Aschenbach to drive Farnbacher Loles Speed GT Porsche

August 9, 2005-Danbury, CT -- 21 year-old racer Lawson Aschenbach will be teaming with Wolf Henzler in this weekend's Denver round of the Speed World Challenge GT series. The Gaithersburg, MD native will be driving the second Farnbacher Loles Porsche GT Cup in his first ever race in the ultra-competitive Speed GT series.

Lawson's most recent success came in the 2005 IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge series where in only 2 races, he made his presence known. In the series' opening round in Atlanta, Lawson set the race's fastest lap. In the 2nd race in Mid-Ohio, Lawson battled pole sitter Ricardo Imery in the rain and with a last lap pass, pulled out an impressive victory.

Aschenbach's racing career started in open wheel cars. Having begun racing at 8 in go-karts, Lawson went on to SCCA National Formula Ford, winning the Southeast series in 2001. During 2 years competing in the Formula Ford 2000 series, Lawson won the prestigious Road to Indy Oval Crown Championship in 2002. Last season, Lawson competed in Formula BMW and, had never driven a GT3 Cup car prior to this season.

Lawson attends Vanderbilt University where he is entering his senior year with a double major in Math and in Engineering Science. In addition, Lawson will also receive a minor in Management of Technology, which helps dramatically in his understanding the dynamics of race set-up and being able to communicate with team technicians.

Lawson's car is sponsored by the King Automotive Group.
