The No. 93 mail2web.com, Alex Job Racing -- Petersen Motorsports/White Lightning Racing Porsche has kept its LM GT class pole position during the first two hours of the 71st running of the 24 Heures du Mans. Lucas Luhr started the race and drove a flawless stint with Sascha Maassen taking over the driving duties approximately an hour into the race. Emmanuel Collard took over the wheel for the third stint of the race and had to pit four laps early due to a part on the shifter mechanism breaking. The highly organized team successfully repaired the part in record time of two and a half minutes and sent Luhr into the car for his second stint of the race. The team may have to do an extensive repair into the race.

AJR -- Petersen Motorsports/White Lightning Porsche GT3 RS:
"It is really hot in that car and at first it took some adjustments. An hour into my driving I felt good and now I handed over the car to Sascha. I will get some rest and cool down and be ready to go. The Michelins feel good and everything is good so far."

AJR -- Petersen Motorsports/White Lightning Porsche GT3 RS:
"So far it everything feels good. The tires are holding up well with the warm track conditions. The Porsche feels good, I'm just ready for the sun to go down and cool off!"

AJR -- Petersen Motorsports/White Lightning Porsche GT3 RS:
"Other than the shifting part causing me to be sloppy with my shifting, the stint was good. I am actually disappointed that I had to come in early because I was getting into a rhythm. I will look forward to my next time in the car."
