Miracle Motorsports Brings Home First Place Class Victory in Lime Rock Park

Lime Rock, CT (July 5, 2004) Miracle Motorsports/Yokohama/ADVAN, with drivers Ian James, James Gue, and team owner/driver John Macaluso, piloted the #10 Lola Nissan LMP2 entry to a first place victory in the LMP2 class in Round 3 of the American LeMans Series from Lime Rock Park in the northwestern corner of Connecticut.

After qualifying 4th in the LMP2 class, the Lola powered Nissan fought a hard battle to take over first place. Starting the race in the #10 was Ian James (Orlando, FL), Ian handed over control of the car after approximately the one hour and ten minute mark, to James Gue of Cumming, GA.

John Macaluso (Winter Haven, FL) did several laps in practice, but chose to let the boys finish out the race. "They were doing so well and were in such a groove, I opted out of a driver change so that the pace that they were running wouldn't be interrupted by an additional pit stop," stated John. "We are very pleased with the way the car was handling, and luckily the weather decided to cooperate after the initial sprinkle of rain at the beginning of the race. The #10 Miracle Motorsports/Yokohama/ADVAN entry wishes to thank Benihana Restaurants for signing on as a cosponsor for this event as well."

"I am once again thrilled to have Ian and James on board. They are a tremendous team that works so well together. We look forward to the week off, and then heading out to Sonoma for Round 4 of the ALMS series," Macaluso said.
