CLAUDIO BURTIN SETTING SIGHTS ON 2020 FOR BURTIN RACING
November 22, 2019
Daytona Beach, FL (18 November, 2019) – The GoShare/Elavon #3 Chevrolet Camaro retired early with a smoke filled cockpit on Saturday during the Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli season finale at Daytona International Speedway. The car was being piloted by the team principal Claudio Burtin at the time. The unexpected failure with the transmission was unrelated to the new ECR Chevrolet RO7 engine package that was being tested for next year. Burtin Racing is the first to run the late model engine package in the Trans Am series.
“No one likes to bring the car in early but I’m happy with the performance and knowledge that we gained from the weekend. The data we gathered at Daytona and the relationships that we have built over this year are going to make our Chevy Camaro package the strongest contender next year. It is great to have the relationship with ECR to be the first to run this engine package in Trans Am.” said Burtin, a six time 24 Hours of Daytona contender, about the weekend.
