Chili Pepper Racing/Autosport Development readies the #7 Remote Area Medical/TC Thompson Children’s Hospital GTO for Round 10 at Mosport. Jim Osborn remains hopeful that the current round of competition adjustments will give the GTO a needed boost. “The GTO is a great racing platform” said Osborn. “It seems we have the handling but we are down on straight line speed due to our aerodynamic disadvantage…we were hoping for more of a restrictor reduction”. “We were fortunate at Denver to get the GTO into 13th position but with Mosports long straight we will need more top speed than we have been able to accomplish to-date.”
Chili Pepper Racing’s next event is the 2005 Post Petit Lemans Charity Motorcycle Ride to benefit the Light House Family Retreat and Remote Area Medical October 1-2, 2005 in association with Road Atlanta, Autosport Development, the Flowery Branch Yacht Club, Lake Lanier Lodges, and Sports Car Revolution.

Remote Area Medical® (RAM) Volunteer Corps is a non-profit, volunteer, airborne relief corps dedicated to serving mankind by providing free health care, dental care, eye care, veterinary services, and technical and educational assistance to people in remote areas of the United States and the world.
The need to get medical care to people in inaccessible regions was one which founder Stan Brock knew all too well while living 15 years with the Wapishana Indians in the Amazon rain forest. When he left South America to do the Wild Kingdom television series, he found medically helpless populations throughout the world. His deep desire to find a way to take health care to people who had none was the seed of RAM.
