Among the big news at Fields Racing is that their prototype TA2 chassis design revealed at the Road Atlanta Trans Am finals last year, known as the M1 Fastrack, has transformed into reality and now sits at the heart of both Fields Racing TA2 Chevy Camaros.
“We’ve had our own concept of what we wanted in a chassis, and now that we’ve met approval by Trans Am, our vision which began back in 2012 is now something we can apply to the track. We are really excited about it and look forward to having the design contribute to the growth of the series. But most of all, we are ready to race! It’s been a long year of anticipation” said Chris Liesfeld, driver of the 96 Chevy Camaro and one of the owners of M1 Motorsports, the company created to handle sales and service of the new chassis.
The team delivered one complete race car and a second rolling chassis for final inspection by Trans Am officials during the Mid Ohio leg of the Trans Am Series on August 17, 2013. “It was a milestone trip for us, said Kenny Liesfeld, driver of the 92 Fields Racing Camaro. Our crew has gone above and beyond on the development and assembly of the new cars. It was nice to see the hard work pay off.”
And as the team gears up for great weekend of racing at Virginia International Raceway September 27-29, they will have a few more decals to apply to the car. In addition to the ongoing commitment from Nelson Equipment Inc., a long time sponsor of the team, also adding to the buzz around the Fields camp is a new line up of supporting sponsors joining the action.
“We are thrilled to announce some great new partnerships!”, said Roger Sattler, Marketing Director for Fields Racing. “These are companies who provide world class products and services and we appreciate their faith in our team.
