Dwight Slemmenksi is also available!

Driver Name: Dwight Slemmenksi
Age: 35
Nationality: USA (dual citizenship with Finland)
Where is this Driver Racing?: WSCEC for the past nine years. Has one win in the 2008 24 Hours of Dubai. Running three WSCEC races this year as the team is cutting down.

"I've been racing in the WSCEC for the past nine years and it's been great but my team is only going to be running three races this year so I need to do some other racing to occupy my time. I've watched a lot of ARLA and TM Lights action and Gravity Racing Inc seems to always be in the mix for wins. They are a great team and it'd be an honor to driver their car!"

Slemmenksi has one WSCEC victory coming in the 2008 24 Hours of Dubai. He and his team only plan on running three races this year beginning with the 6 Hours of Lime Rock. Joining him in this race will be young Luxembourg driver, Kellie Montclair and ARLA driver Kalvin Oreiller.

Due to a somewhat shortage of teams being ran this year Greyhound Motorsports would like to still make a cup bid, but their main drive Kyle Cobb is only 14 and is looking to run full time in the Tornado Alley truck series. This means that his cousin Dustin Gorhan may attempt to run races or join a team.

Driver Name: Dustin Gorhan
Age: 18
Nationality: American
Where is this driver racing?: Nowhere right now; but was looking to become a relief driver for Kyle Cobb in the Tornado Alley truck series. He would have also worked on Cobb's pit crew, but would like to get into higher forms of racing not just local short tracks.

Washington Aquires Sponsorship, Aiming for Gravity Racing Ride
After an exciting 2012, Scott Washington is aiming to move up. He spent the year in the RROL Elite Series, where he made quite a name for himself, winning the prestigious Clairmont Grand Prix and in the process becoming the first African American to win an RROL race. Washington announced a sponsorship deal with Subway that he hopes will help him find a ride in the TM Lights series. Washington said that "the TM Lights is the best place to go if your looking for a top level ride. The RROL was where I learned how to race. I think I'm ready for the next step. If you look at the lights field, there are a lot of guys that got their start in the RROL: Cameron Taylor, Martin Boltano, and others. I hope to follow in their footsteps. I'll also be proud to represent Subway if I get a ride." The Subway connection may be an indicator that he is perusing a ride with Gravity Racing, Inc. Washington made a bid for that seat earlier until Casey Lester was announced as the driver. However, Lester's deal fell through and many sources report that Washington is seeking to be the new driver.

Lester to stop pursuing TM Lights ride after plans fall through again

In 2012, Casey Lester was initially signed to Gravity Racing Incorporated's #171 Subway TM Lights ride for the full season. However, with the divisions being merged into one division and returning the TM Lights to it's previous layout, the team had to suspend operations of the 171 team, leaving Lester without a ride. He signed to Bill Chapman Motorsports' #26 Cialis Lenard in the American Stock Car Championship, running very well some races and very poorly in others. He tried again to take the GRI TM Lights spot and once again, plans fall through. But this time, it had nothing to do with the team. He was reportedly told that he was not certified to be the driver by TM Lights officials, but Lester labeled the reason as "personal issues with officials". However, his recent Twitter post stated otherwise:

"RJAForever13: I see how it is. I guess GRI isn't the reason why I'm not in. Good to see everyone getting second chances."

That statement, along with possibly returning to the ASCC, will likely hurt his chances of a TM Lights drive even more.

GRAVITY RACING, INC. REPORTEDLY IN TALKS WITH SCOTT WASHINGTON ABOUT TM LIGHTS RIDE

There had been reports that RROL driver Scott Washington, who had won the prestigious Grand Prix of Clairmont, was seeking to join Gravity Racing, Inc. after he had acquired sponsorship from Subway.

It seems that GRI has taken notice.

Both parties are now reportedly in talks with one another about the #71 TM Lights ride. Several drivers, including Amanda Johnson and Casey Lester, have inquired about the ride, but were not accepted by TM Lights officials. Team owner Packer Carroll hopes the third time will be the charm.

PACKER: It's been kind of frustrating trying to find a driver, and the TM Lights officials haven't been making it easy either, but we're trying to work with them in regards to Scott Washington, because I think he would be a great fit to the team, based on his resume.

If the deal goes through, and Washington obtains his TM Lights license, he would become the first African-American driver to compete for Gravity Racing, Inc.

Bloomers looking for a ride.

Chuck Bloomers, just months after qualifying for his first TM Master Cup Series race in Decatur, is now looking for a TM Lights ride. Bloomers, whose only full time season came in ARLA in 2011, has had to put his own team on hiatus due to financial reasons. Bloomers has two career top tens in ARLA, a tenth place at Watkins Glen, and a ninth place at Decatur.

Big Mac Racing to Put in Last Minute TM Lights submission?

Big Mac Racing has stated that it would like to submit an entry into TM Lights this next season. Thomas Mac said, "We found another really nice sponsor for the entry. It gave us enough funds so that we could attempt a season in the series." Mac added that Independent's Trophy driver Tom Moore would be the most likely candidate for the ride so that he can add some more experience on road courses under his belt.

Tom Moore has expressed that if the team does not get approval into the Lights series, then he is open to other open rides in the series.

Reese Biehn has interest in the GRI ride!

Upon learning of the opening, Biehn has been quietly making overtures to the GRI management team. "I have some Master Cup experience and I've logged quite a bit of seat time testing out the TERMINATOR chassis for Rogue Motors," Biehn stated. "I'm itching to prove FPO wrong for not retaining me and all I need is an opportunity. I really hope it's with GRI!"

New team files for last second TM Lights bid

Former Formula A current World GT team Melrose Racing Team (commonly called MRT) has formally filed for a two-car entry in the TM Lights series. The Munich, Germany based team, although they run with a Australian License, have confirmed they have all the resources already in place for the 2 car entry, and are waiting approval from TM Lights management before going ahead with their testing programme for drivers Daniel Melrose and Darren Cardel.

Melrose, team principal and owner of MRT, comes off the heels of a long Formula A tenure with his own team, although only getting 4 wins to his name as this was during the peak of 4-time champion Peter Short's dynasty in FA. Cardel is a current front runner in European Touring Cars that caught the attention of the Australian after his performances the last 2 years.

The team also confirmed that they are also in talks with an unnamed Manufacture to potentially run a few races using the promoters option in the TM Master cup.

RealRacingRoots wrote:New team files for last second TM Lights bid

Former Formula A current World GT team Melrose Racing Team (commonly called MRT) has formally filed for a two-car entry in the TM Lights series. The Munich, Germany based team, although they run with a Australian License, have confirmed they have all the resources already in place for the 2 car entry, and are waiting approval from TM Lights management before going ahead with their testing programme for drivers Daniel Melrose and Darren Cardel.

Melrose, team principal and owner of MRT, comes off the heels of a long Formula A tenure with his own team, although only getting 4 wins to his name as this was during the peak of 4-time champion Peter Short's dynasty in FA. Cardel is a current front runner in European Touring Cars that caught the attention of the Australian after his performances the last 2 years.

The team also confirmed that they are also in talks with an unnamed Manufacture to potentially run a few races using the promoters option in the TM Master cup.

Is this the team in the F1Rejects World Series that destroys everyone?

Doesn't change the fact he's a damn good driver. And I'd rather have him steamrolling everyone for MRT instead of him steamrolling everyone including us Razz

And yes, I will indeed be the other co-owner of MRT here. We're not expecting much in our first year and we'll be happy to be to have both cars in the top 20 in points by season's end.

Now that you mention it, I simply have to put up what is probably my favourite Kim-Jong Un meme of them all Laughing



EDIT: Come to think of it, it would be pretty funny to have Yong-Sung sponsored by Snickers Razz

Matt Brinson to return to full time competition, possible 2 car effort for Brinson Engineering?

In a press conference today, Brinson Engineering team owner Matt Brinson announced his intention to run full time in TM Lights for 2013. It will mark the first time he has participated full time as a driver since Brinson ran in the Rundagrip Compact World Challenge back in 2010

"I've got the itch again, and things are right to get back at it" says Brinson. "I've spent the past few years tending to the company but as we've expanded, the reduced need for me to focus on day-to-day operations has given me more free time to do what I love. For me, that's race"

Brinson himself is no slouch when it comes to road racing. A son of a former TMMC race engineer, he was exposed to the world of motorsports at a very early age. Growing up, he found himself very successful at the karting level. At only 16 years old, he won the CIK Karting World Championship in 1997 and finished runner up the year after. In 1999, Brinson won the Barber Pro series. Along with racing successes, Brinson proved to be a very hands on driver, displaying a keen interest of learning the very workings of whatever he drove.

Homeschooled his entire life in order to devout time to his blossoming racing career, he then made the controversial decision upon earning a high school diploma 1999 to pursue an engineering degree. This shocked the American racing world as Brinson had been billed one of the U.S's hottest young prospects. He would attend college with the goal of creating his own tuning company rather than following a career as a racing driver. He graduated from Old Dominion University in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology. Despite attending college, he managed to find enough time to run at local Langley Speedway and Motor Mile Speedway during the summer months, especially as Brinson found a new interest in oval racing

Shortly upon graduation from college in 2004, Brinson created Brinson Engineering. From relative humble beginnings, it has since become a respected aftermarket tuner. Focusing in compact vehicles, Brinson produces high performance suspension and engine parts backed by racing research. Brinson was a successful owner/driver in the RCWC from 2006 to 2010 until lack of sponsorship killed off the program despite multiple race wins in that timeframe. Since then, Brinson has stayed primarily dormant as a driver only competing in a handful of PCC Cup events and attempting the 2012 ARLA Rockford race.

The decision to enter TM Lights is a surprising one as Brinson had already speculated returning to PCC Cup.

"I know I had expressed interest in returning to PCC competition but after looking at all of the available options, I and my sponsors decided it would be best to compete in TM Lights instead"

Brinson stated that he had obtained backing from Pharb Hangover Relief as a primary sponsor and that ENGLITCH would come on as an associate. As a throwback, Brinson will run #25 as a nod to his former karting days. However, Pharb expressed an interest as a primary sponsor for a second entry in the series as the #26. Whether the team runs a second car is dependant upon finding a second driver. The seat for the second car is "very much open" as there have been talks with several other drivers. Both cars are confirmed as Tremwells.

Team Quest still on the bubble

With just a few days to go before the entry deadline hits, Team Quest has still yet to be confirmed. Driver Mattias McCallister seemed rather unsurprised by this when asked to talk about it.

"I'm not too surprised by the fact that we haven't been confirmed yet. I didn't get in for ARLA, what would make us think I'd get in for TM Lights? I was highly skeptical of this from the start. I respect Mr. Alexander for trying to give me the chance, but I don't think it's happening."

Dawson to run second Brinson Engineering car

This morning, it was announced that Canadian Nick Dawson would fill the second Brinson Engineering seat in TM Lights, accompanying owner/driver Matt Brinson in the #26 Pharb Hangover Relief Tremwell.

"It's a win-win for both sides" says Brinson. "Running a full season in TM Lights will help Nick out tremendously, especially as these races run as companion events to Master Cup. It'll give him a lot of experience which will help him out in his rookie TMMC season for sure. As for us, we're getting a very competent young driver who we feel can be very competitive given the chance to do so. I'm delighted we were able to sign him"

Brinson Engineering will run #'s 25 and 26 if they are approved.

MRT receive first TM Lights Cars

With the start of the 2013 TM Lights season fast approaching, former Formula A superstar Daniel Melrose was ecstatic at the sight of seeing both his cars arrive in the MRT factory in Cologne, Germany for the first time. The four time race winner and 2010 runner up to Peter Short will drive the car for the first time later this week in a shakedown test for the new team at Eurospeedway Lausitz.

"It's fantastic to see the new cars in the factory for the first time, and we have to thank that great group of guys at Tremwell for supplying the machinery for us" said a jubilant Daniel Melrose. "After many years successfully building open-wheelers, jumping into the TM universe is a whole different ballgame for us, but hopefully the team of people we have here in Cologne will help us make the transition a smooth and successful one."

When asked about the team's objectives for 2013, Melrose was more circumspect about what he hopes to achieve. "The first step is to get the cars up and running at Lausitz and get a good feel for them. As far as results ago, we're both aiming to be in the top 20 in the standings by year's end. It'll be a tall order for a new team like us with so many competitive outfits in the field, but I think we've got the ability to do it. We're also thinking of entering cars as Promoter's Options in the TM Master Cup series in Australia for myself, and the British rounds for Darren. If options open up for us though, we may enter the special events as well. For these Cup races, we're aiming merely for respect from our peers and getting the car to the finish, which would be quite an achievement for a first year part-time Cup team."

Burger Chain to run race team?

Pokey's, A very Successful chain of Burger joints based out of suburban Richmond,VA has reportedly shown interest in forming it's own team in the TMLights. Pokey's CEO and noted car enthusiast, Johnathan Pitcairn has stated that "this project has been in the works for a while and we are the closest we've been to a team."

Pitcairn has said that they are looking at buying a small fleet of Tremwell's. Number is likely goin to be #166 after a Pokey's promotion that give s4 1/8th lbs Sliders for $1.66 . No word on driver but the team has said it has a short list of 4 or so drivers.

Pokey's itself was founded in 1981 by Donovan Pitcairn, off of Broad St in Richmond,VA. The company has been in a consent state of growth. In 2003 Donovan's son Johnathan took over and lead the company to even more growth by starting the Mr P's brand of sit-down style restaurants.
