New York, NY - June 22, 2020 - Everyone in the motorsports community is looking forward to the resumption of the 2020 Trans Am presented by Pirelli Championship season, but few drivers are anticipating the return as eagerly as the man behind the wheel of the No. 96 SGT F.A.S.T. Auto Ford Mustang, Adrian Wlostowski. Competing in a full season of Trans Am for the first time, the Maspeth, New York based pilot made the podium at Sebring, finishing in a fine P3 after starting from P5. We spoke to Adrian earlier in the week and his enthusiasm for the return to action was positive. After such a great result in Florida, it's not surprising he is looking for a repeat performance at a track that's new to him and the Forgeline/Hawk sponsored team.
"I've never been on track at Mid Ohio before but from what I've heard it's a fantastic circuit and a real test of both car and driver. After making the podium at Sebring, naturally we're hoping for a repeat and a few steps up for improvement on the results. Going to places like Mid Ohio is one of the reasons we joined Trans Am. To say we are looking forward to racing on asphalt again after the situation we've all been in is an understatement! Fortunately, we've been able to keep busy during the lockdown working on the customers' cars and of course fine tuning the Mustang, ready for action. Now, I just want to be competitive again on the track."
Adrian and the Ford Mustang will be at the mid-western venue regarded by many as picturesque on the Trans Am roster. In compliance with the state designated requirements for the weekend's racing to go ahead, all the required protocols will no doubt be observed by the teams and drivers present.
A true professional both on the track and in the shop, Adrian and the F.A.S.T. Auto team leave no stone unturned in the quest for improved performance, hence Adrian's Ford Mustang will be benefiting from the exceptionally strong and lightweight wheels supplied by team sponsor Forgeline wheels. It's a similar story where the brakes are concerned, where the Big Apple outfit has teamed up with Hawk Performance. Hawk Performance Product Group Manager, Malcolm Sedano stated, "Adrian is so committed to continually exploring ways to improve, both in the garage and on the track, and that’s why he’s such a perfect match for Hawk Performance.”
Located in the township of Troy, Morrow County, Mid Ohio Sports Car Course is now in its 58th year of operation and is classified by the FIA as a Grade 2 circuit. Although perhaps lacking the prestige of some of the bigger circuits on the Trans Am presented by Pirelli schedule, Mid Ohio is invariably popular with the drivers, it presents a terrific challenge for the athlete drivers doing the steering.
The action for the Super GT class gets underway on Friday June 26 with a practice session scheduled for 11:55 a.m. The crucial qualifying session is at exactly 5:32 p.m. on the same afternoon. The grid for the feature TA/XGT/SGT/GT race itself will be forming up at 12:25 p.m. on Saturday with the start of the race at 12:55 p.m. over 46 laps of what is a relatively short circuit.
Team F.A.S.T. Auto Racing would like to thank Mid Ohio and the organizers of Trans Am for getting the show back on the road. We can't wait
