USF1 Engineers Hired by Composite Resources
Composite Resources, a global leader in the design, prototype and manufacture of advanced composite solutions announced today that the company has hired Kevin Bialas and Mike Fuller from the USF1 racing organization.
The USF1 organization has been in the headlines of major motorsports news for the past few months regarding its aggressive attempt to create an “all-American” entry for this year’s Formula One World Championship. The financially strapped team based in Charlotte, NC has suspended operations but is still hoping to field a car for the 2011 season.
Composite Resources, whose founder Jonathan Bennett is a professional road-racing driver himself, saw the opportunity to hire talent with significant motorsports experience. “Bringing both Kevin and Mike onboard provides us a wealth of composite expertise in the motorsports industry”, stated Jonathan Bennett, founder and Technical Director of Composite Resources.
Kevin Bialas will become Composite Resources’ Product Development and Engineering Manager. He brings almost 17 years of composite technology expertise primarily in motorsports. Besides USF1, he has held advanced composite development positions with Riley & Scott Racing, Team Rahal, Élan Motorsports Technologies, All American Racers and Downing Atlanta Racing.
Composite Resources hired Mike Fuller to be a Lead Composites Fabricator. Mike has gained his composite fabrication experience with motorsports organizations such as: Robertson Racing, Élan Motorsports, Reynard North America, Riley & Scott, and various organizations where he was involved in the design and construction of cars for the Indy Racing League (IRL), CART (Championship Auto Racing Teams) and ALMS (American Le Mans Series).
“Mike and I are excited to be part of an organization that has experienced substantial growth over several years and has a diversified portfolio of customers”, said Kevin Bialas. “Composite Resources has worked with some of the top teams in motorsports and Mike and I can add value to those types of projects as well as non-automotive projects.” “We were pleased to see the size of Composite Resources’ facility and their investment in cutting-edge tools and technology.”
