Krohn-Barbour Line-Ups
Having withdrawn from the Mosport race on the Saturday of the event, and then missed Road America, the Krohn-Barbour Lamborghinis are back for Petit Le Mans – with Nic Jonsson joining David Brabham and Peter Kox in #5, and Road Atlanta instructor (and Tracy Krohn’s GA Cup partner) Joe Fox joining Krohn and Scott Maxwell in #6.

Nic Jonsson raced the #6 car at Portland in July, standing in for Scott Maxwell, while the last time a track instructor raced the #6 entry (Dave McEntee, at Infineon Raceway), the Murcielago managed to finish second in GTS.

All six Krohn-Barbour Racing drivers drove the Lamborghinis in testing last weekend, and both cars covered more than 300 miles – trying out developments that have been built into the two cars during the team’s break from race action.

"This was a valuable chance to try things that we didn't have time to try before because of the tight schedule, having taken delivery of the cars one day before a race and then having five races in seven weekends,” explained Dick Barbour. “By taking a break from the race program we've had chance to take a good look at the cars, make some detail improvements, and prepare thoroughly for an exceptionally long race. For Nic [Jonsson] and Joe [Fox], the test also provided useful seat time in the car."

dailysportscar’s coverage of Petit Le Mans will begin later today (Wednesday), with a report from Tom Kjos on the official test session.
