Continental Tire announces the “Driving Confidence” Award
Continental Tire is pleased to announce the Continental Tire “Driving Confidence” award which will be presented at this year’s GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Series (CTSCCS) banquet.
The award will recognize the Grand Sport (GS) and Street Tuner (ST) team (car) that has completed the most miles on Continental tires during the 2012 race season. The team (car) in each class with the most miles will be presented with a $5,000 cash award. 2012 marks the first year that Continental Tire has presented this award.

We applaud all the teams on their accomplishments this year and look forward to presenting the first Continental Tire ‘Driving Confidence’ award this weekend.”
