Miracle Focuses On Le Mans & PLM
Miracle Motorsports team owner John Macaluso has confirmed that it his team’s intention to concentrate on endurance races this year: that is the Le Mans 24 Hours and Petit Le Mans. KUMHO will continue to supply tires to Miracle for these races.

“I really enjoy the endurance races,” said Macaluso. “Getting to Le Mans was a lifelong goal for me, and we finally made it in 2005. We ran well but didn’t finish the race, so we feel like we’ve got some unfinished business there.”

His Courage AER, driven by Andy Lally, Ian James and the team owner himself, had a very good run going in June 2005, until loss of drive necessitated either abandoning the car or rolling back into pit lane: the latter led to exclusion from the race.

“We believe we’ve got a good chance of winning the LMP2 class at Le Mans if we focus only on that race,” said Macaluso.

“After Le Mans we will focus on the last major endurance race of the year, the Petit Le Mans.”

“We scored some impressive wins with Miracle (last year), including a class win in the Twelve Hours of Sebring,” said Randy Consolacion, KUMHO motorsports manager. “The KUMHO brand received great exposure at the races and on the television broadcasts. Our dealers like our involvement with the series, so this year we’ve increased our marketing involvement with the series so that KUMHO will get even more exposure.”

He added that KUMHO will expand its ALMS involvement and will announce an additional race partner in time to contest the Lone Star Grand Prix in Houston on May 12, and the rest of the ALMS schedule.
