Archangel Team enters prototype in Sears Point American Le Mans race
BRASELTON, Ga. (April 28, 2002) -- Archangel Motorsports, a racing team with a championship pedigree in road racing, has joined the field for Round Two of the 2002 American Le Mans Series championship, the May 19 Grand Prix of Sonoma presented by Fosters at California's Sears Point Raceway.
The team will run a Lola B2K40-Ford Prototype in the LMP 675 class at Sears Point as it makes its first American Le Mans Series appearance of the season. The LMP 675 class features smaller, less powerful Prototypes than the sleek LMP 900 machines that headline ALMS events.
Drivers for the team will be Ben Devlin of England and Dave McEntee of Novato, Calif. Devlin, a racing sensation in England as a teenager, drove for Archangel in part of the 2001 season, scoring two class wins in another form of racing and finishing second in the LMP 675 class in his American Le Mans Series debut in October in Audi presents Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta.
McEntee is an instructor at the Jim Russell Racing School at Sears Point Raceway and knows the 2.52-mile racing circuit as well as anyone. He made his ALMS debut in last year's event at Sears Point, driving a GT Porsche for Dick Barbour Racing.
The two-hour, 45-minute Grand Prix of Sonoma presented by Fosters will be televised live by the SPEED Channel beginning at 4 p.m. (EDT). Live coverage by the American Le Mans Series Radio Web can be heard online at www.imsaracing.net.
