Burrows bolts to front at Laguna

(Monterey, CA) 18 May 07--It's been so long since Adam Burrows drove at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca that the last time he did, it was just called Laguna Seca.

But on Friday, Burrows showed that for some guys, track time can be overrated as he put the Turner Motorsport BMW 330i on the front row in qualifying for Saturday's Grand-Am KONI Challenge with a fast lap time of 1:42.210-seconds.

Burrows will start the 112-lap race before turning the driving duties over to Trevor Hopwood. The two currently share the KONI Challenge championship points lead in the ST class after the opening three rounds of the 2007 season.

"Well to qualify on the front row after not having driven here in over a decade is a great way to start the weekend," said Burrows. "I have to thank the Turner Motorsport guys because they did a lot of work on this car overnight. We had some engine challenges yesterday and a slight handling imbalance earlier today but, clearly, everything was just perfect for qualifying. I wish I could have gotten the pole for the guys, but I know Trevor (Hopwood) will do another great job tomorrow and hopefully we can keep our momentum up in the points."

The 112-lap ST-Class only KONI race will go green on Saturday afternoon starting at 3:20 PM EST. Tune into www.Grand-Am.com for live event information including live timing and scoring.
