Krohn Racing Enters VIR Grand-Am Rolex Event
This week Krohn Racing entered the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series event at Virginia International Raceway with the No. 76 Krohn Racing Ford Lola with drivers Nic Jonsson and Ricardo Zonta.
"I'm expecting Nic and Ricardo to demonstrate the performance of the Proto-Auto Lola," said Tracy W. Krohn, owner/driver of Krohn Racing. "I will not be joining them at this event with the No. 75 car as my regular day job takes priority at this time of opportunity. Nevertheless, I am committed to seeing the Krohn Racing team win and hoping to make arrangements for the No. 75 car to compete in further rounds."
"In my 26 year tenure as CEO of W&T Offshore, Inc. (WTI -- NYSE), I have never seen a greater time for opportunistic posturing and will be taking advantage of that during the 2009 season. Currently I am only scheduled to race in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June with the Risi-Krohn Ferrari," added Krohn. "I will be joined by Nic and Eric van de Poele. Eric continues as one of our Krohn Racing drivers in 2009."
"We know Tracy will be following the team closely and hopes to be in attendance at as many races as possible," said Krohn Racing Team Manager David Brown. "He knows first-hand the benefits of the development program that the team has conducted and I'm sure he expects to witness us win very soon. The 75 car represents a great opportunity for funded drivers and we anticipate interest."
