Troy Adams Put on the First-Ever Asphalt and Off-Road Winter Racing Camp

Press Release – updated: Jan 10, 2020 10:00 PST

RIVERSIDE, Calif., January 10, 2020 (Newswire.com) – Troy Adams Coaching hosted the first-ever Winter Racing Camp for asphalt and off-road drivers at Adams Motorsports Park, January 2-January 5, to a sold-out crowd. Students from 5-15 years of age spent two days improving their racing craft on asphalt in kid karts, cadet karts, and full-size racing go-karts. After which, they spent another two days pounding laps at a private off-road racetrack in the Inland Empire. The Winter Racing Camp was designed for drivers first entering the sport, as well as for drivers who compete and want to get on top of the winner’s box. The camp focused on on-track drills to improve braking, roll speed and overall driver development. Off-track drills included analyzing film, tennis ball eye-hand coordination, and endurance work. The instructors were all elite-level drivers and included: Off-Road Rock Star Energy Driver Ronnie Anderson, NASCAR K&N West and American Rally Cross Driver Cole Keatts, and Ana Predescu who races Porsche Spec Boxsters in the POC, NASA, and PCA. Troy Adams was the lead instructor and was a one-time NASCAR driver and currently a world-renowned driver development coach. Troy trains drivers in multiple racing disciplines which includes karting, Lucas Oil off-road racing, legend cars, rallycross and NASCAR. His students include Brian and Hallie Deegan, Cole Keatts, Riley Herbst, and Christopher Polvoorde to name a few.
Troy also trains his son, Truly Adams, who started his racing career at two years old on his father’s lap at Adams Motorsports Park, which has been family-owned and operated for 60 years.
“It’s amazing to be a part of such a close-knit racing community. We didn’t know how people would respond to a four-day asphalt and off-road racing camp, so we were floored to see the support. Our first ever racing camp sold out, and we had participants come from as far as Panama. I have been coaching for over 30 years, and it feels great to see the impact that our school has had on drivers all over the world.”

MANN-FILTER Motorsport Recaps a Successful 2019 Racing Season

“MANN-FILTER Mambas” of the Mercedes-AMG brand

LUDWIGSBURG, Germany (PRWEB) December 18, 2019
The Motorsport Team at MANN-FILTER has announced a summary of their eventful 2019 racing season. On five continents and in six different racing series, the yellow-green “MANN-FILTER Mambas” of the Mercedes-AMG brand scored numerous successes.
At the Intercontinental GT Challenge (IGTC), MANN-FILTER driver Maximilian Buhk won third place overall and earned three second-place finishes in the five IGTC season races. “Our Mamba was without a doubt one of the best cars of the season. That makes it easier to forget the disappointment of not having taken the title, and to come back next year even stronger,” said Buhk.
At the ADAC GT Masters, the MANN-FILTER Team HTP succeeded thanks to the strong performance of German-Dutch driver duo Maximilian Götz and Indy Dontje in the second half of the season, taking the victory in the Saturday race at the Sachsenring and claiming third place overall in their Mercedes-AMG GT3. Meanwhile, their team colleagues Philip Ellis and Fabian Vettel finished third, driving the sister car in the second race at Zandvoort in the Netherlands. Bringing home four podium finishes, the MANN-FILTER Team HTP may have fallen short of repeating last year’s title in the team ranking, but they proved that their Mambas count among the top racers in the super sports car league.
The Leipert Motorsport Team also rang up some successes at the ADAC GT4 Germany in their Mercedes-AMG GT4, dubbed the “Baby Mamba.” The win scored by Luca-Sandro Trefz and Morgan Haber at the second race in Hockenheim ultimately lifted the German-Australian crew into fourth place in the overall rankings.
One top-priority event in the season program of MANN-FILTER Motorsport was the ADAC 24 Hours of Nürburgring race held at the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife north-loop track in June. The Mercedes AMG Team MANN-FILTER with Maximilian Götz, Raffaele Marciello, Christian Hohenadel, and Lance-David Arnold drove for almost 19 hours within range of a podium finish. Their Mercedes-AMG GT3 was damaged, however, when it clipped a lapped car, causing driver Maximilian Götz to slam into a guard rail.
In October, Maximilian Buhk and Raffaele Marciello drove the MANN-FILTER Mamba of HTP Motorsport to overall victory at the eighth run of the VLN Endurance Racing Championship at the Nürburgring.
At the International GT Open, where HTP Motorsport hosted a Mercedes-AMG GT3 for Austrians Alexander Hrachowina and Martin Konrad, the team won a commanding second place finish. Early in the year, Hrachowina and Konrad together with drivers Indy Dontje and Bernd Schneider scored the class victory in the A6-AM ranking with an overall 7th place finish at the Dubai 24 Hour Race.
“Although it wasn’t enough to win the championship title, we were right up among the leading contenders in the 2019 motorsports season,” said Dr. Uwe Hartmann, director of brand management at MANN-FILTER. “What’s even more important is the appreciation and camaraderie that our team enjoys with fans, the media, and competitors. Wherever they line up to race, the MANN-Filter Mambas are among the spectators’ favorites. The premium filtration MANN-FILTER brand has firmly established its place in the world of international motorsports. We’re delighted with this standing, and we’ll build on it moving forward.”

The company group with its headquarters in Ludwigsburg, Germany, develops solutions for motor cars, industrial applications, clean air in interior spaces and the sustainable use of water.

I think with the added experience, speed, and professionalism of Tatiana and Bia we have the right package for success.”
Giorgio Sanna, Global Head of Motorsports for Lamborghini states, “I’m really happy to welcome Bia and Tatiana into Lamborghini’s first all-female line up. They’re both hugely experienced drivers and of course, fast, undoubtedly an added value for the GRT Grasser Racing Team, and we are looking forward to supporting them in this new and exciting challenge.”
