26.01.2007: Farnbacher Loles startet bei den Rolex 24h Daytona mit vier Fahrzeugen

Nach Podiumsplatzierungen in den letzten zwei Jahren, unter anderem der Sieg in der GT-Klasse 2005, trat Farnbacher Loles Racing beim offiziellen Test der 24 von Daytona im Januar mit vier Fahrzeugen an. Mit neuem Design und Recaro als Sponsor war das Team in jeder Sitzung schnell unterwegs. Am Samstag fuhr Dirk Werner sogar die schnellste Zeit des Wochenendes.

Werner wird sich den Porsche 997 GT3 Cup mit der Nummer 85 (Shoes For Crews/Flamingo Resort/Recaro) mit Pierre Ehret, Leh Keen und Jörg Hardt teilen.

Der Nummer 86-Porsche 997 GT3 Cup (Bowman Racing/Bell Micro) wird von Larry Bowman, Don Bell, Lance Willsey und Shawn Price pilotiert.

Im dritten Porsche 997 GT3 (Recaro) mit der Startnummer 87 nehmen Christian Zugel, John Burke, Gunnar Jeannette und Ryan Eversley Platz.

Craig Stanton, Bryce Miller, Jan Charouz, Justin Jackson und Tom Pank bilden das Quintett, welches den letzten Porsche 997 GT3 (Baysaver/Marquis Jet/Quicken Loans) mit der Startnummer 88 steuern wird.

Der Porsche mit der Nummer 88 ist übrigens in besonderer Mission unterwegs und fährt im Auftrag der "Children's Tumor Foundation". Pro gefahrene Runde werden Spenden für diese wohltätige Stiftung gesammelt.

Farnbacher Loles Racing hat zudem bestätigt 2007 mindestens zwei Porsche 997 GT3 Cup in der GT-Klasse der Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series einzusetzen. Die Fahrer und Sponsoren für diesen Einsatz werden in Kürze bekannt gegeben.

Horst Farnbacher: „Die Rolex Serie ist sehr hart umkämpft und sehr professionell. Wir möchten um die Meisterschaft mitfahren. Mit dem Team, welches wir aufgestellt haben, bin ich sehr zuversichtlich, dass wir dieser Herausforderung gewachsen sind."

In den letzten Jahren fuhren die GT-Klassen zusammen mit den DP-Fahrzeugen. 2007 werden sechs der 13 GT-Rennen als Einzelrennen gefahren. Die Rennlänge variiert zwischen 2,5 und 24 Stunden mit Fahrerbesetzungen von zwei bis vier Personen. Das Team hat bereits mit den Vorbereitungen begonnen, um zum Saisonstart am 27./28. Januar in Daytona bereit zu sein.

Der Start zu den 45. Rolex 24h Daytona erfolgt am Samstag, 27. Januar 2007, um 13.30 Uhr Ortszeit.
