NEW CAR, NEW COLORS & A NEW WEBSITE FOR SIGALSPORT!

Los Angeles, July 22, 2005: The Sigalsport Porsche team will enter a new car and will unveil new car livery at the upcoming Alabama Porsche 250 next week. In addition, the Los Angeles based team tonight is launching their brand new website, www.Sigalsport.com which features team news and photos, series news, season schedule and live race coverage, team customer programs and services and media information for the fans, sponsors and guests.

Following the heavy impact suffered at the Mont Tremblant race, the team was forced to order a brand new tub from Porsche in Germany and after three races in a row at the wheel of the second Sigalsport Porsche GT3 Cup, team owner and driver, Gene Sigal and Matt Alhadeff will return to the series with a brand new #05 Alhadeff Companies / Motul / Sigalsport Porsche GT3 Cup car next week that was prepared in record time by the crew after the last race.

In addition to racing a new car, Sigalsport will unveil new car livery. Sigalsport's Porsches will soon become famous for their bright blue and yellow look. Gene's native Ukrainian flag inspired these new team colors. "We are very excited with the new car and the new livery," announced team owner and driver Gene Sigal. "Creating a new team identity is definitely a step in our plan to take the team to the next level" Sigal continued. "The competition to attract new sponsors and drivers is harsh and we must continually find new ways to market ourselves to increase team awareness, and get an edge on the competition."

"Since Watkins Glen the entire team is working very hard to improve in all departments. Our priority remains to join the top ten teams in the GT ranking. In Alabama we gained six positions and if we continue to do well, we could reach our goal very soon. We also hired an experienced engineer who will join the team for the first time in Alabama and Matt and I are optimistic that if we don't make mistakes, we should be right there at the end."

In addition to racing in the Rolex Series, Gene Sigal and Matt Alhadeff will also compete in the Grand Am Cup event in Alabama to get acquainted with the track and acquire additional experience before the GT race on Sunday.

The Porsche 250 at Barber Motorsports, Alabama is set for Sunday, July 31 at noon Eastern Time and will be televised live on Speed TV the same day.
