A Busy Few Weeks in Motorsports


While OPTIMA Jim was getting the Power Pack Nation 400K Excursion ready for the Hot Rod Magazine Power Tour, the racing world was busy...well, racing. OPTIMA-sponsored racer, Paul Brown, won the GTS class of the SCCA Pirelli World Challenge Grand Prix of Mosport, presented by OPTIMA Batteries and now leads the series. You can watch a replay of the race this Saturday on Versus at 3PM Eastern and you can read coverage on the race here.

Down South, OPTIMA-sponsored racer, Willie Phee, picked up two podium finishes in three races at the combined National/Regional event at Road Atlanta. This included a win in the SCCA's new STL class.

Out West, competitors in the United States Touring Car Championships, where OPTIMA is the official battery, battled it out at Thunderhill RacewayInfineon Raceway.

Elsewhere, namely France, the Corvette boys from Pratt Miller were busy winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans. We don't officially sponsor that team, but we do root for them and have noticed our products in their pit area before.
