Bullet Racing to Attend Season Opening Event at The Ridge Motorsports Park
VANCOUVER, Canada (February 23, 2012) – Following a strong finish at the Rolex 24 at Daytona, the Bullet Racing team kicks off our Pacific Northwest region event calendar at our home track, The Ridge Motorsports Park, on March 16-18, 2012. Bullet Racing will bring their Daytona #22 and #33 Porsche GT3 Cup cars to the inaugural event of the Ridge Racing School, our regional driver development affiliate.
“This is an incredibly exciting time for motorsports in the Pacific Northwest”, said team owner Steve Paquette. “For the first time in more than a generation we have an all new motorsports park, and with this new venue a huge opportunity for drivers of all skill levels to develop their skills, whether you’re a diamond in the rough beginner or a seasoned professional. We are very excited to kick off the regional racing season at this Ridge Racing School event”.
We are also pleased announce that Matt Monson of Guard Transmission will be making the trip from Colorado to join us at this event. Matt will be on hand to apply his expertise assisting the team in optimizing the race car transmission performance at The Ridge. He will also be available to consult about Guard Transmission products and services.
Bullet Racing is looking forward to building on our success at Daytona where the team finished 20th in the strongest GT field ever assembled. “Considering that virtually every top driver and team in the world was racing at Daytona for this special 50th anniversary Rolex 24, to say that on that day we were the 20th best GT team in the world seems reasonable. I am extremely proud of the whole team and what we accomplished together, and grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of that”, said team driver Randy Blaylock. “I can’t wait to bring the Daytona cars to the Ridge Racing School event to begin testing and to share the excitement, I hear we may have a passenger seat in the cars. I’m so ready to start laying the groundwork for a successful 2012 racing season”.
We will have a strong contingent of Bullet Racing’s full-time racing crew on hand to answer any preparation and technical questions aspiring racers and crew may have.
Team drivers Brett Van Blankers, Joe White and Randy Blaylock will be in attendance to do some testing of the team GT3 Cup cars, as well as shake down runs of a new ICSCC ST class Porsche Cayman currently under development by Bullet Racing.
