Law to Drive ACEMCO Motorsports Ferrari at ALMS Petit Le Mans Enduro

Darren Law is excited to be a part of the 1,000 miles of grueling sports car action that will take place outside the town of Braselton, Georgia October, 15-18 as the American Le Mans Series visits the undulating and fantastic Road Atlanta for the much anticipated 2003 Petit Le Mans endurance event. Law, from Phoenix, Arizona, will be co-driving the ACEMCO Motorsports #63 Ferrari 360 GT in the GT category with Terry Borcheller also of Phoenix and Shane Lewis of Jupiter, Florida.

This year's Petit Le Mans will be Law's fourth running of the 10 hour event, but will be his debut with the ACEMCO Motorsports team, and he is eager to see what the race will be like from the seat of a Ferrari.

"I've heard really terrific things about this team," says Law, "and I'm flattered that they decided to put me in the car for such a great event. I'm really looking forward to driving a car like the 360 GT. The car is equipped with a paddle shift system, and apparently it is just a blast to drive. It really doesn't get much better than a Ferrari at Petit."

Darren is also happy to be co-driving with his good friend Terry Borcheller, who incidentally is competing against him in the Grand American Rolex Sportscar series.

Darren had this to say about his ALMS teammate. "Terry and I go way back. We used to be instructors together at the Bondurant Driving School and developed a friendly rivalry over the years. We kind of moved through the same series' at about the same time, and even though we are quite serious about racing each other on track there is a lot of mutual respect, and we have developed a good friendship because of that respect. It will be fun to drive as his teammate for a change!"

Road Atlanta has always been one of Darren's favorite tracks, and he has had success there in the past. The track has gone through some changes in the past few years, but Law still ranks the facility high on his list of race circuits.

"Road Atlanta is definitely one of those tracks that I enjoy racing on. It has a wonderful history and even though areas like "The Dip" were taken out, it is still a challenging racetrack that really rewards a good driver. I think the first time I ever even saw the place was when I came here driving in the Super Touring series, and the track just seemed like it had a natural flow to it."
