Buford, Mar. 3, 2011: Kinetic Group is looking forward to the Kia 200 at Homestead Miami Speedway with Jade Buford and Bryan Sellers co-driving the #33 Kinetic Motorsports BMW M3 E92 sponsored by Sail Air Travel, Inc. and Vion Hitachi Data Systems in the GRAND-AM Continental Tire Challenge Series in the Grand Sport (GS). After a few bits of bad luck at the GRAND-AM 200 in Daytona at the end of January, the two drivers and Kinetic Motorsports are optimistic for a good finish at Homestead this weekend.


“After suffering a big collision in the GRAND-AM 200 race at Daytona, we’ve been able to put the BMW M3 E92 back together for Jade and Bryan,” said Kinetic Motorsports team owner Russell Smith. “Jade had quite a hit and got airborne, but everything is like new again and we’re all excited for them to go back out on track and have a good result at Homestead.”

“I enjoy Homestead very much; it is a very tricky race track,” said Bryan Sellers, co-driver of the #33 Kinetic BMW. “It’s very low grip and places car set-up at a premium and that’s the kind of challenge I like. This is where I first started my sports car racing career and qualified on the pole in my first start. Hopefully we can repeat the same success I had then this weekend!”

“I expect about the same results as the test. Nothing is new from the year before and everything went well during the test so we should be up to speed pretty quickly,” said Jade Buford, co-driver of the #33 car. “We had a pretty good car at Daytona and I expect the car will be even better at Homestead.”
