Detroit - March 3, 2004 -- Autosport Development announced today they will partner with GMAC Commercial Finance as co-sponsor on the #5 GMAC Commercial Finance / Trenton Forging GTO for the 2004 SPEED World Challenge GT Series and a six-race hospitality program.

"It's an honor to have the prestige of a company like GMAC Commercial Finance in our corner," said Autosport Development driver, Stu Hayner. "This is an important step in the growth of our program. We're really looking forward to showing them the excitement of World Challenge GT racing and demonstrating how we can help them grow their business. This is great for Autosport Development and it's great for the SPEED World Challenge GT Series. We're going to work hard to make it great for GMAC Commercial Finance."

GMAC Commercial Finance, considered a leader in its segment of the financial services market, provides accounts receivable management and financing, asset-based lending, equipment finance/leasing, retail financing, structured financing, and supply chain management services to a wide variety of clients in diverse industries. Loan facilities are in the $2 million to $200 million range. With locations in the United States, Canada, Hong Kong and the United Kingdom, the Company is positioned to provide lending services worldwide.

Hayner, after a fourteen-year hiatus from the SPEED World Challenge Series where he previously had two wins, is excited about getting back to the competitiveness of the Series.

"I'm really looking forward to running the SPEED World Challenge Series this year," said Hayner. "The World Challenge Series is without a doubt the best road racing competition in the US. Considering all the options, we felt that this is a great series to grow our new program. The rules appear structured to provide parity and close racing. While I'm confident we will be very competitive, I know we have a lot of work and development to do before we see that first win."

In association with Trenton Forging, Autosport Development will compete as part of the SPEED World Challenge GT Series. Hayner, will debut the Autosport Development #5 GTO GMAC Commercial Finance logo at the Series' Sebring event March 17, 2004.
