TKi Motorsport Prepares S60 for 2010 NASA GTS3 Season
Lakeville, CT: March 30, 2010:
With the 2010 NASA Pro Racing GTS3 racing season less than a month away, TKi Motorsport returned to Lime Rock Park the past weekend for
meticulous and intense testing.
The 2009 season was exciting for TKi, however with numerous exclusive marketing partners signed, along with new technical changes to the S60 Challenge race car, TKi could not be more
ready and well prepared for 2010.
“We had an outstanding weekend of testing, and much of it is due to the efficient and enthusiastic crew. We were able to run numerous laps to gather data, and make adjustments
accordingly. We are in a fantastic position for the upcoming season, and look forward to the challenge for the championship this season,” says Josh Koropchak, Driver and Team Principal
for TKi Motorsport.

TKi Motorsport Scores Podium Finishes at NJMP Race Weekend
Millville, NJ: April 18, 2010: TKi Motorsport races to podium finishes during the NASA Pro Racing season opener at New Jersey Motorsports Park Lightning Circuit.
The fifteen-minute qualifying session Saturday morning saw nearly fifty cars on the 1.9 mile race circuit. Being first to grid, driver Josh Koropchak had nothing but open track. His flying lap landed him in third position for the race start. With the drop of the green flag, Koropchak found himself on the rear bumper of the second place car. However, due to increased traffic, he was forced off track, unfortunately falling to eighth place. Later, while charging hard through the last turn of the circuit, a car in class spun out on the front straight. With racers trying to avoid the spinning car, Koropchak bolted through an opening in the chaos, advancing nearly three positions. Crossing the finish line, Koropchak of TKi Motorsport raced his way back to third for podium contention.
For Sunday’s race, Koropchak once again battled fiercely with class competitors. With a smaller pack for this race, there was less traffic, however being mixed with faster and slower classes, Koropchak once again had to weave his way through, planning every turn in advance. At the end of the final race, Koropchak and the team clinched second place.
“Josh’s driving has strongly matured since last season. With the forty-five laps logged during Friday’s practice session, coupled with the two, thirty-plus lap races, track time is paying off considerably. His ability to execute passes and plan maneuvers in advance has improved significantly.” said Ricky Marrero, Team Strategist for TKi Motorsport.
The TKi Motorsport Volvo of Josh Koropchak will appear at New Jersey Motorsports Park Lightning Circuit on May 28, May 29, and May 30.
