Subaru Road Racing Team Battles to 13th Place Finish



Lexington, Ohio – June 19, 2010


Subaru Road Racing Team (SRRT) drivers Andrew Aquilante, from Chester Springs, Pa., and Bret Spaude, from Bushnell, Fl., finished 13th in Saturday’s 2.5-hour GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge series races at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.


Held on the 2.258-mile, 15-turn circuit, and from a 15th place qualifying position, only 0..765 seconds off the pole, Spaude and Aquilante raced their 2010 Subaru Impreza WRX STI to as high as seventh place in the 29-car Grand Sport field.


The race was round seven of 10 in the season for the Subaru Impreza WRX STI, race-prepared and tuned by Phoenix Performance of Phoenixville, Pa.


The race’s progress in its first half was marred by incidents which five times in the first half of the race had the field under control of the safety car, and there were green flag segments as brief as of three and four laps.


“We were very pleased with the mechanical reliability that we have been getting from the STI, especially in the high temperatures, and continue to work on adding more power and speed” said Phoenix Performance owner Joe Aquilante.


The next GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge series event on the calendar, another 2.5-hour race, is scheduled for July 17, at New Jersey Motorsports Park, near Millville, N.J.


The Mid-Ohio race will be televised on SPEED TV to air June 26 at 1pm ET.
