APR Motorsport - Homestead - 2012

Team will also ‘Think Pink’ by taking part in Susan G. Komen Foundation Charity Auction

May 9, 2012 (Opelika, Ala.) – It’s an upbeat APR Motorsport team that is traveling to Millville, New Jersey and the New Jersey Motorsports Park for this weekend’s Global Barter 250 for the Rolex Series and B+ Heroes 200 for the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge. For starters, the weather promises to be almost perfect, leaving the memories of a rainy weekend in Miami behind, and second, the team’s drivers are eager to tackle NJMP’s Thunderbolt circuit.

With Dr. Jim Norman and Dion von Moltke at the helm, the no. 51 APR Audi R8 Grand-Am has shown vastly improved form at the last two races at Barber Motorsports Park and Homestead-Miami Speedway. The torrential weather conditions meant the car would finish well down the order as the team diagnosed a problem with the car’s computer, but the car had shown tremendous speed during von Moltke’s opening stint.

As part of NJMP’s partnership with the Susan G. Komen foundation, fans can participate in an online auction for a Pit Crew Experience with several Rolex Series teams, including APR Motorsport. To bid on your chance to see the Global Barter 250 from the pits of the no. 51 APR Audi R8 Grand-Am, visit www.komencsnj.org/njmp.

In the ST class, the APR Motorsport VW’s have struggled in the straight line throughout this season, but the technical nature of the NJMP Thunderbolt circuit may play to the car’s strengths this weekend. The team will bring only four of its usual five VW’s, as the no. 181 APR VW Jetta GLI will miss this event as it is undergoing repairs after an incident at Homestead-Miami Speedway, so drivers Hector Guerrero and Juan Pablo Sierra will move over to the no. 131 APR VW Jetta GLI.

APR Motorsport - Homestead - 2012

Nate Norenberg and Josh Hurley have shown strong pace in the beginning of the season in the no. 161 APR VW GTI, and are looking to get their first top-five in 2012. In the no. 171 APR VW GTI, Aleks Altberg will be reunited with his regular co-driver David Cheng, while Christian Perez and Daniel La Riva will round out the fleet in the no. 191 APR VW Jetta GLI

Fans of APR Motorsports can speak with team owner Stephen Hooks during the CTSCC and Rolex Series races on its Live Blog, which can be accessed at www.goapr.com. Fans can ask questions and get a glimpse into what the team goes through during each race.
