PRIMETIME, "RIGHT ON PACE"
Hollywood, Florida February 25th 2010 Primetime Race Group completed a very successful debut test as part of the American LeMans Series official testing at Sebring International Raceway this past Monday and Tuesday. Team drivers Kyle Marcelli and Joel Feinberg showed very competitive pace giving the team great confidence going into the 58th running of the Mobile 1 12 Hours of Sebring on March 17-20 2010.
The test also marked the first outing for the new LMPC class prototypes. With Oreca staff on hand, the new cars showed very well with a good pace that fit comfortably between the LMP and GT class cars. Mechanically the cars gave off a positive first impression with very little issues over the two days of testing which was promising for the brand new race car.
Primetime Race Group drivers Kyle Marcelli and Joel Feinberg adapted well to the new car, and the #11 entry was the quickest car on track multiple times throughout the two days. To build on the driver's feedback, team engineers and crew worked diligently and in a very tactical order to finding a good base line set-up and that continued improving the performance and reliability in every session. At the end of the two day test the entire Primetime team left the track extremely satisfied with their results and are looking forward to returning in March.
"This was a special two days for me, it requires so much passion, work, and persistence to get to this level of motorsport. I'm very happy to have Joel Feinberg and the Primetime Race Group take me under their wing for 2010. I feel we have a very good package in place and I know at the end of the day we all have the same goal and that's winning", said Kyle Marcelli.
"Our approach to this test was to shake down the car, see how things worked, and find what the car could do. We ran two solid days of testing and gathered lots of necessary data that will play a big factor in our strategy for the 12 hour. Kyle did a great job in the car and showed a tremendous team spirit that fit right in with the entire crew. I'm looking forward to a great season and great results together", said Joel Feinberg.
With the opening round of the 2010 American LeMans Series only 3 weeks away the team will be busy in preparation for the most prestigious event on the calendar. The Primetime Race Group plans to hold their inaugural 2010 formal launch party in the coming weeks where they plan to publicize their sponsor partners, news announcements, and create lots excitement leading into the opening race.
