Lola came along quite late, but I am looking forward to returning
to Sebring for a second time.
Milka just made history at Homestead and I am looking forward to
working with both her and Phil. I am sure we can put on a competitive

blend of speed, experience and personality. We're not kidding ourselves
about the opposition, but we think a top five is on the cards."
Milka Duno raced
with Justin Wilson in the Nissan World Series in 2002, so she'll
be very familiar with his speed. Phil Andrews promises that the
Lola will be around at the finish of the 12 Hours, so it should
be a very solid start to the year for the Taurus Sports outfit.
More news is expected from this team after Sebring....
