PERFORMANCE TECH ANNOUNCE 2011 LMP CHALLENGE PROGRAM
One ORECA FLM09 for certain, second entry in the works

Performance Tech owner Brent O'Neill is pleased to announce that his team will return to the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón in 2011. The Hollywood, Fla., based team will be running an ORECA FLM09 car in the LMP Challenge class with sponsorship being provided by Medical Connections, Braille Battery and Ric-Man Construction.

"After several seasons of running a successful IMSA Lites program, the time was right to move into LMPC," O'Neill said. Drivers confirmed are IMSA Lites standout Anthony Nicolosi, former open-wheel and IMSA Lites competitor Jarrett Boon and pro driver and British-born Chris Hall. Hall will be responsible for car and driver development, and will be the lead driver for the three long distance races Sebring, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta.

Brent O'Neill's right-hand man and crew chief Frankie Parzych is very excited to get his hands on the LMPC car, and having worked previously with Hall. Parzych believes Performance Tech can be fighting for race wins immediately. "Chris, Brent and I have great mutual respect for each other, and with our combined experience I expect great things for 2011", the crew chief said.

Performance Tech is hoping to announce a second LMPC car to the program before year's end, and with its 2011 Cooper Tire Prototype Lites Championship program already in place, it expects to have a very busy and fruitful 2011.
