JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- December 18, 2003 -- Porsche factory drivers Sascha Maassen and Lucas Luhr, the most successful driver pair in American road racing history since the Brumos Porsche team of Hurley Haywood and Peter Gregg, will join the Red Bull Brumos Porsche-powered Fabcar prototype for the Rolex 24 hour event January 31 -- February 1 at Daytona International Speedway.

They will complement the regular pair of drivers, David Donohue, who came within a few positions in the last race of winning the 2003 Rolex championship in the same car, and Darren Law, a veteran driver from Phoenix and the latest addition to the team. Both Law and Donohue have finished on the podium at the Rolex 24 in the past. In the 2003 Rolex 24, Donohue lead in the Red Bull car when a mechanical problem sidelined him for the race.

"Brumos Porsche is very pleased to have Sascha and Lucas on our team," said Brumos team owner Bob Snodgrass. "They represent the world-class drivers we have always sought after at Brumos, and signify the special relationship we have always had with the Porsche factory."

Maassen and Luhr have combined for three straight wins at the 12 Hours of Sebring in their Alex Job Racing Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and have won back-to-back American Le Mans Series championships as well as the GT class win this past year at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The Brumos Porsche racing team, best known for the multi-year championships of the late Peter Gregg and Hurley Haywood, have also seen Walter Rohrl, Jacky Ickx, Bob Wollek, Rolf Stommelen and A.J. Foyt at the wheel of their famous red, white, and blue entries.
