Bowmansville, Ont - May 18, 2002 - Cool temperatures greeted competitors this morning as they took to the track for qualifying. Unfortunately, an on track incident caused the session to be shortened. In the end, Bobby Sak in the #10 car was sitting 6th and Stu Hayner in the Trenton Forging #02 car was in 9th.
Hayner was very pleased with #10 car. "I didn't really let it out," said Stu. "There is a lot more car there than the session showed. After yesterday's steering problem, I felt a bit tentative about just throwing the car around. But I'm pleased. Right now, it's a great car. I can live with starting in 9th knowing I have a strong car under me."
However, Bobby's session was not over when he left the track. Once back in the paddock, the crew reported issues forcing a decision to change the #10 car's motor. This decision would push Bobby to the back of the pack. Ultimately, it was the right decision.
In the late afternoon session, the crew had Bobby's #10 Revolution Motorsports Corvette back on the track and he picked up right where he left off. "It might even be faster than the other motor," said Bobby. Unfortunately, a broken linkage shortened the session. He'll start at the back... albeit, with a strong race car.
Hayner's late day practice proved Stu's earlier beliefs to be right. "The Trenton Forging/Revolution Motorsports Corvette is very quick and very comfortable," Stu said. "We'll be able to run up front... we'll just need to be patient." Stu will start 7th for Sunday's main event.
In association with Trenton Forging, Revolution Motorsports will campaign two 2002 Chevrolet Corvettes in this weekend's Victoria Day Trans Am Weekend at Mosport and the duration of the 2002 Trans-Am Series for the BF Goodrich Tires Cup.
California native, Stu Hayner will drive the #02 car for Trenton Forging and Bobby Sak will drive the #10 car featuring the picture of a Canadian child, Gavin Hollett in conjunction with the Missing Children Society of Canada.
The Victoria Day Trans-Am Series Race will air live Sunday May 19, on Speed channel (formerly Speedvision).
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.
