Hayner to campaign team's primary car in the 2002 Trans-Am Series
DETROIT Jan. 25, 2002 - Stu Hayner will drive for Revolution Motorsports in the 2002 Trans-Am Series for the BF Goodrich Tires Cup.
Revolution Motorsports, in association with Trenton Forging, will campaign two 2002 Chevrolet Corvettes in the 2002 Trans-Am Championship, starting with the Grand Prix of Miami on April 6, 2002.
"This is a great ride," said Hayner. "After spending time with Don Sak and key players on the team, I truly believe Revolution Motorsports will be a force to be reckoned with in this year's Trans-Am Series. The team is well funded, well equipped and staffed with talented enthusiastic people. I feel our chances are great for a TA Championship!"
Stu has enjoyed a winning reputation in the SCCA Trans-Am Series. By winning the Corvette Challenge Championship and the SCCA Endurance Championship the same year, Hayner has the distinction of being the first driver to win races in two different series, in two different type racecars, in two different countries, within a single 24-hour period.
In 1990, Stu set three World Land Speed Records, averaging speeds of 282.8 kph for 5,000 km, 173.8 mph over 24 hours, and 175.9 mph for 5,000 miles in a ZR-1 Corvette as co-driver of Tommy Morrison's Corvette program. Hayner competed in IMSA GTU and won at Mid-Ohio that same year.
In addition to his driving talents, Hayner is a highly regarded professional spokesperson for companies such as General Motors, Ford, Lexus, Jaguar, BMW and others.
Revolution Motorsports will compete as part of the 12-race Trans-Am Series for the BF Goodrich Tires Cup. All events will be televised nationally on CBS and the Speed Channel (formerly Speedvision). The Trans-Am Series is the oldest form of American sports car racing. You can find out more at www.trans-amseries.com.
