Alpharetta, GA – April 12, 2016 – The Trans Am Series Championship rolled through Road Atlanta this weekend with Burtin Racing debuting the No. 7 GoShare Chevrolet Corvette. The team partnership was announced last week and aims to promote the GoShare mobile application that provides on demand local delivery services.
The team was very pleased starting out the weekend with a quick racecar and competitive speed in the No. 7 GoShare Corvette C7.R. The car setup and development continues to improve from recent wind tunnel testing and increased track time with the car.
Burtin Racing driver Claudio Burtin started from seventh place on the grid for Sunday’s 70-minute 100-mile Trans Am feature race. After a skilled start taking the green flag and working in the first laps of the race, mechanical issues in the engine started to loom. On Lap 13 the No. 7 GoShare Corvette was forced to retire the race early.
“Unfortunately we didn’t find any luck here in Atlanta as we lost two engines,” stated Claudio Burtin, team owner and driver. “We lost the first motor in practice and then the second during the race. The team will look ahead to our next event at the Glen.”
The Trans Am Series will return to the track on May 15th at Watkins Glen International for Round 3 of the 2016 Trans Am Championship as it continues its 50th Anniversary Season.

GoShare connects people who have a truck or cargo van with people and businesses nearby who need help moving, hauling and delivering large items on demand. GoShare Inc. was formed in 2014 by founder and CEO Shaun Savage. Shaun’s house painting business regularly needed a delivery service so that he didn’t have to leave the job site in the middle of the day to refill supplies. There was no such service back then and whenever Shaun had to leave the job site unsupervised he found his team to be unproductive. Some time later Shaun tried to buy a big screen TV from Costco but it wouldn’t fit in his car. After spending several hours renting a truck to bring the item home he knew there was a problem that could be solved using technology and the sharing economy. GoShare’s mission is to empower people to help people by sharing their trucks and vans. By promoting collaborative consumption we believe that we can make the world a better place. GoShare Drivers are independent contractors who earn money using their own vehicles and lending a hand to people in their communities who need their help. All GoShare drivers must pass a background check, vehicle inspection, and training before they can start driving with us. GoShare carries a cargo insurance policy to protect the items that we are carrying for our customers. The company is based in San Diego, CA and operates throughout San Diego county and parts of New Jersey with plans to expand internationally.
