Melanie Paterson will join AutoCon Motorsport for the upcoming Chevy Presents Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta. Melanie will drive the #12 LMP1 Riley & Scott MKIII C/Elan with regular team drivers Michael Lewis and Tomy Drissi.

"I am really glad to be back for Petit Le Mans and to be back with Michael and Tomy," Melanie said. "We had a strong performance last year and hope to improve upon that this year. They have worked hard with developing the car and engine package and we hope the hard work pays off."

"I am delighted to have Melanie back," says Michael Lewis. "She really stepped in and did a fine job last year and we're are looking forward to her help in getting AutoCon onto the podium."
