Trois Rivieres, QUE-- (16 August, 2008)--When it comes to beating the competition, having one bullet can be good, but two is always better.

Adam Burrows and Trevor Hopwood have hit a good rhythm in their young KONI Challenge careers, with Burrows slotting in to handle the qualifying and race starting duties, with Hopwood being the strong closer.

That mix has netted countless podiums, one victory and one championship in just a season and a half of competition. But with two bullet-fast racers sharing the No. 76 Fischer Skis Compass360 Racing Acura TSX, the duo decided to mix it up for this Saturday's Grand Prix de Trois Rivieres as Hopwood took the controls for the qualifying session.

Despite the change, the results were familiar, as the No. 76 Fischer Skis Compass360 Racing Acura TSX will once again start on the front row after Hopwood posted a 1:14.725-second lap to score second on the grid for Saturday's one hour and forty-five minute street fight in Quebec.

"The car was really hooked up and I was able to set my fastest time later in the session, so that's really encouraging for the race this afternoon," said Hopwood. "I don't have much experience qualifying in KONI, but it was a fun session. Obviously when the car is this good, it's always fun. The Compass guys did a great job once again. We are going to practice our driver changes to get used to me getting out, and Adam getting in, but other than that, our plan is just the same--save the car for later in the race and get back on the podium."
