    Stu Hayner gears up his #5 GTO for SPEED World Challenge

    GMAC / Trenton Forging #5 GTO Mid-Ohio Pre-Race Report

    Hayner ready to pick up where he left off at Atlanta

    Detroit - May 17, 2005 The #5 GMAC Commercial Finance / Trenton
    Forging GTO, driven by Stu Hayner, heads to Mid-Ohio Sportscar Course
    in Lexington, Ohio for the SCCA Pro Racing SPEED World Challenge GT
    race presented by Trenton Forging Quality Formed Solutions. The
    series is running as part of the American Le Mans event May 20-22.
    The World Challenge events will run Saturday and Sunday and air on
    SPEED Channel Saturday, May 28 at 3pm and 4pm.

    “The SPEED World Challenge Weekend presented by Trenton Forging
    Quality Formed Solutions is an exciting event for us,” commented
    Autosport Development and Trenton Forging owner, David Moxlow. “Our
    customer base is very strong here in the Midwest. We have 300 or more
    guests joining the team along with our friends from Motorsports
    Ministries and Sports Car Revolution for the weekend festivities. We
    intend to make them all big fans of the SPEED World Challenge Series
    and the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course!”

    “We’re really hoping to do well this weekend,” commented driver, Stu
    Hayner. “This is a big weekend for our sponsor, Trenton Forging.
    We’ve got a lot going on. Not only is Trenton Forging the title
    sponsor for the weekend, but, as David said, we are entertaining a
    lot of folks from GMAC Commercial Finance, Trenton Forging and PR
    Machine. We intend to show them a great time.”

    “We made a lot of progress with our run at Road Atlanta last month,”
    continued Hayner. “It was good to get a full race under our belt and
    be able to shift our focus to the car set-ups and performance. We
    think we’ve made some gains since then… especially in the handling
    department. The guys have made some changes to the car that will give
    us a lot more adjustability in the spring rate and help to better
    balance the car. Those changes will ultimately allow us to get more
    aggressive with the car. We feel our speed is good. We just need to
    be able to get in and out of the corners with more predictability.
    It’s really starting to come along.”

    “The team did some testing with Jim Osborn in the car last week,”
    Hayner went on. “They came back very encouraged with the changes and
    Jim was excited to get some seat time in the car.”

    In other activities, Hayner and Osborn are taking time out to pay a
    visit to patients being treated at the Columbus Children’s Hospital.

    “It’s great to get to do this,” commented Osborn. “It’s nice to meet
    the patients and their families. You realize that it’s pretty much
    impossible for many of them to attend a race. So it’s always a
    pleasure signing autographs and talking about our cars and racing.”

    Autosport Development competes as part of the SPEED World Challenge
    GT Series. All events are nationally televised on SPEED channel
    (formerly Speedvision). In 2005 the SPEED World Challenge Series
    schedule will include street races in Denver and St. Petersburg, and
    make the traditional stops around the country at great tracks like
    Sebring, Road Atlanta, Lime Rock Park, Infineon, Mosport, Cleveland,
    Portland, Road America, Mid-Ohio and Laguna Seca.

    I just posted on the Cadillac CTS-V thing about Mid Ohio, I'm really considering going, seeing that its 60 miles from my house. The GTO racing program is generating alot of buzz. So is Cadillac and the C5R and C6R.

    SSrevolution, how much does it cost to go to one of these events? It's sad that I live in central Ohio, yet have never been to the track

    I mainly go to the SCCA events, and small personal races with my friends. (mostly Miatas and RX7s). If you want a paddock pass your best bet is to have friends who race. So I don't know that. But other tickets tend to be $10-$50 a person. It is a nice facility. Relativly speaking, I mean it doesn't support NASCAR and F1 races. You should go for SCCA events, they are pretty fun.

    Definitely. It's some great stuff. And the closer to showroom stock the more interesting it is to me.
