ANOTHER CHANCE TO DO WELL FOR SIGALSPORT AT WATKINS GLEN

Los Angeles, September 20, 2005: The last time they ran at Watkins Glen, Gene Sigal and Matt Alhadeff scored a ninth place finish, which is their best ever result of the season so far. For their third appearance of the year at the famous Watkins Glen International Raceway, the two Sigalsport drivers are very motivated to do well since they both know that they should have a good, reliable and fast car and they both enjoy racing on New York State's "Thunder Road".

The Crown Royal 250 event is the twelfth races of the Rolex Series season and only three races are left until the end of Sigalsport's second racing season. For this Rolex Series round, the drivers of the DP and GT classes will race together on the 3.4-mile long course. At the last race in Phoenix, the team gained five championship positions and is now thirteenth in points in the GT class. Sigal and Alhadeff are still in contention to finish in the top ten of the championship and will use all their experience and motivation to score maximum points to achieve their goal next Saturday afternoon in New York.

The Sigalsport Alhadeff Companies / Motul USA / The Speed Gallery / GlycoMax Porsche GT3 Cup No. 05 was prepared by the crew at the Los Angeles shop and once again they all did a very good job to make sure Gene and Matt get the best car ever.

Thanks to the progress made at the last race where only 0.9 seconds separated the 04 car from the best Porsche, realistically the Sigalsport team is aiming for a top seven in GT and perhaps better if Lady Luck stays in the Southern California team's camp.

The beginning of the 2006 season at the Rolex 24 at Daytona is only four months away and Sigalsport is already working on their plan for the future. The team is still looking to test funded drivers at VIR and Mexico and has already started to interview drivers and meet with potential sponsors and partners in preview of what should be the most exciting challenge ever for the Los Angeles based Porsche GT racing team.

The Crown Royal 250 will be televised live next Saturday, September 24 at 3:00 PM ET on Speed Channel.
