I have always admired Brianne Corn‘s sincere & eager push to compete in all forms of racing she has entered. Here she is on her way to winning the AWD Time Attack class at the Pikes Peak last year (2011 – the last year with a partial dirt course – it’s all asphalt this year).
Two week ago today I received a message on Facebook from Brianne Corn, competitive racer extraordinaire. She simply asked:
Are you interested in being the fluids sponsor for the Pikes Peak car this year?
Well, as an up & coming Independent AMSOIL Dealer, I wasted no time in getting this set up. Since then we coordinated & came to an agreement. Brianne will now be representing AMSOIL Racing, via Racing Ready sponsorship assistance, at Pikes Peak. We are so proud to support such a positive & competitive racer!
Brianne, & her much better modified 2005 Subaru WRX STi & her AMSOIL Synthetics products are now in the vicinity of Colorado Springs. She & her support team are going through final preparations for the 90th running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb competition. The event date is this coming Sunday, August 12rh, 2012.
This past Saturday I called Brianne & was privileged to hear her gush enthusiastically about her greatly improved race car. This was the 1st time Brianne had seen her car in person for at least 3 months. As she walked around the car, phone to her ear, she listed a number of racer ooohs & aaahs:
- completely replaced & improved suspension (by AWD Tuning)
- 2″ wider tires than last year (with nicely done custom fender extensions)
- now about 500HP (last year the car had about 350HP)
- they have taken every opportunity to lighten & stiffen the car
- 3″ stainless steel exhaust pipe, from header to tailpipe – no muffler!
- turbo & headers well wrapped in gold foil & thermal wrap
- upgraded rear differential
- and more!
Terry Fair (Principal of Vorshlag) & Jason McDaniel (Brianne’s Crew Chief) & the other folks at Vorshlag Motorsports have done a great job of completely reincarnating Brianne’s Sti Subaru race car.
I will post clearer car images when they are made available. For details of Brianne’s car build, go to this Vorshlag Motorsports build blog posting…good stuff here!
Today Brianne finally got out to practice & reacquaint herself with her new race car. Her Subbie is definitely a “new beast” as witnessed in this Vorshlag Motorsports shakedown run at Mineral Wells at the end of last week. Enjoy the anticipated winning ways for Brianne as Terry Fair tests her car in this video below (click image to play)!
I’m SO very happy for Brianne & anticipate some good results! Racing Ready is inspired by Brianne’s perseverance. I am also confident in the role that the AMSOIL synthetic oil & other products she is using will assist in her success.
GO BRIANNE GO !
GO RACE !
