Acura TSX Receives Competition Adjustment Prior To Road America

ELKHART Lake, Wis. (Aug. 17, 2006) -- SCCA Pro Racing announced today a competition adjustment for the Acura TSX in SPEED Touring Car competition, effective this weekend at Road America.

The TSX will have 50lbs added to its base weight, bringing it from 2650 to 2700lbs, and now has a maximum rear weight distribution of 40 percent, down from 42 percent.

"The SPEED Touring Cars are very close, as you can see when you look at lap times," SCCA Pro Racing Senior Technical and Race Operations Director Harry Turner said. "However, data pulled from the TSX shows an advantage in certain types of corners that should be balanced by this adjustment. This is really some fine-tuning that is going on based on this season's data.

"As with any adjustment, our goal is to have these cars still in contention to compete up front with the other cars. We maintain our belief that these cars, as well as those adjusted on the GT side, still have a strong chance to contend for race wins and podium finishes with the other models in the series."

Practice for this weekend's Round Seven races, part of the Generac 500 at Road America weekend, begins Friday. Check www.world-challenge.com for a weekend schedule and further information.
