Czech News – Janis And Enge

Janiš With Race Alliance
Jarek Janis made a huge impression during the 2006 FIA GT Championship – mainly in the Zakspeed Saleen. But after one race in the RaceAlliance Aston Martin, the last one at Dubai, he’ll remain with that team for 2007.

It seems likely that RaceAlliance will race both of its DBR9s next year, but that is unconfirmed. Philipp Peter and Karl Wendlinger were regulars in #33 DBR9 throughout 2006.

Enge For SAMAX Riley At Daytona
Tomáš Enge will extend his record of starts in major endurance races and will race at the Rolex 24 late next month.

As expected, he will race for Peter Baron’s SAMAX team, in a Riley Pontiac.

The Czech driver tested the car at Homestead-Miami last weekend, as already reported.

Negotiations were concluded very quickly between Enge’s manager Antonín Charouz and Peter Baron. Enge will test the car again at the test days early in January.

"I said after the test that Daytona was missing in my collection of prestigious 24
hour endurance races and would like add this race,” said Enge. “Now this wish comes true. I don’t want to speak about the exact target (for the race), because the line-ups for the two cars are not complete: I will know more after testing in January.”

“Grand-Am is for Tomas a new series, but he knows American races and I believe that Daytona will confirm his good name,” said his manager.

This agreement is just for Daytona, but other Grand-Am events haven’t been ruled out. Here he is talking to Marc Goossens (who occasionally drove for SAMAX last year) at Homestead (below).
