Luhr & Maassen Race For BAM!
We thought that GT Champions Lucas Luhr and Sascha Maassen were
going to stay in Europe this year, in the Freisinger GT3-RSR in
the FIA GT Championship. But following on from the news that Marc
Lieb and Mike Rockenfeller will race with the team at Le Mans, with
Leo Hindery, we now find that Luhr and Maassen will be fitting ALMS
races into their schedule.
will drive in all the remaining eight ALMS races this year. Luhr
and Maassen will compete in six races that do not conflict with
their duties in Europe. Both will race with Hindery at Lime Rock
Park and at Laguna Seca Raceway. Maassen will also drive at Mosport
International Raceway and at Road America – in a two driver
line-up. Luhr will drive at Sears Point Raceway and at Portland
BAM! co-owner Peter Baron
will drive with Hindery at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and in the
Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta. Porsche factory driver Mike Rockenfeller
of Neuwied, Germany will join Hindery and Baron for the Petit Le
Mans. The trio drove together in the 2003 Petit Le Mans and the
2004 Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.
"It will feel strange
competing against Alex Job, but of course they are the main competition,”
said Sascha Maassen. “I'll feel really bad competing against
them - until I put on my helmet."
OK, got all that? We
look forward to testing our ALMS man Tom Kjos on the BAM! line-up
at each event - and watching the competition race against those
