Thundersport Racing's Ion Red Line

SaturnFans.com congratulates Mike Kramer and the folks at ThunderSport Racing on their win at the SCCA Daytona Classic last week. "This was just a great weekend for us, the car was stout from start to finish and there's no other experience I can think of that compares to being on top of Daytona's high-banks in a racecar," beamed Kramer.

The #42 Saturn Ion Red Line rolled off the trailer for the Sports Car Club of America's (SCCA) Daytona Classic last weekend and won from the front, earning the ThunderSport Racing team's first victory of the 2008 season. During Saturday's sun-soaked qualifying session, Mike Kramer pressed his Kumho-tire sponsored machine to a fast lap of just over 91 miles per hour around Daytona's world-famous oval/road course. When the checkered flag fell on Sunday's 40-minute sprint, the #42 Saturn Red Line streaked across the start/finish stripe claiming the Touring 3 (T3) class win and Kramer's 42nd career victory.
