Prestige Performance has confirmed a return to the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America series with an all-new driver lineup for its pair of Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeos.

IMSA rising star Trent Hindman is set for a full-season campaign alongside Craig Duerson in the No. 10 car, which will be entered in the Pro-Am class, with Shinya Michimi set to take over the No. 1 entry in Pro.

Hindman, the 2014 Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge champion, is coming off another strong season in GS class competition, scoring a win alongside Ashley Freiburg in last year’s season finale at Road Atlanta.

Two-time Super Trofeo North America champion Kevin Conway, as well as former Formula One driver Enrique Bernoldi will not return to the team, following a strong debut season that included two Pro category wins and a second place finish in the drivers’ championship.

Prestige will again partner with Wayne Taylor Racing for operational and logistical support for the program.

The fourth season of Super Trofeo North America kicks off at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on April 29-May 1.

Bodymotion Racing Takes First Win for Cayman GT4 Clubsport

Trent Hindman and Cameron Cassels won Friday’s Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Sebring 150, in Bodymotion Racing’s new Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport, marking the first international victory for the new Cayman.

Scott Maxwell had led the Grand Sport field for the first part of the race, in his Ford Shelby GT350R-C, but a slow pitstop denied the Multimatic Motorsports the victory, and instead Maxwell and Billy Johnson finished second.

Hindman passed Matt Plumb for the lead out of turn 17 with half an hour on the clock, and came home to finish 13.484 seconds in the lead. Matt and Hugh Plumb finished third in the Rum Bum Racing Porsche 997, behind Multimatic.

Bodymotion’s victory comes after the team missed the season-opening BMW Performance 200 at Daytona in January. It was Hindman’s first race in a Porsche, while only the second IMSA start for Cassels.

“Never in a million years did I think we could pull off a win in the first race for our new Clubsport,” said Hindman. “We have to keep our foot on the gas and hopefully we can keep this result going forward.”

Paul Holton and Pierre Kleinubing for Compass360 Racing, and Tyler McQuarrie with Till Bechtolscheimer for CJ Wilson Racing completed the top five finishers in Grand Sport.

CRG-I Do Borrow won in Street Tuner, with Sarah Cattaneo and Owen Trinkler behind the wheel of its Honda Civic Si. Trinkler assumed the lead with 55 minutes of the two hours, thirty minutes race remaining.

At the start, it had been Chad Gilsinger leading for HART in a similar Civic Si, but he finished second in the car he shares with Michael Valiante.

In third position at the line was the BimmerWorld Racing BMW 328i driven by Tyler Cooke and James Clay. The car lost its pole position to an engine change after qualifying, so started at the back. “We didn’t like one of the cylinders, so we decided to change engine even through it meant moving to the back,” said Clay. 

Cattaneo, who started 14th, is the most experienced female driver in CTSC. She now joins Ashley Freiberg as the leading female winner in the series, with two victories. Meanwhile, this is Trinkler’s sixth win, and he sits second on the list of most series starts, at 119.

“We were under the radar all week, and we barely cracked the top five at any time,” Trinkler said. “It was all about being consistent. We worked all week concentrating on longer runs on older tires, and if you look back at the lap times, you’ll see our car barely moved a second all weekend and during the race.”

Both the Murillo Racing Porsche Cayman of Jeff Mosing, and Liam Dwyer’s Freedom Autosport Mazda MX-5, pitted early-race from the ST win contention. The Porsche had a damaged gear linkage cable, while the Mazda suffered from suspension damage.

Steven McAleer and Chad McCumbee finished fourth in the #25 Freedom Autosport Mazda, while Jason Rabe and Devin Jones’ Bodymotion Cayman was fifth in ST

A single full course caution came out during the race, when Sam Adams went off track mid-race in his Rebel Rock Racing Porsche Cayman. On the final lap, Mark Pombo collided with Valiante. This didn’t impact Valiante’s finishing position of second, but did damage Pombo’s MINI JCW.

The next Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge race will be at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on April 30.

Hindman: “I’m a Very Lucky Guy for What I’ve Got”

In December, Trent Hindman had no ride, no budget, and no prospects.

Two months later, he was standing in victory lane in Sebring after claiming the Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport’s maiden win with co-driver Cameron Cassels.

It’s been a wild ride for the 20-year-old New Jersey native, a former BMW Junior driver.

Now armed with a full-season contract with Bodymotion Racing to contest the full Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge season, plus a deal to run the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America series with Prestige Performance, Hindman believes he has found the continuity he’s been searching for his entire career.

That career began racing dirt bikes in the Northeast at the age of four. From there he transitioned to karting and into the junior single-seater formulae in the U.S, Canada, and Europe.

Despite some success, including the 2011 Team USA Scholarship and a fifth-place result in USF2000 in 2012, Hindman saw the doors to the open-wheel world close on him for very familiar reasons.

“For us moving forward and looking at the big picture, my parents and I realized that the open-wheel route wasn’t the most feasible for me,” Hindman told Sportscar365.

“Not because of results, but because of budget. It’s very expensive if you aren’t constantly winning your way up, and that’s a very tough thing to do.”

Instead, he went sports car racing in 2013, first in SCCA competition, then with a partial-season deal with Fall-Line Motorsports.

Paired with Charles Espenlaub, Hindman finished on the podium at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and qualified his car on pole in the season-finale at Lime Rock Park.

“It was a good dynamic from the get go, and we were able to get a program together with them for 2014 to run,” he said.

Hindman was teamed with John Edwards for the full 2014 season, but getting the deal to line up required some sacrifice.

“Our existing partners were pretty worn out from supporting us from the early days in karting,” he said.

“My parents actually sold their house so that we could run GS. That was a massive, massive, massive commitment from them.”

Their commitment put Hindman in position to win the 2014 Continental Tire Challenge GS championship, and his career seemed poised to take off from there.

“I was fortunate to be a part of the BMW Junior program for all of 2015,” Hindman said.

“I was invited for a series of physical tests and the shootout that they put on, and was one of the final four guys that they brought on for the year.

“I got to run the 24 hours of Zolder which was a great learning experience. Got to run the 12 Hours of Brno as well, and we ended up winning.

“After that, unfortunately I found out I wouldn’t be a BMW Motorsport junior again, and I really had no more involvement with BMW.”

That news came late in the off-season in December. Only at the 11th hour did the deal with Bodymotion come together, in addition to the chance to race in Super Trofeo.

“Two months ago I thought I’d be going to school and I’d be a spectator, but now I find myself with an overload of work!” said Hindman, who will also be coaching Team Pelfrey’s USF2000 drivers this year.

“I can’t complain because I look back and I see a load of guys that are still pounding the pavement, looking for something to drive.

“And these are guys that are more than deserving of a ride. For a short time there, I knew what that was like, and got a crash course in how the business of racing works in all reality.”

The Bodymotion team missed the Continental Tire Challenge season opener at Daytona — Cassels had family commitments — but Hindman and Cassels showed the paddock that they are a championship contender with the win at Sebring.

“We were never expecting a result like the one we got [at Sebring], but either way I’m just happy because we know we have more to go development-wise between myself, Cameron, and the car,” Hindman said.

“We’re happy we started off the way we did. At the end of the day, I’m a very lucky guy for what I’ve got.”

BMW Motorsport Junior Hindman Finishes 2015 Season in the Strongest Way

Oct. 13, 2015 — The 2015 racing season could not have ended better for BMW Motorsport Junior Trent Hindman. On October 2, the 20-year old co-drove the No. 46 Fall-Line Motorsport BMW M3 to the overall victory in the season-ending Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge race at Road Atlanta. It was the first win of the year for Hindman and Ashley Freiberg. After winning the Grand Sport class driver’s title last season as Fall-Line’s starting driver (co-driver John Edwards), the Road Atlanta win was his first as the closing driver and the race ran on one of the wettest weekends on record.
“This was the most challenging race I had to finish all year,” said Hindman. “The track conditions were so bad, it was unbelievably wet and I was hydroplaning everywhere.”
Immediately after the race Hindman was off. Back to England for a few days at the I Zone simulator at Silverstone before heading to the Czech Republic and the Brno Circuit for the October 10th 12-hour race with his fellow BMW Motorsport Juniors Victor Bouveng, Nick Cassidy and instructor Dirk Adorf. Driving the No. 174 Walkenhorst Motorsport BMW M235i Racing, the quartet did not disappoint, winning the SP3 class against faster competitors.
Hindman continued, “I cannot thank everybody at BMW Motorsport enough for giving me the incredible opportunity to drive with Dirk, Nick, Victor, and Louis (Zolder 24). We knew winning would be a challenge because of how fast the other cars in the SP3 class are, but the brilliant strategy and hard work by the whole Walkenhorst Motorsport crew along with very clean, consistent driving is what did it for us. I was honored to just have the chance to be an American racing overseas while flying the BMW colors at the same time. My first win in Europe and hopefully not the last!
The CTSC race from Road Atlanta will be broadcast on FOX Sports 1 on Oct. 18 from 12:30 – 2:30 p.m. ET.

FALL-LINE WINS CTSC SEASON-ENDER IN WILD FASHION

Buffalo Grove, IL (October 5, 2015)- Fall-Line Motorsports drivers Ashley Freiberg and Trent Hindman finally found themselves in victory lane in 2015 as they won the last race of the year in the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge series in their BMW M3. The race was a mix of conditions from damp to drenched but Hindman was able to hang on and took the checkered flag just 1.1 seconds ahead of 2nd place.
Freiberg started the race in eighth position as qualifying was rained out and the grid was set by points. The team opted to start on dry tires believing a dry line would appear as the rain had stopped, but as the green fell so did the rain. Ashley drove a great stint but the rain persisted so they had to switch to wets after just seven laps.  Ashley then drove a sensational stint as she fought to remain on the lead lap. Under the next yellow, around the 35 minute mark, the team opted to pit again for fuel only. Ashley then moved up

to P2 in transitional conditions before coming in for a driver change. Hindman took on two rain tires and fuel as the rain continued and in “horrid conditions” Trent marched to the front and a lead he would never relinquish. Under intense pressure and with poor visibility Trent brought the Fall-Line Motorsports BMW to victory lane after 2.5-hours of intense racing in very changeable conditions. He held off Robin Liddell and brought the team their first victory of the year to end an up-and-down season.
The returning GS champions finish P8 this year in overall standings after not being classified in 2 events due to not meeting minimum driver time.
#46 IHG Rewards Club/ Trim-Tex Drywall Products/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW driver quotes:
Trent Hindman: “I am absolutely thrilled that we were finally able to bring home a win! I feel like we really owe this one to the whole Fall-Line Motorsports crew because they worked tirelessly all year. Even when times got tough they kept pushing on, so this one is certainly for the guys. Overall that was one of the most difficult stints I’ve ever had. The track conditions were terrible, visibility was poor at best, and the rain was getting heavier towards the end of the race. Robin (Liddell) was putting some tremendous pressure on us but I was not very worried; the Trim-Tex, IHG Rewards Club, Top 1 Oil BMW M3 was excellent in those wet conditions. We had our fair share of tough luck this year but I cannot be happier and more thankful that we finished off the 2015 CTSC season off by bringing home the W!”
 
Ashley Freiberg: “The 2015 season could not have ended any better. The win was a long time coming, but it was worth the wait. I honestly had no idea that I had gotten us up to second place before handing the car to Trent, I was just on a mission to pass as many cars as possible! We as a team were all making huge risks, including myself with some of the sketchy passes I was making in the highspeed esses in the rain, but I knew I had to put it all on the line to have a shot at the win. Great job by the crew with their flawless pit stops and strategy, and to Trent who held off Robin for the last hour of the race! I am so glad that we could give BMW, IHG Rewards Club, Fall-Line Motorsports, and Trim-Tex the results they deserve for the amount of support they have given us this year! I am just so thankful for everything and that they have given us the opportunity to do what we love and to do it well. Now I am focused on putting a ride together for 2016, so there won’t be an off-season for me!”
Michael Harvey, Team Manager: “A great way to wrap up 2015 for the Fall-Line Motorsports, IHG Rewards Club, Trim-Tex, BMW. In extremely tricky conditions both Trent and Ashley saved their best for last. Starting on slicks in the rain Ashley drove a masterful first few laps until Mother Nature won and we were forced to change to wets. Up against the best she drove an excellent extended stint to bring the car to Trent who then proceeded to drive the race of his life and demonstrate why he is the 2014 GS champion. After almost going a lap down early, in typical Fall-Line fashion we fought back to then lead the last hour and this was a superb way to cap off 2015. A huge thank you goes out to our amazing partners IHG Rewards Club, Trim-Tex, Top 1 Oil and BMW. Without them this would not be possible. Last but not least the Fall-Line Motorsports group deserve this win, they are true champions and great credit goes to them for always challenging themselves to be the best they can be.”

FALL-LINE HEADS TO SEASON FINALE AT ROAD ATLANTA IN CTSC

Buffalo Grove, IL (October 1, 2015)- Fall-Line Motorsports will compete in the final round of the 2015 Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge (CTSC) this weekend as part of the Petit Le Mans race weekend at Road Atlanta. The 2015 champion will be crowned on Friday, October 2 and sadly, the #46 Fall-Line BMW is not in contention to defend their 2014 Grand Sport Championship.
Drivers Ashley Freiberg and Trent Hindman have had a trying season but still managed to score seven top-ten finishes and five top-fives including two podiums in 2015. This race weekend could potentially be the last with the BMW M3 E92 chassis which has served as the race car of choice for Fall-Line in CTSC since 2009. The team finished second at last year’s race on their way to winning the Championship and the BMW has been historically very strong at the 2.54-mile track.
#46 IHG Rewards Club/ Trim-Tex Drywall Products/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW driver quotes:
Trent Hindman: “It’s pretty amazing to think that 2015 is coming to an end. The year went by unbelievably quick, but luckily we still have one more excellent opportunity to challenge for a good result this weekend. I love Road Atlanta, and our Fall-Line, Trim-Tex, IHG Rewards Club, Top 1 Oil M3 was very strong here last year. I always look forward to getting back to work and this weekend will be business as usual, but we have only one objective – win.”
Ashley Freiberg: “I can’t believe we have already come to the last race of the season, it has gone by so fast! I have always enjoyed racing at Road Atlanta and am looking forward to this week! We should be strong here, and it looks like there could be a chance of rain, which I always enjoy racing in as it equals out the playing field! Regardless of the weather, it’s time to bring our IHG Rewards Club/ Trim-Tex BMW home a win!”
Michael Harvey, Team Manager: “It isgreat to be back at Road Atlanta where the Fall-Line Motorsports BMW clinched the CTSC championship last year. Although we are not in championship contention this year, the IHG Rewards Club / Trim-Tex BMW is definitely gunning for victory to cap off the season. Trent and Ashley have driven very well this year and their growth as drivers has been remarkable to watch. A huge thank you to all at Fall-Line Motorsports, IHG Rewards Club, Trim-Tex and BMW for their unconditional support this season.”
Qualifying takes place Thursday, October 1 at 4:45p ET. The 2.5-hour race will take place Friday, October 2 at 12:15p ET and will be streamed live on IMSA.com.

DISAPPOINTING FINISH FOR FALL-LINE AT COTA

Buffalo Grove, IL (September 23, 2015) – Fall-Line Motorsports drivers Ashley Freiberg and Trent Hindman were hoping to repeat the 2014 for victory for the CTSC team at Circuit of the Americas (COTA) this past weekend but luck was not on their side and the duo started and finished the race in seventh position. With only one race remaining in the 2015 season, time is running out for the reigning Championship-winning team as the series travels to Road Atlanta in just over one week.
Freiberg started the race from seventh position and was running eighth before pitting. Hindman got in the car with 1.5 hours remaining in the race and made it up to P4 with just 35 minutes to go. He was given a drive-through penalty for avoidable contact as he was chasing down the Camaros and Mustang. Track temperatures reached over 100 degrees and driving conditions inside the car were stifling. Hindman brought the #46 BMW M3 home in P7.
#46 IHG Rewards Club/ Trim-Tex Drywall Products/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW driver quotes:
Trent Hindman: “I’m really proud of the Fall-Line Motorsports crew and the effort they put in all weekend long, working in the 100-degree heat. At the end of the day I accept full responsibility for the contact that led to our drive through penalty, but I absolutely was pushing as hard as possible to get to the front and sometimes contact will happen. The Trim-Tex, IHG Rewards Club, Top 1 Oil BMW M3 was more than capable of getting us a good result as always. Ultimately the race didn’t go our way, but we’ll focus forward to finish the year on a high at Road Atlanta.”
Ashley Freiberg: “It was a tough race for us, but I am proud of everyone at Fall-Line for pulling through to a 7th place finish! Not the result we were looking for, but I am ready to bounce back at Road Atlanta in a couple of weeks.”
Michael Harvey, Fall-Line Motorsports Team Manager: “It was definitely a character-building day for the Fall-Line/ IHG Rewards Club/ Trim-Tex BMW. Once again we had a strong race car in which to tackle the grueling conditions. With temperatures touching 100 degrees we had great pace and efficient pit stops but unfortunately a drive through penalty for an on-track incident put pay to a podium run. Both Trent and Ashley drove great stints in trying conditions but COTA wasn’t so kind to us this year. We very much look forward to Road Atlanta in two weeks and finishing the season off with a strong run. As always a big thank you goes out to our amazing partners IHG Rewards Club, Trim-Tex and BMW.”

Lessons Learned at 24 Hours of Zolder; COTA Up Next for BMW Motorsport Junior Hindman

Sept. 1, 2015 — The 24 Hours of Zolder proved a valuable experience for BMW Motorsport Junior Trent Hindman. The 19-year-old American co-drove the No. 246 BMW M235i Racing with fellow Juniors Victor Bouveng and Louis Delétraz and head instructor Dirk Adorf, finishing 15th overall and ninth in the BMW M235i Racing Cup class.
“Overall, the experience of doing the Zolder 24 Hour as a member of the BMW Motorsport Junior Program was incredible”, said Hindman, who drove the final stint of the race. “The amount of information I learned was truly unbelievable and I cannot thank Nico, Dirk, Sebastian, and everyone from BMW Motorsport enough for the opportunity. The Walkenhorst crew was on point for the entire race. I know we worked them hard with some of the technical issues we had, but they never stopped and never gave up, which was a huge inspiration to the drivers. Our race result was not what we were hoping for, but now we know what needs to be done to win the 12 Hours of Brno in October. It was really an honor to be racing with such a great team and co-drivers, all while representing the BMW brand.”
In the first third of the race, the team lost time in the garage due to an electrical fault and seriously worn brakes. After that, the No. 246 BMW M235i Racing ran without any problems. The Juniors completed flawless stints and clocked consistent lap times as they made up many places.
Far more important than the final result was the valuable experience that the BMW Motorsport Juniors gained at the iconic circuit in Flanders. As well as the unique challenges of a 24-hour race, the youngsters also experienced how to look after the car when driving it twice round the clock, how to act as a team, and how to share a car. The four-kilometre circuit in Zolder does not have a long straight and demands maximum concentration from the drivers. Given the traffic encountered during a 24-hour race, with cars of different speeds, this was another important test for the Juniors, and one which they passed with flying colours.
Two days before he turns 20 years old on Sept. 20, Trent will be back behind the wheel of the No. 46 Fall-Line Motorsport BMW M3 at Circuit of the Americas, in Austin, Tex., for the penultimate round of the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Championship. The two-and-one-half-hour race will be streamed live on imsa.com beginning at 1:30 p.m. ET. Trent and co-driver Ashley Freiberg currently stand eighth in Grand Sport class driver points.

Trent Hindman 24 Hours of Zolder: 6 Hour Update

August 29, 2015 — With a quarter of the race in the books and darkness falling on the Belgian countryside and Circuit Zolder, Trent Hindman and his BMW Motorsport Junior teammates are getting a learning experience only a 24 hour race can throw at a driver. Electrical issues and a suspected brake problem have slowed the No. 246 Walkenhorst Motorsport BMW M235i to last in the BMW M235i Cup class, but everything seems sorted now and the car is well on pace.
Just finishing a double stint, Hindman said, “It was a mentally challenging stint with a ton of things going on. We just have had a couple of electronic issues, but we are fortunate to have a great team working hard to sort it out. The Walkenhorst team has welcomed us with open arms. My co-drivers, Dirk, Victor and Louis have be doing a fantastic job. We are helping each other and pushing each other. The M235i is fast and I think we can certainly bring it to the end which is most important.”

Hindman To Race at the 24 Hours of Zolder; Young American BMW Motorsport Junior Driver Ready For Next Challenge

August 26, 2015 — A visit to the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion as guest of BMW of North America sandwiched by a third-place finish at Road America and a fourth at VIRginia International Raceway has made for three busy weekends in a row for BMW Motorsport Junior Trent Hindman, but it’s not over yet. The 19-year old, from Wayside, NJ, is now in Belgium ready for this weekend’s 24 hour race at Circuit Zolder, in Belgium, where he will co-drive a BMW Racing Cup  M235i with fellow Junior drivers, as well as chief instructor Dirk Adorf. The race at Zolder will be the first of two races for Hindman this fall. The second will be a 12 hour race in October at Brno, in the Czech Republic.
“March was the last time I drove the M235i and I’m excited to get back behind the wheel,” stated Hindman. “I’ve had strong finishes in the last two Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge races so I feel I’m prepared for Zolder. It’s been three years since I’ve raced in Europe and I’ve been wearing a smile all week in anticipation.”
Road America saw Hindman and co-driver Ashley Freiberg back on the Grand Sport class podium with a third place finish in the No. 46 Fall-Line Motorsports BMW M3 after two disappointing races in which Trent did not get a chance to drive. Hindman had a second consecutive podium within reach at VIR until an additional late fuel stop became necessary due to a miscue in an earlier stop. He made a strong recovery to finish fourth.
“Except for that small issue I believe we’d have finished on the podium. We could take the fight to everyone. Going forward to COTA and Road Atlanta I know we’ll continue to show strength.”
The weekend in between Road America and VIR saw Trent make his first visit to the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. As a guest of BMW of North America, he was immersed in the history of the brand, spending time with drivers such as Brian Redman and becoming familiar with some of the great BMW racing cars of seasons past such as the 3.0 CSL and M1.
“Having the chance to see the history of BMW racing in the States, get to know Bill Auberlen and meet a driver like Brian Redman was very special. Everything I was able to do and see that weekend made me feel even more like part of the BMW family.”
