Subaru Road Racing Team Travels to Road America

- Race 7 of 2011 GRAND-AM Series -

Phoenixville, PA. – June 21, 2011

As the GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Series starts its run to the season’s end with race seven of 10 Friday on the sprawling Road America circuit near Elkhart Lake, Wis., the Subaru Road Racing Team is banking on the improvements it has recently shown, and is looking forward to its first visit to the track.

The Subaru Road Racing Team (SRRT) prepares and races a 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI 4-door model in the series for Subaru of America, Inc.

 At Road America, Andrew Aquilante, Chester Springs, Pa., returns to the cockpit after a two-race absence, joined by regular SRRT driver Bret Spaude, Bushnell, Fla.

“We have worked with Grand Am and as a team to extract all the performance we can from what is a top-shelf performance car to begin with,” said Joe Aquilante, owner of Phoenix Performance Inc., in Phoenixville, Pa., where the SRRT cars are race-prepared.

 “Our results are showing those performance gains, too. We led seven laps of the Alabama race in April, we were in the top 10 at Virginia International, we qualified second quickest and set the fastest race lap at Lime Rock Park, and we used our backup car to battle back after having to forego our primary car at Watkins Glen.”

The Road America race will have practice laps Thursday at 11am and 3:15pm ET, qualifying Friday at 10:15am ET, and a 2 ½-hour race into sunset Friday night starting at 6:15pm.  As always, fans can follow their favorite teams via a live timing and scoring feed of all on-track sessions at

The race will be televised by SPEED TV to air July 3 at 1pm ET.

Sponsors for SRRT include Subaru Of America, Inc., Subaru Tecnica International (STI), Subaru Performance Tuning (SPT), Hawk Brakes, Ron Davis Racing Radiators, Automotive Racing Products, VAC Motorsports, Rockland Standard Gear, Ecutek, Lista, Rotary Lifts, Cusco, Carbonetic, Hella, and Perrin.
