Farnbacher Loles Racing qualified fourth on the GT2 grid for Saturday's American Le Mans Series race at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis. The four-hour race will be the first on the 4.048-mile road course for the team and two of its three drivers.

Dirk Werner of Kissenbruck, Germany, led the class for most of the Friday qualifying session with his first flying lap of two minutes 6.593 seconds (115.115 mph), then relinquished the pole position to the Ferrari contingent that has been strong this year. Werner's co-driver Bryce Miller of Summit, N.J. -- the team driver with previous experience at Road America -- will drive first on Saturday, followed by Porsche factory driver Richard Westbrook of London, England, and Werner.

"I'm pretty confident with the lap I did. I think we did everything right -- there was a short time for us to develop the car in the free practice and the track was new to Richard and me, so I don't see where I could have made any more time. I'm feeling okay for the race, although we still have to work a little bit in the morning warmup to get the race setup," Werner said.

"The track is amazing! It's so fast in some spots and it's really challenging. This track is really good for some great racing. It's just a lot of fun to drive it. I'm really happy to be here."
