Lightning & Krohn Racing
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”.
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.
