Magnus Owner John Potter Donates $10,000 to Racing4Research

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (October 15, 2014)- Following a six-day voting session designed entirely for the fans of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, Magnus Racing has been voted as the fan favorite for the inaugural Microsoft Visual Studio “Team to Win” Grand Prize.

“It means a lot to be voted as the favorite team by the fans,” stated team owner John Potter. “Our priority is of course on winning races and championships, but we put a lot of effort and commitment toward our unique brand, especially delivering something different for our fans, and it’s great to know it’s recognized. The ‘Magnus Militia’ is unlike anything out there, and I’m proud to see this kind of response. We couldn’t be happier to turn around and donate to the Children’s Tumor Foundation. Our partnership with CTF dates back to our victory at Daytona in 2012, and one that we’ve always been very happy to be associated with. The Foundation does great work raising awareness and donations for research toward helping children suffering from NF, and I’m more than happy to represent our fans by donating.”

THE CONTEST IS HAPPENING NOW AND ENDS AT NOON ON SUNDAY, VOTE NOW!
 
A fan-voted contest dedicated to the teams who demonstrated perseverance and teamwork throughout the 2014 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, Magnus Racing was nominated by virtue of their victory at the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.

“We would love to give back the winnings to the community as part of this contest,” stated Magnus Racing team owner John Potter. “This is all supposed to be in good fun, and the Children’s Tumor Foundation has been such a large part of the sportscar scene that it only makes sense this type of program benefits them.”

Commanding Second Win of 2014 for CTF "Art Car" and Compass360 Racing

on Monday, 22 September 2014. Posted in R4R News Blog

Dramatic performances from Gimple, Eversley and crew punctuate exciting, rainy race in Texas

M4S 0421

AUSTIN, TEXAS — Unsettled weather formed the backdrop to an exciting Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race at one of the country’s most impressive race tracks, the Circuit of the Americas in Texas. Known for hosting the United States’ round of the Formula 1 calendar in early November, this weekend’s event was all about sportscar racing.

IMSA’s TUDOR series combined with the only North American round of the FIA’s World Endurance Championship on Saturday, while the two-and-a-half-hour CTSCC race was Friday’s highlight.

Gimple, who had qualified in P4 made quick work of the leaders and took the lead of the race in the early going. As expected, his #75 Children’s Tumor Foundation / Honda HPD / Racing4Research.org Civic Si — the lead front-wheel-drive car — suffered tire degradation earlier than its rear-wheel-drive Street Tuner competition, and Kyle did a masterful job of maintaining the pace in third while conserving his Continental rubber.
