RRT Racing Prepares for Round 6 of the Koni Challenge at Watkins Glen

RRT Racing will compete in the sixth round of the 2009 season of the Grand-Am Koni Challenge on June 4-5th. This round of the highly competitive road racing series will be held in conjunction with the Grand-Am Rolex Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen.

After a successful debut as the top finishing BMW in class at the Garden State 250 at New Jersey Motorsports Park last month, RRT Racing has continued to develop their 2009 BMW 328i. Barry Battle, team principal and driver, commented, “We wanted to leverage our suspension expertise and continue to develop the e90 platform.” He continued, “New Jersey taught us a lot and it is time to further refine the handling of the racecar.”

The storied track at Watkins Glen represents particular challenges for the teams competing in this series. The fast banked turns, abundant barriers, and lack of run off room make it a track that truly demands the constant attention of the drivers. At The Glen, Michael Dayton and Battle will once again pilot the RRT Racing entry.

The two and half hour endurance race will commence Friday afternoon at 4pm with both the GS and ST Koni Challenge classes competing. Speed Channel’s TV coverage of the event begins at 2pm on June 14th.

RRT Racing and its partners – Tischer BMW’s GetBMWParts.com, OG Racing, DiffsOnline.com, Vorshlag Motorsports, e90Fanatics.com, Schroth Safety Equipment, The Children’s Inn at NIH, and BrakeSwap.com; look forward to another exciting and successful weekend.
