Stu Hayner looks to reap benefits of "driver's" track.
Detroit -- May 14, 2003 -- Stu Hayner and the #2 Trenton Forging / GMAC Commercial Finance Corvette for Revolution Motorsports will head to Mosport with high hopes of kicking the season in gear. Hayner feels this is the perfect track to put the team back on pace for the 2003 Championship drive in the Trans-Am Series for the BFGoodrich Tires Cup.
"Mosport is a driver's track," said Hayner. "If you have the nerve you can make up a lot of time here. It's a fast track with a couple of sections that pay big dividends. If you can hold on and like that sort of thing, it's a ball. If you're faint of heart-- you're going to be backing up."
"We ran really well here last year, Hayner continued. Even though a stop and go penalty put us back a bit, we were very fast."
Hayner is currently tied for 5th in the championship points. While that is ahead of last year's pace, the team is well aware of the challenge ahead of them.
"We haven't been able to find the momentum we had the last half of the season in 2002," Hayner remarked. "We've been chasing some odd problems and we're pretty confident we've beat them."
"Obviously, we've got our hands full with the Jaguars this year," commented Hayner. "The first two races may have favored their aero package, so we're hoping the Corvette can draw on its low drag on the high speed sections here. The bottom line is, we've got to pick up ground here and next week in Lime Rock. Hopefully, the car is back on pace and we can get a true picture of what we're dealing with in the aero department."
The Mosport event runs May 18th in Bowmanville Ontario, just outside Toronto. The Trans-Am Series is the feature race on the program that also features the SPEED World Challenge Series. The Trans-Am race at Mosport will air tape delayed on SPEED Channel May 25th providing fans with a weekend double header as the Lime Rock Park Trans-Am race will air live on May 26th.
