Petersen/ White Lightning's Patrick Long To Be Guest on ALMS Web Chat
LAS VEGAS, Nev., February 25, 2005 -- New Petersen Motorsports/ White Lightning Racing driver Patrick Long (Las Vegas, Nev.) will be a special guest on Monday's American Le Mans Series (ALMS) Web Chat. The live internet chat will allow sports car fans from around the world to email questions to the 2004 LM GT (now GT2) 24 Hours of Le Mans champion. Questions for Long, America's only Porsche factory driver, can be sent through www.americanlemans.com starting at 8 pm (EST) on Monday, February 28th.
Long, who will co-drive the No. 31 Westward Ho Casino/ MMPIE/ PAWS/ Michelin Porsche 911 GT3 RSR in 2005 with Jorg Bergmeister (Langenfield, Germany), will be making his second start at the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring on March 19th. The California native is considered a prodigy in American motorsports. While only 23, Long has taken the sport by storm having stepped from the high intensity world of international karting to European formula car racing and, in 2004, fulltime into sports car racing. After competing in the Michael Petersen-owned Porsche at Le Mans last season, he completed his first full season in the ALMS with six top-five GT2 finishes and sixth in the GT2 driver standings.
