New Pro Modified team steps up from Sportsman ranks
CORBYVILLE, ONTARIO (February 11, 2010) – After running just one year in the Quick 32 Sportsman Series, Derek Hawker decided to upgrade and increase his racing effort, with the Pro Modified Racing Association.
His explanation was simple:
“I want to go faster,” he said. “It’s just my thing. I’m not a bracket racer.”
So the Hawker Racing Team, based near Belleville, Ontario, took his two-year old 1963 Corvette Sting Ray, removed the tunnel ram-injected engine, and replaced it with a 526-cubic inch Alan Johnson supercharged unit complete with a PSI Supercharger, Atchison Fuel System, and a Lenco three-speed on the back of the engine.
Hawker said the team will take it slow and easy for the first while with the Vanishing Point Split-Window Corvette.
“This will be our first go with this type of engine and set-up,” he said. “We’ll keep to the low side and start with about 2000 horsepower with the engine and go up from there.”
