RealTime Acura team busy testing; Kevin McKee signs for full season

April 29, 2003 - Saukville, Wis.

RealTime Racing crew chief Jerome Zimmermann has supervised two test sessions for the team's fleet of Acura RSX and Acura Integra race cars, as the team prepares for the second round of the Speed World Challenge Touring Car season May 16-17 at Mosport International Raceway in Ontario, Canada.

Three-time champion Pierre Kleinubing and rookie-contender Zac Mazzotta spent two days testing their RSX racers, continuing the development of Acura's new Touring Car fighter.

Zimmermann also announced that Kevin McKee, of San Francisco, will drive one of RealTime's championship-winning Integras for the full 2003 season. McKee ran his first event for the team at Sebring, picking up 10 positions from his qualifying spot, finishing 16th.

"I'm hooked now," said McKee, who now joins Mazzotta as a challenger for the series Rookie of the Year award. "I had heard so much about the excitement and level of competition in Speed Touring Car, but didn’t know how much fun it could really be until I got my feet wet in it. I'd only planned on doing a few races with RealTime Racing, but now I'm committed to the full season."

"The focus of our tests was on handling, specifically the shock tuning and spring packages," said Zimmermann. "The RSX suspension is different from the Integra, and we're learning something new every time out. Knowing that we're still learning and improving the cars will put us even closer to the winner's circle at Mosport.

"Mosport has some high-speed corners," Kleinubing added, "and the changes we have made will be particularly effective in those kinds of turns -- both there and at Road Atlanta in June,"

RealTime Racing drivers, since 1993, have won 46 World Challenge race victories on their way to eight Driver's Championships, and eight Manufacturer's titles for the Acura and Honda brands.
