Novich, Burrows to Team for Compass360 in 2012

After driving the team's No. 77 Honda Civic Si in 2011, Andrew Novich will shift to the No. 74 where he joins Adam Burrows.

TORONTO, Ontario, Canada – Compass360 Racing (C360R) announced that Andrew Novich and Adam Burrows will pilot one of the team’s brand-new 2012 Honda Civic Sis for the coming Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge season.
Novich will return to the team for his second full-season in CTSCC, having impressed in his first year.

“Andrew did a tremendous job with us last year,” remarked Team Principal Karl Thomson. “Having spent a season learning the tracks we race at and the nuances of driving one of our Hondas, he’s ready to go for a championship in a new 2012 car.”
Sharing driving duties with Novich is 2007 CTSCC Champion Adam Burrows, who drove to second place in the Driver’s championship with C360R in 2008. He comes back to the team after two seasons in the factory Kia program that won the championship last year.

“It’s a bit of deja-vu, because in 2008 we signed Adam (and then co-driver Trevor Hopwood) after they beat Billy Johnson and me to the championship the year before,” Thomson said. “And now we’re doing it again, snagging Adam from the championship-winning Kia squad.”

Burrows and Novich will drive the #74 Dr. Kimberly Henry Plastic Surgery / Speed Secrets / Honda Performance Development (HPD) Civic Si, one of two new 2012 Hondas that Compass360 Racing will debut at Daytona Test Days on January 6th.

“I’m excited to start off the season with Adam in a month’s time,” enthused Novich, fresh off a very successful run at the 25 Hours of Thunderhill. “I know the team has been testing and doing a lot of development work with HPD in California on the new cars during the off-season.”

Burrows was similarly pleased. “It’s going to be great to be back with (Technical Director) Ray Lee, Karl and the C360R team. It feels a bit like coming home, and I know with Andrew we’re going to have a real shot at a championship this year.”
The duo will join Ray Mason and Ryan Eversley, who will share the #75 Columbus Truck / Racing4Research / HPD Honda Civic Si. The team expects to announce driver line-ups for an additional two cars in the coming weeks.

The Grand-Am season begins with Roar Before the Rolex 24 Daytona test days January 6-8th. Fans are welcome at the test; tickets can be purchased at the Daytona International Speedway website: http://bit.ly/rEnQzs.
