TK-S Tries A DP
It was a surprise to see Tom Kimber-Smith’s name – sorry, rephrase that… Le Mans winner Tom Kimber-Smith’s name - against a SAMAX Riley Pontiac at next week’s Homestead test.

“I fly out tomorrow (December 2), have a seat fitting at the team’s workshop at Fort Lauderdale on Sunday, and then I’m testing on Tuesday and Wednesday,” says the Team LNT regular.

“LNT is still my number one priority for 2007, but I’ve always wanted to race in America, and I really want to race in the Rolex 24.”

The contact with SAMAX came about through driver manager Rick Gorne and SAMAX team owner Peter Baron, who made a habit of testing and racing new (to the Rolex Series) drivers this year. LNT team-mate Rob Bell had several races in the SAMAX Porsche in the GT Class.

“I don’t know what the cars are like,” continues TK-S, “so this is a taster really – for the team and myself. It might have happened earlier on this year, but I was too busy with Team LNT.”

Here he is on the podium at Le Mans, with Richard Dean and Lawrence Tomlinson either side of him.
