Hayner finishes fourth at New England Grand Prix
Lakeville, Conn -- July 2, 2005 After starting 6th for the SPEED World Challenge New England GT Grand Prix, Stu Hayner finished fourth in the #5 GMAC Commercial Finance / Trenton Forging GTO. The SPEED World Challenge Series is running as part of the ALMS New England Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park, in Connecticut. His fourth place finish backs up the teams fifth place finish at last weeks Grand Prix of Cleveland. Hayner was extremely pleased with the car and the day's results.
"That was fun," Hayner exclaimed. "I don't remember the last time I drove a car that felt and handled that well. I could pretty much go wherever I needed. For a while there I was running with Max (Papis), I really felt I could get around him. I'd catch him at the base of the Downhill Turn (#10) but we're still a bit down on power-- I just didn't have enough to get after him on the front straight."
"I can't get over how well the development of our 2005 program has come along," Hayner continued. "It's a great feeling for everyone on the team when you can see the effort and hard work paying off week after week. We've got a "never-say-die" bunch at Autosport Development and I'm proud to be associated with them all."
The SCCA Pro Racing SPEED World Challenge races will air Sunday, July 3rd at 4pm followed by the GT race at 5pm, both on SPEED.
The series will move on to Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California, July 15-17 with the American Le Mans Series.
