LUIS DIAZ AND RICARDO GONZALEZ WILL SKIP LIME ROCK AS THEY PREPARE TO FINISH THE SEASON IN AN LMPC CAR

Mexico City, Mexico - July 22, 2010 - Luis Diaz and Ricardo Gonzalez announced today that they will not compete this weekend at round 5 of the 2010 American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patron season, and that for the rest of the year they will leave the GTC category and will look to move up to an LMPC prototype in preparation for their attack on the 2011 championship.

The Mexican duo is currently in negotiations with LMPC teams and hopes to return to the track for the next round of the series which will take place August 7th at the Mid Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.

Luis Diaz
"It's been an interesting year for us, we started driving the Porsches which represented a steep learning curve for me and Ricardo since we had to completely adjust our driving styles. But we picked it up quickly and achieved some good results. The Alex Job Racing team did a great job and helped us adapt quickly.

Now we have a new challenge ahead with the LMPC prototypes and I am very happy to take it on. We'll be able to go back to the types of cars that I know best and that ive had great success with. It's an interesting situation for us since we won't be fighting for the championship so we'll be able to just concentrate on preparing for next year and fighting straight up for wins."

Ricardo Gonzalez
"It's been a busy few days trying to get everything organizad for the rest of the Seaton but we are very happy that this opportunity came up. My goal has always been to use this as a learning year and get to know the tracks and the series, and now I will be able to do it in a much faster car and one that drives more like the formula cars that I am used to. The opportunity to drive an LMPC prototype for the rest of the year is very important for us since it will allow us to prepare with time for 2011 and to develop the car and our driving, in a way the next races will serve as testing sessions for us for next season. We are currently finalizing details and we hope to announce our plans very soon."
