IN2Racing – 2 Car Entry For LMES
IN2Racing team manager Aled Dudfield, at Sebring today, confirmed that the team will field a two car Porsche 911 RSR entry for the full 2005 Le Mans Endurance Series, with Juan Barazi and Michael Vergers confirmed in one car (and a third driver looking likely to follow suit later today) and Paul Warren, Chris Hyman and Mike Richards all now confirmed for the second car.

“We like the longer LMES races very much. It works as a format, for both our drivers and our sponsors too.”

A limited programme in the British GT Championship remains a likely prospect too.

For this week though the team is concentrating on getting to grips with the unique challenge of Sebring International Raceway, where Vergers and Barazi are joined by ex-F3 racer Andy Thompson:

“Andy has been excellent, his technical feedback has been very good indeed and his approach has been extremely professional, we’re delighted to have him on board here, in what is his first GT race run.

“The week so far has been a baptism of fire for the team but we want to run at the very highest level and this is where we can find the yardsticks,” continued Dudfield. “Michael has been doing a good job and Juan is making excellent progress: despite being hobbled by a misfire he’s got absolutely no shortage of confidence either in the track or the car.”

The team’s regular support squad are being bolstered this week by Kevin Jeannette’s Gunnar Racing squad (a marriage brokered through the pages of dailysportscar!), the local knowledge provided by the US contingent providing a definite boost for the still very new GT team.

“We haven’t shown our true speed yet,” says Dudfield, “but we should make steady progress in the race. Everyone is looking forward to a great run.”
