San Juan PR -- Oct. 24, 2003 -- After two practice sessions at the 2003 Trans-Am Series Motorock Tour for the BFGoodrich Cup Puerto Rico Grand Prix, Bobby Sak is right on schedule with the #10 Revolution Motorsports Corvette. Using the morning session to feel out the track, Bobby dropped the hammer in round two with a 1:06.608. I

"This is exactly the car I wanted for this race," commented Bobby. "The crew was spot on. The handling was great and the gearing was just about right. The track was very deceiving-- I think we all thought we'd see much higher speeds-- but I think we're going to have to see the bite come up before that will happen. Either way, my car is good."

"This has been a great week so far," Sak added. First time events are usually a handful for everyone, so I can only imagine what Jorge Diaz Sr. is going through. But, so far, things are running on time and pretty smooth. The people are extremely courteous and helpful. And, the local traffic is pretty good practice!!!"

Sak trails local favorite, Jorge Diaz Jr. by 27 points in the chase for the Rookie of the Year title. Jorge will need to finish 17th or better to clinch it.

Don Sak [#2 Revolution Motorsports Corvette] suffered cylinder failure in the early going of the first round practice.

"It's always a bit unnerving to have the first session go wrong," commented Don. "I was taking it easy trying to just shake things down and get to know the track. Unfortunately the engine decided to hiccup and our session was cut short."

"The second session was good," Sak continued. "However, now I'm playing catch-up trying to get the things done that I wanted to do in the first session. I like to find my brake points and just genuinely find a point where I'm comfortable in the car. We were 12th fastest in the second round and I'm confident we can get more out of it for qualifying. We're in good shape."

Revolution Motorsports will field the #2 and #10 Revolution Motorsports Corvettes as part of the Grand Prix of Puerto Rico. The final event of the year is taking place in Puerto Rico October 26-28. The will be race will be broadcast live at 1pm EST on SPEED.
