the Lingenfelter Performance Design & Engineering Challenge is all about how cars bring form and function together
Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has renewed their season-long sponsorship of the Design & Engineering Challenge that is part of the 2014 OPTIMA Batteries Search for the Ultimate Street Car events and television series.
The Lingenfelter Performance Design & Engineering Challenge is a vital part of the overall event and awards points to competitors based upon the overall design and engineering aspects of their vehicles.
"We are proud to once again sponsor the Lingenfelter Performance Design & Engineering Challenge at the 2014 OPTIMA Batteries Ultimate Street Car events," said Ken Lingenfelter, CEO/owner, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering.
"As one of five segments within the 2014 OPTIMA Batteries Ultimate Street Car events, the Lingenfelter Performance Design & Engineering Challenge is all about how cars bring form and function together," said Jimi Day, race director of the OPTIMA Batteries Ultimate Street Car Series. "All participants will vote on competitors' vehicles, and then the judges will review the cars for fit, finish, modifications, engineering and design. Lingenfelter is the perfect company to sponsor the Performance Design & Engineering Challenge because they've been building outstanding and well-designed high-performance cars for more than 40 years."
The Lingenfelter Performance team isn't just going to be judging cars at the 2014 OPTIMA events. "We're partnering with Ride-Tech and will be campaigning two to four cars at every 2014 event," said Mike Copeland, vice president and general manager at Lingenfelter Performance Engineering.
"We are really looking forward to the first event of the 2014 OPTIMA Batteries Search for the Ultimate Street Car season that takes place at the famous Laguna Seca track in northern California. The OPTIMA Series includes 11 races and 10 qualifying events, plus the post-SEMA final event, and all of these events are held at some of the finest race tracks in the country."
