|At last count, the entry list for the Blitzkrieg at Mid Ohio was up to 37 entrants. GTS2 leads the way with 14 and GTS3 is not far behind with 9. One more in GTS3 and we will receive a free race entry to raffle off to the GTS3 racers. GTS2 has already earned their free entry for one lucky driver. With 37 entrants, GTS Challenge is the largest field of the entire weekend, with American Iron the next largest with 29. If you haven't registered for Mid Ohio, it's not too late.
Two more sponsors have come aboard. Inertiawerks (http://www.inertiawerks.com/) is owned by fellow GTS1 racer David Ellingsworth of the VA region. They specialize in BMW, Porsche and Audi performance parts and services along with custom manufacturing. Isaac, LLC (http://www.isaacdirect.com/) has also joined the GTS ranks. Isaac, LLC have developed Head and Neck restraint systems that have tested more effective than the HANS device. Please visit both websites for company and product info.
