Miracle Motorsports Conquers Round 2 Oo The ALMS Series

Lexington, OH (June 27, 2004) Miracle Motorsports, with drivers Ian James, and James Gue, piloted the #10 Lola Nissan LMP2 entry to a third place victory in the LMP2 class in Round 2 of the American LeMans Series from Mid-Ohio SportsCar course.

Recently signing a yearlong contract with Yokohama Tires, Miracle Motorsports was pleased to bring home the podium finish. Early into the event, around lap 40, Ian James (Orlando, FL) was piloting through the carousel when he was hit by another competitor. Damages resulted in removing a part of the wing that was crucial to the downforce in the car. Unfortunately, laps times then increased by 12-15 seconds per lap.

James Gue of Cumming, GA then entered the #10 entry on lap 70. "James did a spectacular job, as did Ian, babying the car as necessary in order to maintain position, and not let the 4th place car catch up," stated John Macaluso, team owner and additional driver of the Nissan powered Lola. "Ending up with a 3rd place podium finish is very satisfying given the circumstances."
