10-Time World Challenge Champs to fight for 11



March 7, 2008 – Saukville, Wisconsin
The RealTime Acura team is busy putting the finishing touches on its SPEED World Challenge Touring Cars in preparation for next week’s season opener at Sebring and the entire 2008 championship. As they did last year, the 10-time series champions will campaign five production-based Acuras: four TSX sedan models and one RSX sports coupe.

The driver line up will see RealTime stalwarts Peter Cunningham and Pierre Kleinubing joined by second-year RTR pilot Kuno Wittmer. New to the squad in 2008 is a driver who, like his teammates, brings an extensive history with the Acura brand: Grand Am Koni Challenge Endurance series veteran Glenn Bocchino.

Cunningham and Kleinubing are responsible for eight of RealTime’s World Challenge Drivers’ Championships (four a piece) and 51 of the team’s record 64 race victories (25 and 26, respectively).

Wittmer will look to score his first Touring Car win this season, but he finished up 2007 as the highest placing Acura shoe in the points. Kuno’s great consistency put him third overall, while Pierre and Peter ranked fourth and fifth.

Bocchino will enjoy a busy year behind the wheel of two different Acuras. His Team i-MOTO Racing team has already won the 3-hour Koni Challenge opener at Daytona and will contest that entire championship with its two-car Acura TSX team. Glenn’s teammates there include Kuno and his brother, Nick Wittmer, as well as RealTime leader, Cunningham.

RealTime Crew Chief Paul Truess likes his team’s chances this year to add to its substantial trophy case. “We know this year’s battle won’t be any easier than last season, but the guys on the RealTime crew are hungry so our competition better prepare for a fight! We had previously tested twice on the new specification tire and we just completed our final pre-season shakedown on our way to Florida.”

After the traditional start in Central Florida, the World Challenge circus winds its way around North America, including return visits to places like Miller Motorsports Park near Salt Lake City, Lime Rock Park in northwestern Connecticut, Finger Lakes region of New York’s Watkins Glen, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and the season finale at Road Atlanta.

The RealTime Acura team is sponsored by Acura, Acura Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles, Red Line Oil, Eibach Springs, buyBrakes.com, Sparco, Hawk Performance, Brembo, A-SPEC, BOSCH, Total Auto Body, PACT and A-YES.
