Bad Luck at Lime Rock for Limoges

Lakeville, CT (28 May 07)- Valerie Limoges was unable to finish the Lime Rock Park Grand-Am KONI Challenge race on Monday after the No. 4 Blackforest Motorsports Ford Mustang FR500C suffered a terminal mechanical problem just past the mid-point of the 138-lap race before she could turn the Mustang over to co-driver Travis Walker.

Limoges had qualified twenty-third for the race, but moved up steadily to eighth position before the white and red machine began to leave a tell tale trail of smoke, forcing Limoges to end her day early.

"I'm just really disappointed," said Limoges. "Both times I've raced here at Lime Rock, I've had a problem like this so it is pretty frustrating. We'd made some good progress during the race, and I think Trevor could have come home with some good points today. But we just didn't make it to the end, so I guess we'll have to look forward to Mosport now."

Limoges has tested at Mosport in formula cars, but next weekend's KONI event will mark her competitive debut on the famed Canadian circuit.

The sister No.5 USG Sheetrock/Ramset Tools Mustang of Tom Nastasi and Terry Borcheller finished an unlucky 13th after Nastasi was punted off course at the entry of the Uphill corner while running in the top five.
