engines), Bill Schlieper (Pro Power Racing), Keith Dorton (Automotive Specialists) and Ron Shaver (Shaver Racing Engines. In addition, an Expert AETC Panel Question and Answer session also will take place.

"In here (at the AETC), the truth comes out -- what to do and mostly what not to do so racing engines survive," said Dave Gorman, of Intellitec College in Colorado Springs. "In this day and age, it's not hard to build 1000 horsepower, but what is hard is trying to keep it together."JThe Advanced Engineering Technology Conference0x2122 (AETC0x2122) was originally conceived to provide an independent and unbiased forum for the exchange of the latest engine technology. The AETC0x2122 was started in 1989 and moved to Orlando in 2005 to precede the PRI Show. "We're proud to present the biggest and best trade show of its kind in the world," said Lewis. "But when you add events the caliber of the AETC and the Young Driver's Symposium, it makes Orlando the place to be during PRI Week for everyone involved in the motorsports industry."

The 2010 PRI Trade Show, which will be held Dec. 9-11 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, will feature more than 1,100 motorsports companies and 3,000 exhibits. Nearly 40,000 racing business people from all 50 states, and 65 countries, are expected to attend. For more information, go to www.performanceracing.com/tradeshow. Or, call 949/499-5413.
