Project Scion Clinches World Challenge Team, Manufacturer, and Driver Championships

TORRANCE, Calif -  This past weekend at rounds 10 and 11 at Virginia International Raceway, the DG-Spec Scion team clinched every Touring Car championship possible in the World Challenge series.  Even more impressive is that this happens with a race still to go at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah.

VIDEO: Project Scion tC at Long Beach!

Check out this sweet video of our Project Scion shot at the Long Beach Grand Prix.  Great in car camera shots show exactly how hard it is to drive on a street course.  Looking at how little the driver can see to aid in positioning the car and even work in traffic will give you reasons to respect what Dan Gardner and Robert Stout do!  This video is a must see.  If there is interest we can post some more raw in car video at a later date.

Team owner and driver Dan Gardner was the fastest Touring Car in MotoIQ's Project Scion tC, with Stout taking second position in its sister car.  Neither driver had ever driven the course before, with both of the DG Spec drivers coming up to speed quickly on the unforgiving Long Beach street course.

TORRANCE, Calif. — This past weekend, at the World Challenge season opener in front of an estimated 150,000 fans, the DG-Spec Scion road racing team proved again that Scion is the real deal, even at the top of the pro ladder.  Three podiums, and five awards of distinction were racked up by drivers Robert Stout and Dan Gardner, driving the number 18 and 36 DG-Spec Scion tC Touring Cars, respectively.

With our cage and safety equipment done on our Scion TC race car, it is time to do stuff to increase performance!  The suspension on a road race car is critical for it to be competitive and we need to so some serious stuff on our car.  Since our Scion TC is being built in its first stage for NASA's PTD class, we have some interesting factors that we have to consider.
