Las Vegas, April 29,2011 Racing Optics™, Inc., and Stefan Wilson have announced a partnership with the Firestone Indy Lights driver to utilize Racing Optics™, Inc., laminated tear-offs during the 2011 season.

The Firestone Indy Lights calendar includes a diverse mix of road courses, street circuits and ovals, including the world famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Road and street races take place rain or shine and start times vary, with late afternoon starts and floodlit finishes common at oval events. Having experienced Racing Optics™, Inc.’s distortion-free tear-offs first hand, Stefan is delighted that the partnership will see him using Speedstack™ tear-offs this year.

“With the high speeds, lighting and driving conditions we experience in Firestone Indy Lights, tear-offs are an essential ingredient for success, you need multiple tear-offs over the course of the race distance, and when your wheel to wheel with other cars at close to 200Mph, your tear-offs need to be reliable and easy to manage” said Stefan. “I’m delighted to be working with Racing Optics™, Inc. - nothing comes close to the quality and performance of the Speedstack™ tear-offs.”
