07.08.11 - #88 ITA Integra Third in SARRC Season Points
The #88 ITA Integra (previously #05 car, now renumbered) driven by Grant is currently running third in the South Atlantic Road Race Championship points standings for the year. The season finals will be in October at the SARRC Invitational Challenge in Georgia.

10.16.10 - Sebring SARRC/Regional
We ran all three cars this weekend, including the new #05 ITA Integra, on the Sebring Short Course. Everyone drove well, taking 1-2 seconds off their previous best lap times. Grant really got a chance to stretch the legs on the new #05 Integra, slicing a full six seconds off his previous best lap time in the #81 Neon. The integra started sixth in class (13th overall) in the 30 minute SARRC race and finished 1st in class (5th overall). See the videos on the media page for the full race.

10.08.10 - SARRC Invitational Challenge - Roebling Road
Grant was invited to the SIC at Roebling Road in Georgia. We may not have attended except for the added incentive of picking up the new #05 ITA Integra. The previous owner was nice enough to deliver the car to us at Roebling. Grant drove with Doug crew chiefing. This was mostly just a chance for Grant to learn the car but ended up finishing 6th in class. This closed out the SARRC season with Grant 13th overall in the SE Division points for the year.

09.21.10 - ITA Integra Purchased
We have acquired an extremely well developed 90 Acura Integra ITA car for Grant to drive for the 2011 season. The deal was sealed by phone and we'll be taking delivery of here on Oct 8th in Savannah, GA. The #81 ITA Neon was also sold today..but to a new teammate who will be joining the team in Febuary 2011.

09.05.10 - Sebring ECR/Regional
We ran both the #81 and #34 ITA Neons in this action packed weekend on the Sebring long course. Doug & Grant ran the #34 Neon in the Saturday Enduro, then each in our own cars for both Sunday Regional races. Doug did great while Grant spent too much time spinning and taking agricultural trips, including an altercation with the wall in Turn 1. Fun, but rough weekedn overall. See the videos on the media page for full details.

08.08.10 - Sebring Double SARRC
Grant ran #81 on the Sebring short course in this CFR Double SARRC. Again, lack of foresight - this time brake pads - caused the running in both races on AutoZone brake pads (yikes!) and the subsequent placing 8th in class on both days :(

07.18.10 - Sebring Drivers School
All three cars ran a practice weekend on the Sebring short course. Grant & Doug in the #81 and #34 ITA Neons, and Matt driving the #83 ITA GTi. Thanks a million to Mark Dana who attended for the sole purpose of coaching & instructing our three drivers...and asking nothing in return. Mark: you are the man! See the video of the Sunday practice race on the media page.

06.12.10 - Homestead ECR Enduro
Grant & Doug ran the #81 Neon in the Saturday ECR Enduro at Homestead Raceway and placed 3rd in class!! This was our first top three finish! Unfortunately a lack of foresight on tires (and the Hoosier truck no-showing) caused us to opt out of the Sunday Enduro and go home early.

05.02.10 - Daytona Enduro
Grant & Doug ran the CFR Enduro at Daytona International Speedway and placed 7th in class. This was the very last SCCA event that will be run at Daytona until the 2011 season due to resurfacing of the track.

02.21.10 - Sebring Long Course SARRC
Grant's first official SCCA race was at the Sebring International Speedway. The long course was a challenge but it was a good weekend and valuable seat time.

02.15.10 - Roebling Road Raceway
Grant attended and completed the Double Drivers School put on by the Buccaneer Region at Roebling Road in Savannah, GA. This 4-day event was a blast and the Neon ran perfectly all weekend.

10.7.06 - RX-7 Runs at Daytona
Our new Mazda RX-7 gets her first run at Daytona International Speedway during the SCCA Drivers School weekend. She runs well, and brakes like a dream! However, Sunday we blow a side-seal and limp back to the pits to conclude the weekend.

7.23.06 - Mazda RX-7 Purchased
Thrust Motorsports adds a rotary powered Mazda RX-7 to the stable. Fully prepped and passed SCCA Tech Inspection for E Production class Club Racing.
