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.
 
Live video streaming and live timing and scoring from CTMP will be available on imsa.com and imsa.tv.

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!”
