SEAN RAYHALL TESTS AT ROAD ATLANTA
(Atlanta, GA - Feb 17, 2009) Young 13 year old professional open-wheel race car driver Sean Rayhall (from Winston, GA) will be testing at the famous Road Atlanta road course this week on February 19th with Comprent Motorsports (from Athens, GA) in a Formula Enterprise class race car. "I can't wait to work with Kevin Kloeper and Comprent Motorsports again" mentioned Rayhall. "The last time I tested a car with them, it was phenomenal, and I couldn't have asked for any more from the team."
Rayhall is preparing for the 2009 Skip Barber (open-wheel) National Championship after winning 9 of 12 Skip Barber Regional races last year on the way to winning the 2008 Skip Barber Southeastern Region Championship, making Rayhall the youngest ever open wheel Champion in North America. Sean Rayhall is hoping to follow up his brief 4-race debut in the Skip Barber National series in 2008, where he became the youngest open-wheel National event race winner, when he won the New Jersey race at the age of only 13. With strong hopes for more race wins in 2009 and the opportunity to win the National Championship at the age of 14, Rayhall's goal is to be the youngest driver to ever win an open wheel "National" Championship in North America.
Rayhall also commented that "Road Atlanta is not only my home race track, but it's also my favorite, I'm really looking forward to getting in the car this week." Rayhall has been testing often over the winter off-season months in preparation for the 2009 championship season, and will follow the Road Atlanta test this week with additional outings at Sebring and Talladega race tracks prior to the Skip Barber National Championship season opener on March 17th at Sebring raceway in Florida.
