New York, NY - August 6, 2020 - A fine series of results in the opening exchanges of the 2020 Trans Am presented by Pirelli Championship season Super GT Class has seen New York based rookie Adrian Wlostowski mount the podium in all three of the races so far this season - one case in particular in extraordinary circumstances. Unsurprisingly, the extremely competitive New York ace now wants to go one better at Road America and claim his first win of the season, and his first in Trans Am.
Adrian is team principal and number one driver for the up and coming F.A.S.T. Auto Racing team. They've been running a Ford Mustang designated number 96. Having opened the season with a P3 at Sebring all the way back in March, he went one better next time out at Mid Ohio to claim second spot before an extraordinary turn of events at Brainerd. Trans Am really lived up to its name as the Big Apple outfit had to abandon their race car for the weekend and haul a partly decommissioned Chevrolet Corvette all the way from the East Coast to rural Minnesota! Adrian claimed second as he did in an unfamiliar car with a massively rushed preparation, it was a tremendous achievement for car, team and driver. Adrian also won the CoolShirt Systems ‘Cool Move of the Race’ award.
Now, Adrian is looking to build on his achievements to date this season at Road America, where there will be 10 cars in the Super GT class. He spoke to us before heading out west again, this time to Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.
"I can't say I'm too familiar with Road America," stated Adrian. "I've studied the layout and it looks a great track alright. We've been competitive so far this season and I'd like to think we can be again, but I'm taking nothing for granted - not after last time!"
Given the current circumstances, it's great that we're racing at all, something not lost on Adrian when he added, "To say it's been a tough year for everyone is an understatement. It would be great to get that first win on the board at Road America, but to be honest I'm just grateful that we're racing again and the season is underway. Big thanks go out to Trans Am and the organizers at Road America."
Located in Wisconsin's scenic Kettle Moraine, Elkhart Lake's Road America, Inc. is one of the world's fastest permanent road racing tracks. The 640-acre, park-like grounds offer amazing viewing opportunities, fantastic concessions and high-speed excitement to thousands of spectators each year. The Trans Am action forms part of a bumper program, billed as the NASCAR Xfinity Series Henry 180 weekend and will feature incredible wheel-to-wheel and door-to-door racing from the NASCAR Xfinity Series, Stadium Super Truck Series as well as the Trans Am Series.
The all important qualifying session for the Super GT Class is at 3:15 p.m. on Friday, August 7 with a 20 minute session. The grid for the race itself is bright and early at 7:20 a.m. on Saturday, with the race itself over 25 laps underway at 8:00 a.m.
