SEATTLE, WA: Team Seattle will partner with Compass360 Racing (C360R) to field two Sreet Tuner-class cars in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge series (CTSCC) support race at Daytona in 2013.
The C360R Honda Civic Si racecars will be the flag bearers in the CTSCC race for the 2013 Team Seattle Hearts program. Each car will field either the female or male heart and carry the names of those who have participated in the Heart Army. Team Seattle founder Don Kitch Jr. commented, “We’re delighted to be partnering with Compass360 Racing. This relationship takes our efforts into new territory at Daytona, as it’ll be the first time we’ve entered the CTSCC race in the 15 years we’ve competed at Daytona. The additional awareness we can garner from a championship winning team like C360R will only help us drive greater awareness for our cause and raise additional funds for Seattle Children’s Hospital”.
The driver line up is still being firmed up, however Team Seattle volunteer and recent C360R driver James Colborn will be partnering up with C360R alumni and Team Seattle supporter Ted Anthony Jr. to drive the first of the two cars. “Driving for Team Seattle has been a personal goal for me since I started volunteering with Don Kitch Jr. a few years ago” says Colborn. “I’m excited to be driving with Ted who has been a big part of my racing career since I started back in 2009. To partner with Karl is just fantastic having raced with him and his team at a couple of races in the 2012 CTSCC season and having experienced their professionalism and team dynamic both on and off the track”.
Karl Thomson, Team Princpal of C360R commented “We’re equally excited to extend our effort at Daytona to support Team Seattle and their philanthropic efforts. Both James and Ted have driven with us before and I believe that not only will they bring good awareness and fundraising for the charity but also have a shout at a great finish in the race.”
More news will following in the coming weeks on the driver line up for the second of the two cars and the team will be preparing for the race with entry into the early January practice days at Daytona.
