ACEMCO Motorsports Prepared for Road Atlanta

Spring Lake, Michigan -- ACEMCO Motorsports is coming off of a promising fourth place finish at the 12-hours of Sebring last month. The team is looking to realize the potential of the off season upgrades to the number 63/ACEMCO Motorsports Saleen S7-R for round two of the American Le Mans Series to be run at Road Atlanta next week.

Drivers Terry Borcheller and Johnny Mowlem know that the competitive car they drove at Sebring will be even better at Road Atlanta. "We have another piece to the puzzle at Road Atlanta," said Jeff Giangrande, team owner. "We have the Bosch engine management system on the car now. This will help us to really fine tune the motor to maximize horsepower, torque and fuel efficiency. This is a component that will be key to our performance in the rest of the ALMS series as well as at Le Mans."

"We were in a position to finish second at Sebring, but came away with a lot of good progress that will translate into better finishes this year," said Terry Borcheller. "We are able to run a new rear wing at Road Atlanta so that will be a benefit in the high speed turns of one and twelve. I am very optimistic for next week. The car is better under braking and overall handling and that translates into better lap times at a course like Road Atlanta. We still have some upgrades coming for the car and we should have our complete package by Mid-Ohio."

"Sebring ended up being a heart break at the end," said Johnny Mowlem. "We were looking sure for a GT1 podium and also a top six overall finish which in itself is a huge result at a race as tough as Sebring. You always take positives away from any race, and of course we were pleased with how the car had run for the first 11 and a-half-hours. We know we have the car, now it will be another test to see how we match up in more a sprint type format at Road Atlanta. I believe we will show a lot of competitiveness next week. One thing that is a given, is that every member of the ACEMCO team will be giving 110% to make sure the victories come sooner rather than later!"

The Road Atlanta event will be televised live on CBS starting at 12:00 p.m. EST on Sunday, April 17th.

ACEMCO Automotive is based in Spring Lake, Michigan and is an industry leader in the engineering, manufacture and assembly of metal stampings for light trucks, SUVs and passenger cars.
