MILLVILLE, NJ, July 17, 2010 - The JLowe Racing Porsche GT3 Cup took to the hot Thunderbolt track during Saturday's qualifying session, with team driver Johannes van Overbeek behind the wheel. Johannes was determined to give the team a good starting position for Sunday's race and he delivered as promised. In addition to the dramatic improvement from Friday's lap times, the #64 JLowe Racing Porsche was the fastest Porsche in the session.

Team owner and co-driver Jim Lowe watched from pit lane as Johannes continued to improve, until turning 1:22.864 on his sixth lap. Lowe was pleased with the result. "Considering where we were last night, we've made huge gains. I'm very happy with 12th on the grid. Roger and the crew did a great job in improving the car and with the help of Johannes, they put us in good position for the race. We're the fastest Porsche and what we see in front of us on the grid doesn't scare us. We're all looking forward to tomorrow's race."

Johannes van Overbeek felt he could have posted an even quicker lap, but was held up by a slower car on one of his hot laps. "Normally I would be very upset with 12th, but considering where we started, this was a really good result. My best lap today was two seconds faster than yesterday's best lap. My hat is off to the JLowe crew. They continued to work it and now we have a very competitive car for tomorrow."
