Kinetic Motorsports is Pleased to Welcome Dino Steiner to the Team
Buford, Ga. - Kinetic Speed Shop has signed Dino Steiner for the 2007 IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge presented by Michelin. Dino will again pilot his Steiner Common Rail Compression Nuts 997 in the IMSA Cup but this time prepared by Kinetic Speed Shop located in Buford, Ga. Kinetic co-owner Russell Smith, who has competed in the series for two years, will make his third consecutive season start with the opening race at Sebring International Raceway in conjunction with the world famous 12 Hours of Sebring.
"I am looking forward to joining Kinetics for the 2007 season," said Steiner. "They are definitely one of the most professional and presentable teams in the paddock and hopefully will help me go one better in next years championship."
Flying in from Germany for each race, Steiner will compete in his second season in the IMSA Cup Challenge. Steiner finished the 2006 Championship in second place in the standings just two points behind champion Nathan Swartzbaugh. Out of the seven series races, Steiner never finished out of the top-five overall and had a best finish of second place overall at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course this season.
"I am proud to be able to call Dino my teammate," said Smith. "Dino is a formidable competitor who will be a positive addition to our racing efforts. He has exhibited excellent skills behind the wheel of his Porsche 997 as evident from his impressive finish this year in the IMSA Cup points. With Kinetic, I am confident that Dino will have another great season and have fun and develop further as a driver. I am extremely eager to hit the track again next season with my new teammate."
