JMB Racing USA Is Back in The Rolex Series!
Miramar, Florida, May 14, 2004: After having been forced to skip the Phoenix race following a major accident during the Rolex 24 at Daytona, JMB Racing USA is finally back for round 4 of the Rolex Sports Car Series with a newly rebuilt Ferrari 360 Modena GT. The JMB Racing USA #11 Lineltex / The Inn at English Harbour Antigua / Antigua Slipway Ferrari drivers' lineup for the Canadian race will be made up of Edi Gay and Maurizio Mediani from Italy and Iradj Alexander from Switzerland.
After missing two rounds of the 2004 Grand American series, all at JMB Racing USA understand that it will be difficult to go after the coveted GT class title this year, nevertheless JMB Racing USA and its drivers are more motivated than ever and excited about their upcoming racing challenges starting May 23 with the 6 Hours of Mont Tremblant in Quebec.
"This time, we are back!", announced team co-owner Ludovico Manfredi. "It has been a long period of waiting and hard work for our JMB Racing European and American crews but we are proud to be able to rejoin the series with the same winning spirit as before" commented Manfredi, co-owner of the Miramar, Florida based team. "Mont Tremblant is one of the most beautiful racetracks in North America and I am truly very glad we can make our comeback here in Canada."
On the drivers' side, since making its debut at the Rolex 24 at Daytona, JMB Racing USA driver Maurizio Mediani kept busy: he won his first race for JMB Racing in a Ferrari 550 Maranello at the first round of the Italian GT championship in Monza.
