Children's Tumor Foundation's “Art Cars” On The Podium Two Races In A Row

on Monday, 14 July 2014. Posted in R4R News Blog

Cars featuring work by artist and CTF NF Hero Jeff Hanson win at Watkins Glen and take second at Mosport

BOWMANVILLE, Ontario, Canada — From midway through the race to the beginning of the penultimate lap of this weekend’s TUDOR Championship race, it looked like the #73 Park Place Motorsports / Children’s Tumor Foundation Porsche was well-placed to bring home a win at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, the first of the year for drivers Patrick Lindsey and Kévin Estre. However, as it had for much of the race, traffic played a factor, holding Estre up at just the wrong moment and allowing the second-place Viper into the lead. Despite a valiant push, Kévin was unable to re-take the position, and ended the race in second place.

park4.LM8 6285-1-PR“While we would have liked to take the win, we’re quite pleased with our result here today,” remarked Lindsey. “Our crew delivered a flawless car and pit stop, and Kévin drove his heart out. It’s a shame that traffic from a different class affected the outcome, but that’s one of the joys of multi-class racing. I do wish we could have closed this one out for all of the NF Heroes, but we will get one before the year is done.”

The Porsche is wrapped in an eye-catching livery featuring artwork by renowned artist and NF Hero Jeff Hanson in support of the Children’s Tumor Foundation’s Racing4Research™ program. Begun at the season-opening TUDOR race at Daytona, the program has since expanded to include the Park Place Porsche, as well as three additional cars run by long-time CTF team Compass360 Racing.

One of those cars was the #75 Honda Civic Si of Kyle Gimple and Ryan Eversley that won the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race at Watkins Glen two weeks prior. “It was such an honor to give the CTF families their first win of the season at Watkins,” enthused Gimple. “We got some great television coverage of the car and on the podium for the Foundation, and we hope to do that again before the year is out."

Three Cars, Three Categories, One Goal for CTF’s Racing4Research Program at Watkins Glen

on Wednesday, 25 June 2014. Posted in R4R News Blog

MK8 5423-PR

NEW YORK (June 25, 2014) - While the bright and colorful livery representing the Children's Tumor Foundation's Racing4Research program has been a part of the professional sports car scene since January, this weekend's Sahlen's Six Hours at the Glen will mark a historic first for the Foundation in which three separate cars in three separate categories will be at the same venue carrying the same colors.

"It's truly amazing how embracing the entire sports car scene has been of our program," stated Jill Beck, Director of Racing4Research. "So much of our efforts in racing are not just about raising awareness, but about giving the families and children suffering from NF an event to look forward to, and everyone in the paddock has accepted this with open arms. It should be a great event at Watkins Glen, and I have to thank everyone at Park Place Motorsports and Compass360 Racing for making this a reality."

 

IMSA’s Kansas Tour To Be A Special Weekend For CTF's “Art Cars"

on Thursday, 05 June 2014. Posted in R4R News Blog

Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Champions Compass360 Racing to host local CTF artist and NF Hero Jeff Hanson

KANSAS CITY, KS — After a successful outing at Lime Rock Park two weeks ago in which Compass360 Racing’s sharply-liveried Subaru WRX STi took its first podium of the season at the hands of Ryan Eversley and Kyle Gimple, the car will return to battle at Kansas Speedway this coming weekend, this time being driven by long-time C360R pilot Ray Mason and team newcomer Pierre Kleinubing.

Local artist Jeff Hanson — who was commissioned to create the piece of original art that adorns the GS-class #76 Subaru, as well as the team’s ST-class #75 Honda Civic Si helmed by Gimple and Eversley — will be celebrated at the event, along with an entourage of family, friends and other local-area NF Heroes.
