BAM! Hit By Hurricane Frances
BAM!’s race shop suffered serious damage at the weekend, at
the hands of Hurricane Frances. The roof was torn off the building
in Stuart, Florida, and the team’s offices were destroyed.
The workshop area was flooded, but the No. 43 YES Network Porsche
911 GT3 RSR, transporter and race equipment are intact.
"BAM! got wham-bammed
by the hurricane," team owner Tim Munday reported. "It's
pretty ugly. The offices are trashed, but everywhere else is okay.
The front third of the building, which is the offices, took the
full force of it. The back third is where the car is. Everything
else is wet, but the front is destroyed."
The team will set up
temporary offices in the BAM! transporter, which houses team operations
on race weekends. They will be ready for the next American Le Mans
Series race, the Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta, on Sept. 25.
"We'll still make
Atlanta," Munday said. "We'll just have to function out
of the truck, which now becomes the office. But we're used to living
out of the truck. We'll be okay."
