Horton Motorsports / Landsystems Racing to Campaign Dodge Viper in SPEED World Challenge GT Championship
MURRIETA, Calif. (April 7, 2008) - Horton Motorsports has announced that they will support driver Stu Frederick, in the 2008 SCCA Pro Racing SPEED World Challenge GT Championship.
Currently, the team is campaigning a full-season SCCA SPEED Touring Car effort with driver Patrick Lindsey. "Adding Stu to our team now gives us solid entries in both Touring and GT," states Horton. "Stu is a very complete and impressive driver. We all expect to be sharing in some great results this season."
Frederick, of Del Mar, Calif., begins his season with his No. 57 Dodge Viper Comp Coupe at this year's Long Beach Grand Prix scheduled for Sunday, April 20. Meissner Jacquet Commercial Real Estate Management will be on board as the car's sponsor for the event. The team has also committed to run at the 2008 Utah Grand Prix at Miller Motorsports Park in May, then plans to run an abbreviated schedule throughout the remainder of the season.
Horton Motorsports has supported Frederick's racing efforts over the past several years including his 2006 SPEED GT debut at a rain soaked Mosport in Ontario, Canada. Frederick finished 18th out of 34 entries.
"It is great to have the strength of a team like Horton Motorsports, and sponsors like Meissner Jacquet behind me this year." Frederick said. "We hope to get some quick testing in with the new car before hitting the streets of Long Beach. They have a bunch of walls up there, don't they? I am thrilled to be racing again in such a competitive and exciting series like SCCA SPEED World Challenge GT. To compete against some of the best road racers in the world is beyond description."
SCCA SPEED GT at Long Beach Presented by Applied Computer Solutions will take place April 17 -- 19. The race will air on SPEED Wednesday, April 30, at noon (EST).
