As the 2007 Racing Season draws to a close, it goes without saying that this year has been another highly successful season for those that ride with Steeda Autosports. Once again, Steeda equipped vehicles have set more track records, won more races, and won more championships than all of our competitors (Shelby, Roush, and Saleen) combined! The road racing courses and drag strips continue to be the ultimate proving grounds for our products and vehicles with one specific purpose in mind: To design, engineer, manufacturer, and distribute the BEST performance products possible for the Ford performance enthusiast.
To highlight just one of our many race victories that exemplify our success this season, we are going to highlight a race series that occurred during the weekend of November 17th and 18th at the South Atlantic Road Race of Champions at the Moroso Motorsports Park in Palm Beach County Florida – the “super bowl” of competition where all of the class leaders and top competitors race against each other:
On Saturday, the Steeda Team took their Steeda prepared Focus to the two hour enduro championship. Qualifying 1st in class and an amazing 3rd overall the stoutly prepared Steeda Focus piloted by Dario Orlando and Glen Vitale beat all class competitors and even out ran Porsche 911s and BMWs on it’s way to another 1st place class finish. On Sunday the winning steak continued when Dario Orlando, running in 2nd place with three laps to go, out-braked and out-handled the 1st place car into a turn and easily captured the lead and captured yet another 1st place class victory for the Steeda Team.
Not to be outdone, Tom Ellis raced to another amazing set of victory’s in American Sedan when his Steeda prepared SN95 Mustang not only set a new class track record of 1:39.446 around the challenging Moroso road course, but also captured two 1st place podium finishes: one on Saturday and another on Sunday.Congratulations Tom on a highly successful year!
One weekend, one track, two cars, and four 1st place victories and a new track record – just another example of the Steeda winning advantage that is yours every time you have Steeda on your side!
Steeda – Where Speed Matters!
