Children’s Tumor Foundation Teams Fight to the Finish at the Rolex 24 At Daytona

on Wednesday, 29 January 2014. Posted in R4R News Blog

Much Like the “NF Heroes” the Foundation Supports, Three Scrappy Porsche GTD Teams Overcame Hardships to Complete the Rolex 24 At Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Florida (January 28, 2014) – All three Porsche 911 GT America teams racing in support of the Children’s Tumor Foundation’s (CTF) Racing4Research program at this past weekend’s Rolex 24 At Daytona persevered through a slew of endurance racing setbacks and, like the amazing “NF Heroes” they race to support, never gave up in meeting their goal of finishing America’s premier 24-hour race.

The Children's Tumor Foundation (CTF) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to finding effective treatments for the millions of people worldwide living with neurofibromatosis – known simply as NF – that is a common yet under-recognized genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body. NF affects one in every 3,000 people, more than cystic fibrosis, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and Huntington’s disease combined. The CTF funds critical research into neurofibromatosis. In addition to benefiting those who live with NF, this research is shedding new light on several forms of cancer, brain tumors, bone abnormalities, and learning disabilities, ultimately benefiting the broader community.20140125-a-4661

CTF Team Dominates in Baja 1000 SCORE Lites Class Victory

on Friday, 15 November 2013. Posted in R4R News Blog

Rafael Navarro IV, Patrick Long, Vic Bruckmann, Rafael Navarro III and Steve Eugenio Lead All the Way in the No. 1209 CTF/R4R Pete’s Camp Racing SCORE Lites Jimco-VW

 

ENSENADA, Baja California, Mexico (November 16, 2013) – Taking the fight against Neurofibromatosis South of the Border for the first time, and to one of the most demanding tests of man and machinery on the planet, the inaugural Children’s Tumor Foundation (CTF) Racing4Research (R4R) Baja 1000 team earned a dominating victory today with drivers Rafael Navarro IV, Patrick Long, Vic Bruckmann, Rafael Navarro III and Steve Eugenio in the legendary off-road race.

Navarro IV – better known in racing circles as “R4” or “Cuatro” – and the CTF/R4R crew shook off a surprise flat tire just 15 miles from the finish and still brought the No. 1209 CTF/R4R Pete’s Camp Racing SCORE Lites Jimco-VW Buggy across the line comfortably clear of the second-place finisher.

Bruckmann moved into the lead during his race-opening shift and following drivers Long, Eugenio, R4’s father Navarro III, and finishing driver Cuatro never had anything close to a major issue in the overnight Friday and Saturday race.
