HOMESTEAD, Fla. (March 1, 2002)– Intersport Racing announced today that they have purchased a new MG/Lola to contest the entire 2002 American Le Mans Series schedule in the LMP 675 class.

The #37 Intersport Racing/Banana Joe’s MG Lola will make its debut at the 12 Hours of Sebring on March 16, with Jon Field, Duncan Dayton and Mike Durand piloting the prototype machine.

“We are looking forward to running the full ALMS season and competing for the LMP 675 championship,” said Intersport driver Clint Field.

The team is no stranger to the Lola chassis, as they have contested a Lola/Judd for the past two seasons in both ALMS and the Rolex Sports Car Series top prototype classes.

“We are excited to be working with Lola again with this new MG product,” Field said.“ We have some great results in the Lola chassis and are looking to continue our success.”

Jon Field tested the car in Atlanta and said the car has great potential to have a podium finish at every event.
