June 15, 2007 - Savannah, Georgia – Round Six of The Inter-America’s Challenge Is Announced.
Thanks to the SCCA Buccaneer Region, the American GT Professional Road Racing Association announced today that Roebling Road was confirmed for September 7th & 8th, 2007, for the First Annual “Rumble At The Road” professional AGT race as the AGTRRA makes its “swing south” in search of increased GT1 team participation and renewed AGT team involvement. The SE Division is home territory to many top GT1 teams, and in an effort to gain more participation from these SE teams, AGTRRA COO Tony Febles and his crew have made plans for rounding out the 2007 season with as many races in the SE as they can fit prior to their departure for the Islands for the November races. With a focus on developing strong SCCA ties and relationships for 2008 and beyond, the 2008 race schedule is being planned now, in order to facilitate strong SE division venues being incorporated into the 2008 race calendar. Roebling Road is one of the most historic permanent road race circuits in the U.S., having first opened in 1959, it is recognized as one of the fastest and most challenging courses in the country. Roebling is a “driver’s” track with its nine distinctive turns and an over-all length of 2.02 miles – there is no better rush than accelerating out of nine onto the front straightaway and letting “those ponies hunt” – as the big bore V8’s stretch their legs and run for the checkered flag. “The AGTRRA is proud to add Roebling Road to its schedule in 2007 and we hope to make the “Rumble At The Road” and annual event” stated Febles. The AGT will be running a modified twin race format this weekend at the “rumble” – featuring practice / qualifying and a 20 lap race on Saturday with a Qualifying Session and 20 lap race on Sunday as the series drivers compete to take home the honors and valuable series points in the hunt for the series over-all championship title. So step up – strap in and get ready to rumble – as the AGT takes the track on September 7th and 8th, 2007.
