New York, NEW YORK - November 13, 2020 - Leaving Circuit of The Americas the last day it was widely believed that the official driver classification in the 2020 Trans Am presented by Pirelli Super GT Class would show New York newcomer Adrian Wlostowski leading a pack of 15 drivers as we head into the penultimate weekend of the season. However, with fewer than 10 cars in the Super GT Class race at COTA, when the final results posted that Adrian remained five points behind Championship leader Lee Saunders. What is not in dispute is that the No. 96 F.A.S.T. Auto Racing Ford Mustang has undoubtedly made a tremendous impact this season and that looks certain to continue when the Trans Am roadshow arrives at the Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, Braselton, Georgia November 19 to 22.
What a weekend it promises to be, with two races scheduled at the Road Atlanta venue. First, as usual, the SGT Class cars will be racing with all but the TA2 Class on Saturday, and then there's an all-class race on the Sunday to replace one of the cancelled events.
Now riding high in the Championship, Adrian is understandably relishing the prospect of getting behind the wheel again and, hopefully, finally getting to lead the Championship. We spoke to Adrian earlier in the week and the Big Apple pilot is clearly pumped for the weekend ahead.
"I am super excited about going to Road Atlanta. I thought we'd be top of the Championship and it turns out that only makes us more determined," Adrian stated. "It's been such a hard and difficult year for everyone including our New York City based shop. Now we're going to Atlanta a few points behind when I thought we were five points ahead - but that's the way it goes sometimes. Now I just want us to keep the momentum going into the final four races."
Adrian is very grounded as well as being talented and was quick to tip his hat to the sponsors that have helped him race at the top, "Hawk and Forgeline Wheels have gone above and beyond to put us here. They make the most amazing brakes and wheels, and using them on the Mustang has put me right in contention in the Championship." Adrian is new to the paddock, though he has driven it virtually as he explained, "Atlanta is a track I have never driven except the simulator during the Trans Am Esports event."
Renamed recently following a deal between IMSA Holdings and the European giant Michelin, Rounds 8 and 9 of the 2020 Trans Am presented by Pirelli Championship are at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta. Green flag for the first race is at 10:45 a.m. ET on Saturday, November 21 with the spectacular all-classes race a high noon fixture the following day. Road Atlanta is always one of the most popular weekends in the schedule and the prospect of racing twice seems to have made it more so, with a whopping 58 cars due on the track simultaneously on Sunday if everyone stands their ground.
