White Lightning & Krohn Racing
The Mike Petersen / Dale White entry at Le Mans this year will be driven by Jorg Bergmeister, Nic Jonsson and Tracy Krohn, and will race in a revised livery – to be known as “Krohn-Green Lightning”.

‘This arrangement between the two racing operations gives Krohn Racing owner/driver Tracy Krohn a unique opportunity to race at Le Mans and, with key Krohn Racing staff in attendance, gain experience for future programs,’ says the team’s statement.

‘Krohn’s funding and drivers allows White Lightning, wanting to return to Le Mans but worried about budgetary constraints impacting their American Le Mans Series title defence, to again challenge for GT2 honours at the French classic.’

“I am delighted to have been able to make this happen, and in a way that works for all who now make up this special team that we have brought together for the ACO’s centenary event,” says Tracy Krohn.

“Jorg (Bergmeister) introduced Tracy to Mike (Petersen) and I and it all just fell into place,” explains Dale White. “We’re going to Le Mans to win.”

That certainly happened in 2003 and 2004, the Petersen-White Lightning entry then finishing second in class in 2005.
