Tomy Drissi “The Predator” Camaro Finishes Sixth at Road America 

Using guile and perseverance, Tomy Drissi and the Burtin Racing Team turned a tough weekend into a strategic 6th place finish in Saturday’s  Ryan Companies Road America Trans Am Classic in Wisconsin.

“Man, these guys worked hard,” said Tomy of his Burtin Racing crew. ”These guys pulled all nighters making sure The Predator Camaro would be  ready for Saturday’s race. Given the motor issues teams were having, we decided on a strategy of driving steady and bringing the car home in one piece. I mean, you could see everyone blowing motors throughout the race... we wanted to stay in the hunt and be there at the end. We got as high as fourth, but got shuffled back to sixth. I may have errored on the side of caution, keeping the revs low, shifting early... I wanted to last just didn’t want push it.  I felt bad for my teammate Loshak... he had a strong run early in the race. Happy for Boris and the Weaver crew. They did a great job. I’m confident we had a podium car, but given the conditions and the week we had, I’m happy with our result!”

“We had a great time with The Predator movie on the car” added Tomy... “it looked great and fans loved it. We’ll go hunting again at Watkins Glen.”
“Thanks to Claudio and all the Burtin guys for their hard work,” said Tomy. “They’re a great crew and a joy to be around.”

The Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli will return to action at Watkins Glen International, September 7th through 9th.

Opens September 14, 2018. From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home. The universe's most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.
