Professional Awesome Racing posts Street Class Lap Records with Global Time Attack (9.18.11)
Professional Awesome Racing, based in West Lafayette, IN, has started their 2011 Time Attack season with a bang with two back-to-back street tire track records first at New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville, NJ on August 7 followed by Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, IL on September 18. These victories in Global Time Attack’s inaugural season have helped driver Daniel O’Donnell secure a 5th track record in as many races.
With these being the initial outings for the Professional Awesome Evolution VII featuring a new MA Performance/Manley powerplant, the pressure was on to see if all the hard work in the offseason would translate into on-track success. With the car running smoothly, the team secured the track records on the initial day of both events. At New Jersey Motorsports Park, O’Donnell pushed the Evolution VII to an amazing 1:11.611 taking first place in street class as well as beating all cars in the next higher class. At Autobahn Country Club, the team reset their previous track record with a 1:34.275 with only two full speed sessions due to a rain-shortened weekend.
According to O’Donnell, “The team was happy with the results especially when a transmission failure mere hours before the Autobahn event put the crew into a mad dash to even participate.” Professional Awesome still believes there is more in the car and looks forward to Global Time Attack’s next event at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, CA. November 12-13 where the team will compete against the best the West has to offer. The vehicle will also be on display with Zeitronix at the SEMA Show November 1-4.
