TEAM KMA DRIVERS ON THE RIGHT TRACK

Bloomingdale, GA (February 14, 2007) - Team KMA Racing's Formula BMW team with drivers Jeffrey Petriello, Julia Landauer and Mike Hill finished an extensive two-day test at Roebling Road on Tuesday posting very favorable results. "All our drivers progressed tremendously over the two days," stated Team KMA co-principal Jon Lewis. "You could see the determination in their eyes and the dedication to be the best at their craft. We were all very impressed with how rapidly they learned the limits of the car and the consistency each were able to project."

"The entire team has really bonded into a tight-knit group," added Team KMA's other co-principal and Formula BMW Team Manager, Ingo Strackerjan. "From our Chief Engineer (Lucas Strackerjan) through our lead mechanics (Raffi Tashdjian, Justin Herring & Mark Elliott) to our drivers, the communication, understanding and dedication has become really evident throughout the team. We were also very impressed that by the end of the first day, all our drivers were posting times equal to or better than lap times we have heard from other teams on the newly repaved track."

The team had to scrub the second day of a two-day test at Carolina Motorsports Park a couple weeks ago due to snow. "It was a welcome two days of testing after our less than optimum conditions at Carolina, however the second day at Carolina was not wasted as the team was able to use the time to familiarize the drivers with learning how to analyze data, to work on media and public relations training, as well as getting to know each other on a more personal level," commented Lewis. "The weather at Roebling Road was perfect and really enabled us to give our drivers the full benefit of track time. We'll be heading back to Savannah in a few weeks for more testing as well as at Road Atlanta to prepare for the upcoming Official test days."

Team KMA Racing, sponsored in part by Cabo Wabo Cantina, is a combined effort between American Spirit Racing of Cape Coral, Florida and Atlantic Racing Team of Halifax, Nova Scotia.
