DISTINCTIVE CANADIAN FLAVOUR A FEATURE OF ABC'S AMERICAN LE MANS SERIES BROADCASTS

BOWMANVILLE, ON (APRIL 1, 2008) -- When the American Le Mans Series visits the west coast of Florida this weekend for the Acura Sports Car Challenge of St. Petersburg, a Canadian motorsports great will be there to bring the action home (ABC, Sat. April 5, live- 1:30 pm- 3:30 pm EDT). Bill Adam, a Canadian sports car racing legend and veteran motorsports broadcaster will serve as ABC's analyst for the race along with the Series' April 19stop in Long Beach, California.

Raised in Burlington, Ontario and currently living in Miami, Florida, the 61 year-old Adam's decorated sports car racing career began in the late1970s. After being hired to drive the factory-backed Group 44 team in the IMSA series in 1980, he and co-driver Bob Tullius piloted a Triumph TR-8 to victories at Mosport Road Atlanta, Road America and the Twelve Hours of Sebring. One of Adam's more memorable wins came at Mosport in 1983, when he and Tullius piloted a Jaguar GTP prototype to victory in a six-hour endurance race. In 1986 and 1987, Adam collected more victories competing in the Rothmans Porsche Cup and also won the Porsche Cup award in recognition of being one of the top Porsche drivers worldwide.
