Team looks to build on Mosport success!

Detroit - May 22, 2002 - This week the Trans-Am Series for the BFGoodrich Tires Cup returns to Lime Rock for the Mohegan Sun Presents Lime Rock Park Grand Prix on May 24-27.The race will air live, May 27 on SPEED Channel at 3pm ET.

Returning to the track where he enjoyed his career best finish, Don Sak is very upbeat about the team's chances at this beautiful facility. "This is a great track," said Don. Both the team and I feel very good coming here after our weekend in Mosport. It wasn't a perfect outing, but we learned, we grew, and most important, we had fun. I'm real proud of everyone's effort."

Don will climb back in the #10 Revolution Motorsports Corvette after giving the controls to his son, Bobby Sak, last week in Mosport.

Stu Hayner, driver of the #02 Trenton Forging/Revolution Motorsports Corvette, shared Sak's optimism. "Mosport was very important to us all," he said. "We learned a great deal about the cars and ourselves. It was good for Shane and his crewmembers to see their hard work pay off. We were fast, reliable and the cars handled great. We know what we have to do and we know we have the talent on the team to get the job done. This is great.... this is fun!"

"I'm excited about Lime Rock," Hayner continued. "We saw how the car worked in traffic in our run at Mosport. Lime Rock Park is a short track... it will really show what the Corvette can do. The car has excellent down force and works real well in traffic. The Corvette will be good here.

"Of course," he added, "everyone will be keeping an eye on Butch Leitzinger and current points leader, Boris Said. They have both logged quite a few laps at Lime Rock. We'll be ready, though!"

In association with Trenton Forging, Revolution Motorsports will campaign two 2002 Chevrolet Corvettes in this weekend's Mohegan Sun Casino Lime Rock Park Grand Prix at Lime Rock and the duration of the 2002 Trans-Am Series for the BF Goodrich Tires Cup.

Revolution Motorsports will compete as part of the Trans-Am Series for the BF Goodrich Cup. All events are nationally televised on CBS and Speed channel (formerly Speedvision). The Trans-Am Series is the oldest form of American sports car racing. You can find out more at www.trans-amseries.com.
