STPR 2010 - T-Hanson is ready for a battle !

STPR is one of the premier events to be a spectator. The organizers of the event have set up many great locations for spectators, and media to safely get very close to the action of this rally.

The event is located near the "grand canyon of the east", in the most beautiful wooded, deep country of Pennsylvania, and is one of the best events in the east coast of America.

Travis Hanson of T-Hanson Motorsports is always a crowd favorite in the east, at both STPR and NEFR. Estimates of over three thousand spectators are in the region, and license plates show that spectators travel from New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Ohio, as far as Kentucky, North Carolina, Ontario and Quebec. Spectators love to see the beautiful shinny mechanical marvels that Rally Cars are when they begin and event, and the passion of rally is shown by the car's durability and drivers ability to press on to the finish. For spectators and marketing partners, it is often the determination and commitment to completion and that defines a great car and team.
T-Hanson as has some great success, and struggles at STPR over the past years. Last year (2009), T-Hanson finished with a 3rd place podium seat. T-Hanson was in a good position to take a lead, but a fuel system problem caused intermittent issues, resulting in a spin, and impact, where the car suffered minor cosmetic damage.
Travis and Terry were able to make up time, at the end of day 2, pushing the SP car to the limits and blistering speeds of an Open Class car during the final SUPER SPECIAL spectator event at the finish.
Travis and Terry of T-Hanson Motorsports are ready to battle for the 2010 Super Production class championship, and once again return to the X-games. The Driver, Co-driver, car and crew are prepped and ready for a tight and exciting race !
