Brian Redman joins HMSA team
December 10, 2004, Montrose CA. The Historic Motor Sports Association (HMSA) today announced that racing champion Brian Redman has joined HMSA as the Director of Competition. In addition, HMSA will become the sanctioning body for Mr. Redman's Targa 66 club and Intercontinental Events, Inc. races including the Jefferson 500 at Summit Point Raceway May 20th--22nd . Redman brings a world of knowledge and decades of experience in racing that the participants of HMSA events can now enjoy.
Over the last few years events such as the Porsche Rennsport Reunion and the Jefferson 500 staged by Mr. Redman's company, Intercontinental Events, Inc. and the Targa 66 club, have grown to become some of the most anticipated and respected events on the historic racing calendar. As a result of this exceptional growth, Redman began looking for a group that not only had the experience to help facilitate his events but also more importantly shared his philosophy of historic racing. Redman found that HMSA's emphasis on preserving the history of the sport as opposed to encouraging on-track competition and their experience in sanctioning worldclass events such as the Monterey Historic made them the perfect candidate.
The Targa 66 club events and the other races organized by Intercontinental Events, Inc. will continue with the ideology that Mr. Redman has established. Redman's passion for the sport and the strength of HMSA insures that their combined vision for historic motorsport will continue to grow and prosper.
