i-MOTO Acura Back to the Top at Iowa with a 2nd Place and 6th Place Finish:
NEWTON, Iowa -- Team i-MOTO rebounds from a "crash filled" Homestead race with a dominating performance at the inaugural Iowa Speedway 200, finishing 2nd and 6th. In qualifying the i-MOTO team drivers Nick Wittmer and Kuno Wittmer (piloting the #31 Acura TSX) rocketed to the team's first pole position, with World Challenge veteran Christian Miller and Glenn Bocchino close behind (in the #32 Acura TSX sister car) taking the second row with position 4th. Nick Wittmer and Kuno Wittmer (#31) and Christian Miller and Glenn Bocchino (#32) dominated the field, with Nick Wittmer leading every lap of the race and Christian Miller battling for the second and third positions with the Georgia Bay Scada-Pack Chevy Cobalt of Jamie Holtom and Eric Curren. Unfortunately, the both team cars were forced to pit under green flag conditions, wiping out the dominate lead. Once again, the i-MOTO race crew, headed by crew chief Tom Badger, made two flawless pit stops, keeping the team cars within striking distance of the leaders. As the clock ran out for the team cars, the #31 car still managed a 2nd place podium missing a win by fractions of a second and the #32 car finishing strong 6th place.
After three rounds of the Koni Challenge series, i-MOTO team drivers, Nick Wittmer is 3rd , Glenn Bocchino is 5th , Kuno Wittmer is 6th , Roger Foo 15th and Christian Miller is 16th in the drivers points standings.
The i-MOTO Racing team will continue the momentum at the US Sportscar Invitational at Laguna Seca on May 19th 2007.
