BAM! (British American Motorsport) took delivery of its new Porsche 911 GT3 RSR late Tuesday evening, Feb. 10. Technical director Tim Munday, welcomed the new arrival to the team shop in Stuart, Fla.

The BAM! crew is hard at work preparing the No. 43 YES Network RSR for its debut at the 12 Hours of Sebring. The race, first in the 2004 American Le Mans Series, is set for March 20 on the 3.7-mile Sebring International Raceway road course in Sebring, Fla.

The BAM! race car, transporter and team uniforms will carry the team's new logo. The logo reflects the team's British and American heritage.

safety first

BAM! crew members will all wear helmets in pit lane this year. BAM!'s crew chief, Matt Bishop, initiated the safety measure.

"I don't bike without a helmet, I don't snowboard without a helmet, so why would I stand next to cars going 60 miles an hour without a helmet?" he explained. "Why wait until someone gets hurt before we spend $100 to save their head? It's the same with safety glasses, which we always wear - I haven't seen the price on a set of eyeballs. On safety issues, I would rather lead than follow."
