Burrows and Hopwood Ready for Saturday Showdown at Mosport

Bowmanville, Ontario (13 June, 2008)--Adam Burrows will start the No. 74 Fischer Skis/Compass360 Racing Acura TSX from eighth on the ST Class grid after posting a fast lap time of 1:35.352-seconds at Mosport International Raceway on Friday afternoon. Despite fighting with a loose-handling car and some slower traffic, Burrows was able to take a flyer quick enough to be within one second of the pole-winning time.

Burrows will open Saturday's two and a half-hour race before turning the Compass360 Acura entry over to teammate Trevor Hopwood, who will look to return the duo to the KONI Challenge podium as they defend their 2007 ST Championship.

The race will be a busy one, with the 2.459-mile circuit hosting nearly seventy cars as both the GS and ST Classes will race simultaneously starting with Saturday's 1:00 PM race green flag.

"The car was as loose as it's been all weekend, but I just held on and got what I could out of it," said Burrows. "We should be fine for the race, but I was a little frustrated with that session because I had two laps that were much faster, but a guy had a flat on one of my laps and on my last lap the guy ahead decided he ws done for the session and just slowed down. But we had no problem moving up at Lime Rock Park so hopefully that is the case again tomorrow. The Compass360 guys have been doing a great job this weekend and we'd really like to get a good finish for them here in their home race."
