BELL'S BACK WITH ASTON MARTIN AT LIME ROCK

A new-look Bell Motorsports returns to the American Le Mans Series this week with a completely rebuilt Aston Martin DBR9 that again will challenge Corvette Racing's two factory Corvette C6.Rs. The Bell GT1 challenger was severely damaged in a crash at St. Petersburg in early April but extensive work by the team crew means Terry Borcheller and Chapman Ducote will be back behind the wheel for the American Le Mans Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park

The Jim Bell-owned team has recorded more than 4,000 man hours to get the car back together and race-ready. Although the team and drivers remain the same, the car will have the usual Bell Motorsports blue and silver, a departure from the Aston Martin Racing green that the DBR9, owned by O So Fresh founder Michael Fux, displayed at Sebring and St. Petersburg.

"The car looks and feels better than before" Ducote said, "and I am anxious to get it on the new Lime Rock circuit. I am glad to see the silver and blue livery. Terry and Jim have had huge success with these colors in the past."
