ACEMCO Motorsports on Pole at Mosport in GT1

Bowmanville, Canada -- ACEMCO Motorsports driver Terry Borcheller recorded the teams first ever American Le Mans Series pole position today. The team will pace the GT1 field to the green for tomorrow's two-hour-and-forty-five minute race at Mosport International Raceway.

Borcheller posted a time of 1:13.450 with an average speed of 121 mph to best the GT1 field. This time was nearly a half second better than the cars fastest practice time.

The ACEMCO Motorsports team worked feverishly throughout the practice sessions fine tuning the suspension of the Saleen S7-R. Borcheller together with co-driver Johnny Mowlem will have the task of staying ahead of the GT1 field tomorrow.

"I got totally crossed up in turn two, I think I wet myself," exclaimed Borcheller. "It was nice to get out of the car and see the top of three little green lights illuminated after qualifying. The S7 has always been good here and it was nice to be able to give the team a small reward for all of the hard work the past few years. We tweaked on the suspension all through practice, the feedback from Johnny and myself really made the car work in qualifying. We were able to get the rear-end settled and I had a lot of grip. I hope we can carry the effort, enthusiasm and result through to the race. We are going to need to push the pace in the race. We will need a consistent car over the entire distance."

"What a lap by Terry," said Jeff Giangrande, team owner. "It is a nice shot in the arm for the whole team. The guys work hard and when you can come out on top of the Vettes it is a real testament to team work. We will celebrate, but now the taste for a win gets even stronger. The car has progressed nicely since Infineon."
