Charlie Webster Brings Home-Track Advantage To American GT Challenge Mosport Event

Wilton, CT.- Charlie Webster [#95 C.J. Webster of Canada LTD. Corvette] will continue the tradition of beginning his racing season at the Victoria Day American GT Challenge event at Mosport May 23rd. Webster comes to AGT with years of local knowledge of the Mosport circuit.

"The Victoria Day weekend, which celebrates Queen Victoria's birthday, has been an event that I have been going to for more years than I care to remember," commented Charlie.." It is usually our first race of the year."

For Webster, Mosport provides an opportunity to compete at home while creating a weekend escape with family and friends.

"Mosport is our home track and a wonderful facility for a weekend away. A lot of my friends and family come out, so the weekend is both the cruncher of having to get the car ready, and a holiday away with my family," said Webster.

The AGT event at Mosport will mark Charlie's debut into the series. Webster feels the AGT organizers are headed in the right direction with the series.

"Based on the information I've received recently, there could be a formidable field of cars-- many running at serious lap speed. This makes for a lot of fast action. I put my faith in crew chief Mark to help sort out the right combination," Webster said.

"The AGT format looks like a lot of fun and allows for a different combination of weight, engine and tires so there will be a learning curve for all of us as well, I hope this style of racing is on the upswing. These cars are fun to drive, Mosport is a cool track, and the AGT rocks, so this thing ought to be awesome!" concluded Charlie.

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. For more information visit www.americangt.com.

The American GT Challenge next stop is at Mosport International Raceway May 23rd, in Bowmanville, Ontario Canada.
