AGT Ready to Launch Round One of the 2004 Challenge

Wilton, CT- With the entry forms submitted, and the teams ready to race, GM products dominate the early entries for the inaugural American GT race at Carolina Motorsports Park in Kershaw, South Carolina. The inaugural event will pit teams from various countries in a fender to fender battle to establish an early points lead to determine the 2004 American GT Team, Driver and Constructor Championship.

Among the drivers entered for round one of the Challenge include Puerto Rican competitor Edison Lluch in the Don Q Rum Corvette, Frank Cioppettini with the number 6 Clover Enterprises LP Camaro, long time road racing veteran Bruce Nesbitt with the DuPont Teflon® Mustang, local drivers including Bob Humphreys(Delta Apparel Camaro) and John Finger(John Finger Mazda) Mustang and many others looking to take home the trophy.

Carolina Motorsports Park is a great track and well run facility, surrounded by beautiful South Carolina pines. It combines a wide range of challenging aspects such as high speed corners, varying radius turns, and terrific straights with an interesting technical section to provide varying demands on competitor skills.

Will the locals who compete here frequently have an edge? Will Ford products overcome the minority count? Will the foreign competitors dominate? All these questions will be answered the afternoon of April 11th as The American GT Challenge takes to the track to "lay some smack". Just remember: The American GT Challenge, because racing is serious fun.

Guests are welcome to join the teams to celebrate Easter weekend by observing practice, making personal contact with team members, joining us for a Saturday evening BBQ, Sunday morning Easter Service and of course qualifying and the race.

The American GT Challenge will open its inaugural season at South Carolina Motorsports Park in Kershaw, South Carolina April 10 through 11th. The American GT Challenge uses purpose built tube frame chassis cars, power by a V-8 & V-6 engine, with composite bodies, replicating series produced American touring or grand touring cars competing exclusively on Goodyear Racing Tires.
