AutoCon R&S Returns
"We are definitely thrilled to be back in the ALMS," said
Michael Lewis, of the confirmation that he and Tomy Drissi will
share the AutoCon Motorsports Riley & Scott, at Petit Le Mans
and Laguna Seca. A third driver is likely to be added for the Road
Rice was the third driver at the team’s last race, the Sebring
12 Hours, where the R&S finished seventh overall.
The team was then overlooked
for a Le Mans entry, the two drivers spending the bulk of the year
racing in Trans-Am.
The big change for the
end of season races is the fitting of an Elan Motorsports Technologies
V8 into the Mk111C, although the team doesn’t anticipate being
able to fit in any pre-PLM testing.
"I know there will
be a host of strong cars in LMP, particularly with two Audis, but
our dependability and increased performance potential will definitely
put us in the mix," said Michael Lewis. "We may not be
up front in the first couple hours but look for us later in the
sights “are definitely set on a podium finish."
