Risi Competizione and Krohn Racing Partner Again in 2010

Houston, TX -- February 23, 2010. Krohn Racing and Risi Competizione, the 2008 American Le Mans Series (ALMS) GT2 Championship winning team, announce their continuing partnership for three races in 2010. Krohn will be competing in the No. 61 Ferrari 430 GTE with the easily identifiable green-and-blue livery.

Tracy W. Krohn, Team Owner/Driver of Krohn Racing, and Giuseppe Risi, Team Principal of Risi Competizione, both of Houston, Texas, begin their fourth season of racing partnership with the 12 Hours of Sebring on March 20, 2010. Tracy will drive with Krohn Racing regular, Sweden's Nic J0x00f6nsson, and Belgium's endurance hero Eric van de Poele. In addition to the Sebring classic race, the trio will also compete at the renowned 24 Hours of Le Mans, June 12-13. Krohn and J0x00f6nsson will pair for a second ALMS race with the 6-Hour Monterey Sports Car Classic at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on May 22.

"We are happy to be back with Risi Competizione in the Ferrari 430 GT for our fourth season together," said Tracy W. Krohn, Founder, Chairman and CEO of W&T Offshore (NYSE: WTI), an independent oil and natural gas acquisition, exploitation and exploration company. "We can always count on a well-prepared car and a professional team with Risi. They have guided us to two podium finishes at Le Mans and one podium finish at Sebring in three years. We obviously are doing something right with this partnership and hope for more successes in 2010."

"I'm delighted that Tracy will be back with us once more," said Risi Competizione Team Principal Giuseppe Risi. "It means a great deal to us to continue our racing partnership with Krohn Racing as, together, we have achieved some great results. Tracy has enjoyed a great 12 months in racing, and obviously feels very at home in the Ferrari and within the team. There's no reason that won't continue into 2010, and we're all looking forward to the renewed challenge that the GT class presents. It gets a little harder each year as the bar is raised in terms of competition, speed and technology, but we are more than equal to that challenge and, indeed, embrace it."
