Bodymotion Racing focuses on the work at hand as it heads to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park with three consecutive victories

OCEAN TOWNSHIP, N.J., July 5, 2016 – Bodymotion Racing is thrilled that it enters Saturday’s IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge (ICTSC) race at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (CTMP) in Bowmanville, Ontario as the winner of the series’ last three races, including last Saturday’s race at Watkins Glen International in Watkins Glen, N.Y.

But the team says it isn’t focused on results or points. Instead, it will continue to concentrate on the work ethic that got it into this enviable position – a dedication to learn and improve as much as possible – and hope the results and the points will continue to follow.
Bodymotion, a full-service automotive repair facility headquartered in Ocean Township, N.J., has one Canadian on its driver roster for Saturday’s 2.5-hour race that begins at 12:25 p.m. Eastern time. Rookie Cameron Cassels of Coldstream, British Columbia, shares the team’s No. 12 Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport in the Grand Sport (GS) class with Trent Hindman of Wayside, N.J. Cassels hasn’t even seen the 2.459-mile, 10-turn road course formerly known as Mosport before, but Hindman has raced there many times in the past, including winning some events enroute to the 2011 Ontario Formula Ford Championship.
Last Saturday was also a big day for the team’s two drivers who campaign a 2012 Porsche Cayman, No. 31, in the Street Tuner (ST) class, as Jason Rabe of Monticello, N.Y. and Devin Jones of Mooresville, N.C. posted their first podium finish of the season at Watkins Glen. Like Hindman, they competed in this race at CTMP last year too, although they weren’t co-drivers then. Rabe had the best results of the three last year with a seventh-place finish in class, but Jones holds the track record for the ST class when he won the pole with a time of 1:32.626 and an average speed of 95.571 miles per hour. The Bodymotion No. 31 they’re sharing this year carries support from Delaware Investments and VeriStor, among other companies.
After two 45-minute practice sessions at 9:30 a.m. and 1:05 p.m. (EDT) on Friday, qualifying will be held at 5:10 p.m. (ST) and 5:40 p.m. (GS) Friday. Fans can walk the grid at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday before the race starts. It supports the Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix presented by Hawk Performance, a WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race on Sunday that is only 10 minutes longer than Saturday’s ICTSC race. 
On Sunday morning, July 10, fans can also watch FOX Sports 1’s broadcast of last Saturday’s ICTSC race at Watkins Glen, N.Y. from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. EDT.
Fox Sports 1’s broadcast of Saturday’s race at CTMP is scheduled to air Sunday, July 17 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. All times are Eastern.

Driver pre-race quotes follow: 
Cameron Cassels:
Q:Do you expect a big crowd of friends and family at CTMP to watch you race? Does it add more pressure to you to race in front of your hometown fans?
“My four children, my brother and his girlfriend, and finally, my niece and nephew along with my wife will be there. Saying that though, I do not expect it to add any more pressure to perform. I will be focused on learning a new track and continuing to drive hard and improving my race craft.”
Q: Do you have any ties to the Bowmanville area or Toronto in general? 
“This will be my first time here. We are eager to take in some of the sights in the area. I do have a niece and nephew near Bowmanville.”
Q: Did you celebrate after Watkins Glen, and if so, how? How did your family and friends react to your third consecutive victory?
“It was a very casual celebration with the team immediately after the race and a very quiet evening with my wife. I don’t know how much more excitement my family and friends can take with these thrilling races. Especially this last one; it was a nail biter!”
Q: Mosport is one of only three tracks in the world to have hosted Formula 1, Can-Am and IndyCar events. Mosport hosted more Can-Am races than any other track – 24. Do you ever think about the history of the tracks you’re getting to race on? 
“The history surrounding some of the tracks we visit is very humbling. I constantly have to pinch myself as I get to compete on the same tracks as some of the legends of motorsports. Racing at Mosport, in my home country in front of family, just adds to the overall excitement for me.”
Trent Hindman:
Q: How many times have you raced at CTMP, what types of cars have you driven here, and how did it go?
“I am very fortunate that we are coming into this weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park with a fair amount of experience and a good understanding of this track. Cam has never been there, but he has been doing an excellent job of being cool and calculated when it comes to learning a new circuit. For me, I spent most of the 2011 season racing with Brian Graham in the Ontario Formula Ford Championship at CTMP, where we were able to win a fair amount of races that ultimately brought us the OFFC championship!”
Q: How do you expect the track to suit the Porsche Cayman?
“I believe as a team, we try not to enter these race weekends with any expectation on how we will perform. Our mindset consists of aiming to learn more about our Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport as well as improving ourselves as a team. With that said, I imagine the high-speed, flowing nature of CTMP will suit the solid high-speed balance the Porsche seems to have quite well.”
Q: What will be the keys to a victory here?
“Historically with my own experience at CTMP, the keys to a victory will be tire management and good long-run balance. Mosport is a track that isn’t super friendly to any tire, so it is absolutely of the utmost importance to manage our Continental tires correctly to be sure we can fight for a good result at the end of the race.”
Q: What are your impressions of the track? Tell us about the speed there.
“Luckily CTMP has always treated me well! It appears to be fairly simple on paper, but in all reality it requires good feel, good car placement, and always a bit of luck to get around there quickly. Most drivers and teams will talk and focus solely on Turn 2 and how insane of a corner it is, but that’s really the nature of the entire track, which is why it is among the favorites for me!”
Jason Rabe: 
Q: How many times have you raced at Mosport, what types of cars have you driven here, and how did it go?
“I’ve only raced Mosport once; last year in the ICTSC, the same ST Porsche Cayman. I ran in the top five during my opening stint, and we finished seventh.”
Q: Now that you have a podium finish, how has it affected your confidence level?
“We knew podiums were possible before the Watkins Glen performance, but now it reassures us that more podiums are on the way!”
Q: What did you do for the Fourth of July celebration? Did you celebrate after Watkins Glen, and if so, how? How did your family and friends react to your first podium finish?
“I enjoyed spectating the WeatherTech six-hour race on Sunday and enjoyed sightseeing in the village of Watkins Glen. We had a dinner celebration after the race with family and friends. It was an emotional celebration at the podium with my mom, dad, sponsors, friends and the entire team!  It was a surreal feeling to have everyone celebrating with me at the birthplace of American road racing!”
Q: Do you ever think about the history of the tracks you’re getting to race on? 
“I’m a HUGE racing history buff, so the tracks we get to race on mean a great deal to me. I can probably tell you who drove what cars and who won a lot of the ’70s and ’80s Formula 1, IndyCar, and Can-Am races. I honestly think that ICTSC has the best road-racing schedule in North America!”
Devin Jones: 
Q: Now that you have a podium finish, how has it affected your confidence level? 
“The podium finish was huge for our team. We have had some great speed in the car all year and to put it all together with a second-place finish is very rewarding for everyone. We will keep pushing and refocus for Mosport.”
Q: Do you have any ties to the Bowmanville area or Ontario in general? 
“I always enjoy traveling north of the border to Mosport. The track is high speed and suits my strengths well. I’m looking forward to jumping back in the car after our strong result at Watkins Glen. We’re looking for one spot better this weekend.”
Q: Do you have any other stops you make when in the area? 
“The past two years our family has camped in the infield, which is a lot of fun. We enjoy driving around the track and seeing the Canadian fans, who are always supportive. They love their racing!”

HINDMAN: Monterey Debrief

April 28-May 1, 2016: Lamborghini Super Trofeo, Laguna Seca: #10 Trent Hindman, Prestige Performance, Lamborghini Paramus (PRO-AM)

April 28-May 1, 2016: Lamborghini Super Trofeo, Laguna Seca: #10 Trent Hindman, Prestige Performance, Lamborghini Paramus (PRO-AM)

Three months ago I was completely convinced that I would be a spectator for this season, and now I have just had the opportunity to partake in the busiest weekend of car racing ever in my career.

Pre-race weekend prep for me does not change entirely too much when running two different championships.

A bit more time studying data and video is absolutely necessary, but aside from that it’s business as usual.

The real fun started when the Thursday test day came around, where it was four practice sessions total – two for Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge and two for Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America.

Schedules were tight and I was constantly worried about having enough time to properly debrief with one team then run over to the other and have enough time to cover our plan for the next practice.

Needless to say I was thrilled that I was getting to drive both a Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo and a Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport, but I was most definitely worn out at the end of the day!

The whole crew at Prestige Performance/Wayne Taylor Racing along with the Bodymotion/Cassels Racing team really did their best to accommodate my tight schedule and I really can’t thank either group enough for that!

Qualifying day was much less hectic and I was happy to have some time to review data, video, and even do some driver change practice with my co-drivers in both championships.

Huge shoutout to Craig Duerson and Cameron Cassels for putting up with my constant disappearance from one camp to the other.

In recent times, qualifying day for Continental Tire Challenge has been a day where I don’t drive at all, but a huge positive of running two championships is the simple fact of more seat time.

Fortunately and unfortunately, the first 15 minute qualifier for Super Trofeo Race one was cut short by a red flag about six minutes into the session.

Luckily we were the first car out of pit lane at the start of the session, and that above all else is what gave me the opportunity to have one clear lap to put it on the pole.

Both Super Trofeo races were just one big learning experience for Craig and me. The structure of the series along with the pit lane/drive time rules are very new to both of us, and really we just wanted to keep the car in one piece while we both continue this learning process.

Race 1 was off to a great start and we were able to hold the lead overall throughout my short stint in the car.

Craig hopped in at about the 25-minute mark and had an excellent drive to bring us home 4th overall, 2nd in class – a fantastic way to kick off our season.

Race 2 was definitely a bit more nerve racking for both of us. Craig had qualified 4th in class, 10th overall and had moved up to 8th by the time he came in for our driver change.

Unfortunately we had lost a bit of time on pit lane and that had put us quite a way back from the leaders.

I had no idea at that time, so I just tried my best to do what I always do; put together a smooth, clean stint and drive like hell!

The radio was mostly silent for my stint until it was looking like we really had a shot at catching and passing the leader of the Pro-Am class before the end of the race.

We made the move for the lead with about 5 minutes remaining and we never looked back. That secured the first Super Trofeo win for Craig and me, along with a solid 3rd place finish overall… not bad for a bunch of rookies!

A massive thank you to the entire Lamborghini Paramus/Prestige Performance/Wayne Taylor Racing Team (boy, that’s a lot) for their weeks of hard work in preparing the cars and giving us two seriously great cars for race day.

One pole position, a second place in class, a win in class with an overall podium, and not to mention a second GS win in a row really made this a weekend to remember.

It was a great feeling hopping on the long flight back to New Jersey knowing that all of the hard work and preparation had paid off in a big way this time, but as soon as that flight landed it was back to work figuring out how we will go about achieving these results again.

Fall-Line Motorsports re-signs Hindman for CTSCC in 2014

Buffalo Grove, IL – Fall-Line Motorsports continues to build their Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge team and has signed another talented driver for the 2014 season.
Young standout, Trent Hindman, will be returning to Fall-Line and will compete in his first full-season of GS competition in one of the team’s BMW M3s.

Hindman, who turned 18 this past fall, hails from New Jersey and competed in five CTSCC races in 2013. At his first-ever professional sports car race in his career, which took place at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Hindman qualified third and finished 4th. He scored 2 top-ten finishes, 2 top-fives, 1 podium and 1 pole position, for an average finish of 5.2 in 2013.

Hindman came up through the open-wheel ranks, starting in karting as a youngster then transitioning to cars via the Skip Barber Series’, Formula Ford 1600 in Canada, and the USF2000 Series in 2012. He made the shift to sportscars just this year and competed in SCCA with Fall-Line in addition to his professional program.
HIndman’s co-driver and sponsors will be announced ahead of the first official event of 2014, the Roar Before the ROLEX 24 at Daytona International Speedway in early January.

Trent Hindman: “I have to say that I am incredibly excited to be back with Fall-Line! Being able to return for the 2014 season and having the chance to work with a great team and some of the best drivers in the U.S. is truly a privilege. I am very happy to be continuing my relationship with Fall-Line and I’m especially looking forward to having another great season with these guys! Just a huge thank you goes out to Michael Harvey, Mark Boden, my parents, and my partners for making this all possible and for giving me a fantastic opportunity. I am really looking forward to getting this show on the road in Daytona!”

Michael Harvey, Fall-Line Motorsports Team Manager: “We are very excited to welcome Trent back for 2014. He is without doubt a unique talent and to have the opportunity to continue the development path we started last year is very special. Trent just adds to the strength in driving talent we have for 2014 as we look to take the Fall-Line BMWs to victory.”

USF2000 – Summer Vacation Over for Hindman

Wayside, N.J., July 31 – There are summer vacations and then there are summer vacations. While Trent Hindman’s senior year at Ocean Township High School doesn’t begin until September 5th, his open-wheel education picks up after a six-week break this weekend at Mid-Ohio Sport Car Course, for Round 6 and 7 of the 2012 Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda.

“I can’t wait to get back into the car”, said Hindman from his Wayside, N.J. home. “I’m not used to being out of a race car this long. I spent a week in Florida with the Capes (Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing) a few weeks ago and spent some time around the cars, but there is no substitute for being behind the wheel.”

After a challenging start to the season at Sebring International Raceway in March, Hindman has reeled off three consecutive Top 10 finishes between St. Petersburg and Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis to climb to 7th in the championship. Now after a 10-week break, the USF2000 Championship finishes its season with a flourish of four weekends (9 races) in eight weeks.

“The rest of the season is going to be hectic; especially starting the school year between Road America and Baltimore, but we’re going to four great tracks so it will all be worthwhile.”

Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course

The Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda heads to Lexington, Ohio this weekend to support a twin-bill of the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Challenge for the American Le Mans Series Presented by Tequila Patron, and the Honda Indy 200 for the IZOD IndyCar Series. Trent Hindman participated in a USF2000 test earlier this season at Mid-Ohio, and last raced at the track in 2010 with the Skip Barber Race Series.

“Mid-Ohio is a really cool, technical track. It has a mix of high-speed and low-speed corners and many of them are off-camber. The track always produces great racing for cars like these. It’s going to be a great show.”

Drivers hit the track the first official session of the weekend Friday morning at 8:00 a.m. Eastern for Practice. Follow the action with Live Timing and Scoring at, and follow the action semi-live on Twitter by following @altemus_prime.

The Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda is also featured in the “Mazda Motorsports Hour” on the Discovery Velocity network. Highlights of the Mid-Ohio and Baltimore rounds of the USF2000 championship will be broadcast on Saturday, October 6th at noon Eastern. Check with your cable or satellite provider to see if you get Velocity.

USF2000 – Hindman Scores Top 5 at Indianapolis

Clermont, Ind., May 30 – Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing driver Trent Hindman scored his third Top 5 finish in a row in his first ever oval race at the annual Night Before the 500 at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis. The finish capped a weekend that saw the Wayside, N.J. driver lead the Indy Lights field around the nearby Indianapolis Motor Speedway in front of the largest crowd he’s ever driven in front of.

Hindman and the other USF2000 drivers braved 90 plus degree air temperatures and a blazing sun Saturday afternoon for qualifying. Based on a random draw, Hindman was in the last third of the qualifying line when he rolled out for his two-lap attempt. Clocking in with a 45.216 sec. (109.236 MPH) lap, he qualified fourth and, because of the unique nature of Lucas Oil Raceway, started on the inside of Row 2, next to third qualifying Roman Lagudi.

“The car felt really good in qualifying”, said Hindman in pit lane after his attempt. “We were quick in Friday testing but chased an issue in Practice earlier on Saturday. Once we figured out what it was, the car came alive.”

At the start, Hindman dropped into line behind Lagudi and prepared to stay with the leaders until later in the run. His plan worked for just over a lap before an incident in Turn 2 on Lap 2 took out eight cars and required an extended caution period. Soon after the restart, Hindman lost a position to the charging Scott Anderson and spent the balance of the race getting comfortable with the art of oval racing. Due to time constraints and the extended caution, the race length was reduced from 75 laps to 46, so while Hindman held off Luca Forgeois for his third Top 5 in a row, he ran out of time to challenge the cars in front of him.

“My car started out good; as good as it was during Qualifying. As the race progressed and I got more comfortable, it kept getting better. (Hindman ran his quickest lap on Lap 41 of 46) With more laps I’m sure I could have moved closer to the front and perhaps joined my teammates on the podium.”

The fifth place finish moves Trent Hindman up to seventh in USF2000 points ahead of the next event, August 3-5 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, after which the season will finish in a flourish with four events (nine races) in the span of seven weeks, all on road course or street circuits.

“I’m happy to get my first oval race under my belt and to bring the car home in one piece, but I can’t wait to get back to turning left and right again.”

Next up

Before he returns to USF2000 in August, Trent Hindman will compete in two weekends of Formula Renault BARC racing with Cliff Dempsey Racing, starting with a double-header at Thruxton in Hampshire the weekend of June 16-17.


USF2000 – Hindman Heads to Indy

Wayside, N.J., May 24 – Last Memorial Day weekend, Trent Hindman entered the fifth and sixth rounds of the 2011 BFGoodrich/Skip Barber National Presented by Mazda at Lime Rock Park with one pole and four top-five finishes. He ended the weekend third in points with his second pole of the season and two podium finishes; including his first Skip Barber National race win. The weekend changed Hindman’s season, as he went on to score three wins and six pole positions on his way to second in the championship while earning “Rookie of the Year” honors.

After a slow start to this season, now Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing driver Trent Hindman enters the fifth round of the 2012 Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda ninth in points with a pair of Top 5 finishes. As the series gets back to action as part of the annual “Night Before the 500” at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis, Hindman hopes a good result in the season’s only oval race will jumpstart his campaign ahead of the series’ second mid-season break.

Hindman returns to the states and USF2000 after a weekend at Rockingham Motor Speedway in England, where he scored 11th place 6th place finishes with Cliff Dempsey Racing in Rounds 4 and 5 of the Protyre Formula Renault BARC Championship.

Before Hindman can take the wheel of his USF2000 ride Friday afternoon, he will slide into the cockpit of one of his rides from last year, a Formula Skip Barber, to help lead the Indy Lights field on its pace lap during Friday’s Firestone Freedom 100. Hindman will join teammate Spencer Pigot, who will drive his USF2000 car, and Team Pelfrey driver Jack Hawksworth, who will pilot his Star Mazda car around the 2.5-mile Indianapolis Motor Speedway as part of the Mazda Road to Indy display.

Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis

Standing out a bit like a sore thumb in the 2012 USF2000 schedule is the 11/16ths of a mile oval a few miles west of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the town of Clermont. Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis is the sole oval on this year’s schedule and as such provides a unique set of challenges to a field of drivers that for most of will be their first time racing on anything but a road course.

In the official test earlier in the month, Hindman was within two-tenths of a second of the quickest driver in combined results, his Cape Motorsport with Wayne Taylor Racing teammate Matthew Brabham.

USF2000 – Hindman Rebounds at St. Petersburg

Silverstone, England, March 27 – One of the things said to separate “elite” football quarterbacks from the rest is poor short-term memory; the ability to quickly put a bad play or mistake out of their mind and immediately return to playing at a high level. For a race car driver, the ability to quickly put a bad result behind you and drive at a high level is just as important. Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing driver Trent Hindman demonstrated that elite capability this past weekend at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg; bouncing back quickly from a pair of disappointing results the week prior at Sebring to score his first Top 5 finishes in USF2000 competition and showing the field that despite the early setbacks, you can’t keep “The Hitman” down for long.

Round 3

While his Cape Motorsports teammates Spencer Pigot and Matthew Brabham topped the time charts in both Practice sessions, the Wayside, N.J. driver spent both sessions feeling out his car and learning the temporary street circuit. When qualifying rolled around, traffic and red flags limited opportunities for an open track, and when the checkered flag fell Hindman found himself ninth with a 1:14.155 lap, just under a second behind his teammates up on the front row.

With Sebring at least in the back of his mind Hindman drove a conservative race; staying out of trouble and taking advantage of others’ misfortunes to move up. Hindman inherited eighth place when Timmy Megenbier dropped out with an electrical issue, and seventh place when Scott Hargrove got loose and tagged the wall in Turn 10. After the Hargrove incident was cleaned up, racing continued and Hindman settled into seventh place. Laps later, Neil Alberico and Matthew DiLeo tangled, allowing Hindman to advance two more positions. At the finish, he held off the Andretti Autosport duo of Shelby Blackstock and Thomas McGregor for his first Top 5 finish of the season.

“After Sebring, just finishing the race was huge. Passing opportunities were few and far between so to gain four positions from where I started in a field this competitive is good. That I gained those positions through attrition adds a touch of irony to the day.”

Round 4

Sunday morning broke damp, and while the morning warm up by the IZOD IndyCar Series did contribute to a dry racing line, conditions were still slick when the field took the green flag at 9:15. From seventh on the grid, Hindman passed Roman Lagudi and spent the early portion of the race fending off Shelby Blackstock for seventh as Neil Alberico worked his way through the field toward the front.

When Alberico ran out of room while making an attempt to pass Luigi Biangardi, collecting Scott Hargrove in the process, Hindman found himself on the gearbox of the lead pack of Pigot, Brabham and Matthew DiLeo as the field circulated under the full course caution. Although DiLeo and Hindman could both smell blood in the water after Brabham’s car lost its front wing late, neither we able to capitalize and while Pigot and Brabham collected their second 1-2 finish of the weekend, Hindman was content to take his second Top 5 of the weekend, a season best fourth.

“The track was just damp enough that you couldn’t go even slightly off the racing line without risking losing grip. Passing was tough so it was impressive to see Neil come through the field the way he did. I’m also glad that I kept my nose clean for both races and that I was able to bring the car home in one piece for Dominic and Nick.”

With the fifth on Saturday and the fourth on Sunday, Hindman vaulted from 22nd to 9thin Championship Class points. There was little time to celebrate as Hindman quickly made his way to the airport in Tampa to catch a flight to Newark in order to make an overnight flight to London Heathrow for a Formula Renault BARC open test and media day at Silverstone.

Next up

With the exception of a couple open tests, the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda is on an extended Spring Break until The Night Before the 500 at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis on May 26, the lone oval race of the season. Between now and then, Trent Hindman will head back to the United Kingdom to compete in the Protyre Formula Renault BARC Championship with Cliff Dempsey Racing, with triple-header events April 7-8 at Snetterton and May 19-20 at Rockingham Motor Speedway. Live timing and scoring information will be forthcoming.
