The launch of the new Bluechem line of professional automotive chemical products in Canada also launches the start of the new racing season for GT Challenge. Bluechem Canada, will partner with the multi Championship winning team Paragon Competition for the 2013 season.
This is an inaugural re-launch for the three year old endurance road racing series. The series has introduced a new set of technical regulations, balancing the car’s weight to its power output. The series hopes to level the playing field in an effort to allow the best car and driver to shine. For 2013 there is a format change as well, gone is the 90 minute race, replaced by a traditional one hour event. A double header weekend, with a three hour enduro, (as the jewel of the series) mixing things up for the teams and drivers as they push for speed and strategy to win races.
“The new rules and new classes will really be a challenge for the top teams this year”, says 2011 and 2012 GT4 championship team principle Joe Chan, “We are happy to be able to partner with Bluechem Canada, in putting their products to the ultimate test! Endurance Racing!!” Paragon Competition will campaign their new Railey Technology Chevrolet Camaro SS. “This is a new car for us; we will work hard in developing the car for the GT Challenge series, and will be fighting to hold on to our championship title”.
With these new rules and some of Canada’s most well prepared GT cars, the GT challenge series will bring exciting road racing to Ontario. Stay stunned!
