    For immediate release –  July 10, 2017

    Racers Edge Motorsports, championship winning race team and the North American Distributor for SIN CARS, announced today it will enter two SIN R1 GT4 machines in the California 8-Hours at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on October 14-15. The event is part of the Intercontinental GT Challenge, organized by the SRO Motorsports Group with assistance for this North American round by the Pirelli World Challenge Series. For driver line-ups, each GT4 entry will be required to have three drivers, with a maximum of one Gold (or Platinum) and a minimum of one Bronze rated driver, allowing for multiple combinations of competitive line-ups. This should be one cool event!

    GT4 class cars are relatively new to North American competition, so many GT4 teams have yet to participate in events this long. None the less, many of the GT4 cars themselves have already been severely tested this way in Europe, as there they routinely enter endurance races of all durations, including 24-hour events. Racers Edge Motorsports has been fielding race cars for over 27 years and has extensive experience in endurance sports car racing, including seven Rolex 24 Hour races at Daytona.

    For the Racers Edge team, the lure of fielding a pair of SIN R1 racers in this inaugural event was really strong. As Team Manager Jon Mirachi explained; “The opportunity to run the SIN R1 GT4 in longer races just has immense appeal for us. The SIN has racked up seven wins in Pirelli World Challenge competition, so it’s proven to be a competitive GT4 machine. Additionally, the cars are over-built and with power steering, ABS and traction control, should be well suited to longer races. Combine our endurance racing background with the success of the SIN in sprint races, and we really look forward to competing in an 8-Hour race at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca!”

    The team is currently seeking funded drivers interested in taking part in this exciting International Event and those interested should contact Eric Burch at the P1 Groupe.

    On January 25, 2017 • By

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 25, 2017– The Rebel Rock Racing team heads to Daytona International Speedway for the first round of the 2017 Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Series (CTSC) season loaded with talent both over the wall and behind the wheel.  Daytona will mark the first occasion the team will take the green flag with three Porsche Cayman Street Tuner (ST) class machines for the inaugural 4-hour endurance event.  Each of those entries will feature star power with drivers that have won the famed Rolex 24 hours of Daytona.  Additionally, the team has added top crew members to each car that hail from some of the top teams in sportscar racing today, with an impressive win list to their collective credit.

    The #6 HPS Jardine/Jarddesign.com entry will have CTSC newcomer Trevor Knight of Windsor, England share driving duties with sportscar veteran Shane Lewis.  The #8 Urban Grid Cayman will feature David Roberts of Los Angeles, CA bringing his winning history over from the Radical series to make his CTSC debut at Daytona with Rolex watch barer, Dion von Moltke, for the season.  The #22 Esmark Steel Group/PPG/Wright Automotive Group entry will strap up-and-coming driver Kris Wright behind the wheel with the third Rolex 24 winner Leh Keen.

    Quotes:

    Tony Jardine, Chairman, HPS Jardine: “We are delighted to support Trevor at such a prestigious event in the US, his enthusiasm and commitment should prove a valuable combination on this tough but famous venue.”

    Shane Lewis: “It’s Daytona!  How could I not be excited to jump in a Porsche at the World Center of Racing!  I’m looking forward to joining my friend Trevor behind the wheel of the Rebel Rock Racing Porsche Cayman.  I think the team assembled a strong crew, and across each of the three cars, think it’s as strong a driving lineup as there is in the ST paddock. I have six wins in the Continental series over the years, including one of those at Daytona, and I’d love to add another win to that list.”

    David Roberts: “Racing at Daytona has always been a dream of mine, I can’t believe it is finally happening! I am extremely happy to be with such a great organization, all the guys at Rebel Rock Racing are fueled with passion and I’m confident in our entire team. I have a lot to learn and I couldn’t be happier with the foundation that is around me. My teammate and co-driver, Dion von Moltke, is a talented driver. I think we make excellent teammates, there is already great chemistry between us just from one test day.

    I am looking forward to a successful year, developing as a person, race car driver, teammate, and bringing in positive vibes along with wins for the Rebel Rock Racing team. I am thankful to Eric Burch of P1 Groupe for setting up the opportunity, I am thankful to Ed Hall for running our program, and of course the team owners Frank DePew and Tom FitzGerald.”

    Dion von Moltke: “I can’t wait to get to Daytona and get to work with Rebel Rock Racing and David!  We had our first test together last week and I was really impressed with the group of guys our team manager, Ed Hall, has been able to put together.  The Continental series has some tough competition and we will really need to bring our best to compete for wins this year, but I’m confident we have the right people in place to get there.

    David came to our test and had the perfect attitude, hopped in the car for the first time and was on pace right away.  I was really impressed with how he carried himself and his abilities in the car.  I think we will work great together, and I can’t wait to see how he progresses in his first pro racing season!  It has been 8 years since I was consistently in the Continental series, and I missed racing there.  Some of my favorite racing memories are still from my time there, I hope we can kick off the year strong and continue to improve as a team throughout the year!”

    Kris Wright: “I’m very excited to be driving with Leh as well as Rebel Rock. I have worked with a few guys on the team in the past and I feel very confident in their ability to execute.”

    Leh Keen: “Really happy to be heading south at the end of January. Excited for the change of pace and new adventure in my career. We had a good test and I got to know Kris well and saw his skill in the car. So really looking forward to getting out there and running bumper to bumper in the ST class especially in a Porsche. I think we will be very strong and looking for a podium or a win for sure.

    The BMW Endurance Challenge at Daytona kicks off with practice on Thursday, January 26th at 9:00 a.m. EST.  The green flag will drop for the start of the race on Friday, January 27th, at 12:15 p.m. EST.  The event will be covered live on IMSA.tv, with tape delayed broadcast on Fox Sports 1 on Saturday, February 11th at 11:30 a.m.

    On September 27, 2016 • By

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 27, 2016 – CRG will roll through the gates this week at Road Atlanta for the final round of the 2016 Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Series season at the Road Atlanta 150.   The team and their drivers Sarah Cattaneo and Owen Trinkler look to end the season on a high note with a strong result at a track both drivers are very familiar with.

    Looking to pick up where they left off just two weeks ago that saw Cattaneo qualify her #44 I Do Borrow/A&C Properties Nissan Altima Coupe on the front row and lead the race prior to turning the car over to Trinkler, who also took the lead before a mechanical issue ended their race prematurely.   The team knows they’ve got the car, crew, and drivers to get the job done as they look to take home their third victory of the season.

    Cattaneo states, “I’m very proud of how our team has done this year.  Our crew works very hard to provide Owen and me a car to compete with, and I know we have the ability to end the season strong.”

    The series race starts leader, Trinkler, mentions, “I’m very pleased with the leap forward that Sarah’s taken this year in her race craft.  She’s one of the top starting drivers in the Street Tuner class this year as she’s shown in both qualifying and races.  The team has done an excellent job of giving both of us a car that we can be both comfortable and competitive with and we’re looking to head into the offseason with some momentum on a track we both are strong at.”

    On September 22, 2016 • By

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 22, 2016– Rebel Rock Racing has been steadily making strides in the second half of the 2016 Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Series season.  The team knows the rewards for all their hard work and continued development as a team are bound to pay dividends.  This past weekend at Circuit of the America’s (COTA) started to show what the team is capable of with their two Street Tuner (ST) class Porsche Caymans.

    Robin Liddell and Theo Bean were quickly up to pace in their #8 Urban Grid Cayman, ending the two practice sessions P2 and P1 respectfully.  While Frank DePew and Sean Rayhall acclimated themselves further in the #7 entry as DePew was making just his second start in the ST class, and Rayhall was making his series debut.

    Bean and DePew would take on qualifying and race start duties for their respective Rebel Rock Racing liveried machines, with Theo setting a time to start the race from the 11th position.  Frank would be one of the first in the ST field to pit for the driver change, with Sean stepping behind the wheel to finish out the race.  A fast pit stop was thwarted by a failed air regulator, forcing Rayhall to enter the fray two laps adrift of the race leaders.  Late race braking issues, due to the extremely high temperatures in Austin forced the #7 back into the pits forcing an early retirement, but with enough laps to still maintain a 19th place result.

    Rayhall states, “It was great to join Rebel Rock this weekend.  We unfortunately didn’t get a chance to finish due to the issue, but hats off to the team for working hard all week.  I’m really looking forward to finishing out the year at Road Atlanta with the team.”

    Meanwhile, in the sister #8, Bean was able to make his way up to 7th during his stint before turning over to Liddell.  Robin was able to take the wheel and started making his way through the field, up to third in the ST class, before a driveshaft failure prematurely ended their run.

    “COTA was an exciting, but ultimately frustrating weekend for us at Rebel Rock as we really showed that we had front running pace.  Having posted the quickest time in final practice before qualifying, we were feeling pretty optimistic about our chances for the race given our strong performance.”  Liddell continues, “Theo had his best qualifying to date despite only managing one lap due to the session being red flagged, whilst most had two laps.  Having started 11th, he moved up into the Top-10, and when I took the car over I felt we could take the fight to the leaders.  Unfortunately, after only a few laps I completely lost drive exiting Turn-1, and realized we had lost a driveshaft.  A disappointing end to a competitive showing, and I really hope we can turn the speed we’ve worked so hard to find into a result at Road Atlanta.”

    Bean also reflected on the race weekend.  “COTA was a bit disappointing considered we had the pace, but a mechanical problem ended our day early.  I’m excited to see how Road Atlanta goes where we’ll be fast if it’s anything like we were this weekend.  Road Atlanta’s my home track, and I’m looking forward to sleeping in my own bed each night following the long days at the circuit.”

    The Circuit of the America’s 150 can be viewed via tape delayed broadcast on Fox Sports 1 on Sunday, September 25th at 5:00 pm EDT.

    On September 21, 2016 • By

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 21, 2016 – The ninth round of a scheduled 10 in the 2016 Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Series got off to a very strong start for the CRG-I Do Borrow team.  Throughout the first two practices team drivers Sarah Cattaneo and Owen Trinkler were inside the Top-10, and the prospects of qualifying and the race looked positive.

    Cattaneo was able to put the #44 Nissan Altima Coupe on the front row during qualifying in second place, and the much desired outside position going into turn one for the race start.  This was Sarah’s first front row qualifying effort since the 2011 season, and put a great deal of confidence into the team and fear into the competition.

    At the drop of the green flag Cattaneo had a very strong start and within the first few laps had taken the lead.  After swapping places with the championship points leading Mazda throughout her stint, she was able to take the lead for good several laps before turning the car over to teammate Trinkler.  Following the pit stop Owen was able to pick up where Sarah left off.  Before long he too passed for the lead in the Street Tuner (ST) class.

    Trinklers lead was short lived, he had an electrical issue with 30-minutes remaining that took him out of the lead and ultimately out of the race.  The extreme heat approaching 100 degrees and long laps around Circuit of the America’s (COTA) 3.41 mile road course wreaked havoc on many of the competitors during the race with much higher attrition throughout the field than normally takes place in the ultra-competitive ST class.

    Sarah’s enthusiasm about her and her teams’ performance at COTA rang through in her post-race comments.  “The beginning of the weekend was awesome.  Qualifying on the front row and leading the race, you really can’t ask for anything more than that.  I really happy with my opening stint, and the crew did a great job getting the car prepared.  I really can’t thank the team enough for all they do for Owen and me.  The races don’t always go as planned, which is why we do this, but we’ll be prepared and back at Road Atlanta for the final round.”

    Owen, always the optimist, focused more on the positives of the weekend, then on the disappointment of how it ended.  “Sarah did a great job this weekend in both qualifying and the race.  She’s come a long way with this car in a short period of time.  As a team we expect that she’ll be able to qualify and run towards the front of the field, and she’s doing that.  It’s great to see her confidence grow as the season’s gone on.  The crew executed a great pit stop, and I was able to run the leaders back down to retake the lead before the issue arose.  I’m mostly disappointed for the crew, they work so hard to prepare this car, and they see what the car is capable of.  They know the podium was in reach the past few events, and we want to reward them with that at Road Atlanta to end the season with momentum.”

    The Circuit of the America’s 150 can be viewed via tape delayed broadcast on Fox Sports 1 on Sunday, September 25th at 5:00 pm EDT.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 13, 2016– Rebel Rock Racing enters the gates at Circuit of the America (COTA) tomorrow for the penultimate round of the 2016 Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Series with their two Street Tuner (ST) class Porsche Caymans.  The team welcomes driver Sean Rayhall to the fray to share the #7 Urban Grid backed entry with team-owner Frank DePew, while the lineup of Theo Bean and Robin Liddell remain in the #8 Cayman.

    The picturesque circuit is the favorite of many in the sport, and for those that haven’t had the opportunity to race on it, it’s typically on their individual ‘to do’ list.  DePew is one of those that’s looking forward to checking this one off his list.  “I’m glad I was able to get some time in the Cayman at Virginia the last round so I have a little experience with the platform. Now that I’ve gotten acclimated to the car, I’ll get my first laps at COTA, and I’ve watched some video and reviewed some driving notes so I’ll know my way around after a few laps.  Sean (Rayhall) is a really good driver that’s had a lot of success, I’m looking forward to sharing the car with him.  The teams’ been hard at work constantly improving these cars, and I’d like to reward them with a strong result.”

    Rayhall echoed Frank’s enthusiasm as well about his series debut, “I’m excited to join Rebel Rock Racing for the last two races of the series after a busy season.  I’ve always wanted to race in this series, and I’m thankful they are giving me the opportunity.  COTA and Road Atlanta are two of my favorite tracks here in the States, so let’s see what we can get done!”

    Robin Liddell’s been with the team all season and has played a large part in the continuing development of the program and the cars.  Going into this round he states, “Every track we go to with the Rebel Rock Racing Porsche Cayman this year has been a new experience for me.  In terms of overall performance or track suitability with the car, it’s very hard for me to predict the potential outcome.  That being said, the team has undoubtedly made some major improvements over the last couple of events, and we’ve been consistently able to fight inside the Top-10.  We have a much stronger baseline from which to move forwards as we look to achieve success in these last couple of races and onwards into 2017.”

    Bean states, “Coming off a challenging race in some of the worst rain I’ve ever raced in, where we had a strong car despite the unfortunate yellow flag scenario that dictated the final results, I’m really looking forward to this week and getting behind the wheel at COTA.  I know our Rebel Rock Racing Porsche will be strong there, and the team has been putting in a lot of work to make sure Robin and I have something to take the fight to the rest of the ST field.”

    The Circuit of the America’s 150 kicks off with practice at 2:25 am EDT on Wednesday, September 14, 2016.  The race will drop the green flag at 1:40 pm EDT on Friday, September 16, 2016 and can be viewed live on IMSA.tv or via tape delayed broadcast on Fox Sports 1 on Sunday, September 25th at 5:00 pm EDT.

  • CRG – I Do Borrow Circuit of the Americas 150 Race Preview

    On September 13, 2016 • By

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 13, 2016 – The penultimate round of the 2016 Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Series is upon us as the CRG-I Do Borrow team enters the gates at Circuit of the America’s tomorrow.  The team will make a strong push in these final two rounds of the season to enter the offseason with momentum.

    Most racing seasons has its ebbs and flows, and this is no different.  The team led the points championship early in the season following their win at Sebring.  Then they made a car switch mid-season, winning with their Nissan Altima Coupe at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park following their debut.  Team driver Owen Trinkler took over the series all-time starts record just a few races later.

    In between all those highs were the expected lows that come with developing a car that is new to the team.  In all, this season has been an overwhelming success for the drivers and team alike.  Sarah Cattaneo has become a known quantity  in the series for her qualifying and opening stints, and Trinkler has acclimated himself well to the Nissan, and opposing teams dread the moments the development issues don’t take hold, as they know the #44 I Do Borrow backed machine is a force to be reckoned with.  All of this bodes well for the 2017 season as 2016 winds down.

    “I’m really looking forward COTA (Circuit of the America), it should be a really good track for us, and you can’t find a better venue or facility in North America.”  Cattaneo continues, “It’ll be our first time there with the Nissan and we expect to come out with great results.”

    Trinkler states, “The good parts of this season far outweigh the low ones.  Sarah has really come into her own this season, and in a two-driver scenario, you can’t stress enough how important it is to have a strong qualifying and starting driver.  I’d put her against any in the field!  The team has done a great job with coming to terms with the Nissan; it’s a car with great potential that we’re really excited about going forward.”

    The Circuit of the America’s 150 kicks off with practice at 2:25 am EDT on Wednesday, September 14, 2016.  The race will drop the green flag at 1:40 pm EDT on Friday, September 16, 2016 and can be viewed live on IMSA.tv or via tape delayed broadcast on Fox Sports 1 on Sunday, September 25th at 5:00 pm EDT.
