Fortune Auto Evo IX Gets Another Podium!

The Fortune Auto Time Attack Race Team got their third podium finish in a row at the 2010 Redline Time Attack East Coast Finals this past weekend!  The race was held at the famous Sebring International Raceway in the intense central Florida heat, and the boys at Fortune Auto piloted both of their time attack cars to podium finishes.

Their Street Tire AWD Class car (white) runs a Berk Technology high flow catalytic converter and the team has reported back excellent things about the part handling the abuses of time attack in extreme weather conditions.  Todd Reid, driver of the #48 Fortune Auto Street Tire class Evo has finished on the podium at all three East Coast Redline Time Attack events, taking 2nd place at the Sebring finale with a 2:27.285, but it was not easy.  The team suffered from two cracked brake rotors early on limiting Reid’s practice time.  The team sourced some new rotors down in not-so-nearby Miami and pulled off a late night swap on Saturday night to be ready for competition on Sunday.

Todd Reid and the boys at Fortune Auto put in a solid effort this season which started for the East Coast region at New Jersey Motorsports Park where the team grabbed an Overall Street Tire Class and Street Tire AWD Class win.  The next stop on the East Coast tour headed to Autobahn Country Club near Chicago where the team finished third in a seriously close battle.  Add to that the 2nd place finish at the East Coast finals at Sebring and you have a strong effort and huge success!  The Street Tire Class car finished a close 2nd in the East Coast Street Tire AWD Championship behind the Professional Awesome Evo 7 driven by Dan O’Donnell.

Be sure to keep an eye on the Fortune Auto boys as they continue to tear up the track with their stunning pair of Evos!
