TAVARES, Fla. -- Aug. 22, 2003 -- After a GT victory last weekend at Mosport, Ontario, American Le Mans Series GT class standout team Alex Job Racing hopes to continue its winning streak with another GT victory at this weekend's Road America 500 in Elkhart Lake, Wis. The Florida-based team will prepare its two Porsches for the four-mile road course. The No. 23 and 24 McKenna Porsche/mail2web.com™ Porsche 911 GT3 RS racing machines will be piloted by Lucas Luhr of Monaco and Sascha Maassen of Raeren, Belgium. Luhr and Maassen will be joined by last weekend's GT winners Jorg Bergmeister of Langenfeld, Germany and Timo Bernhard of Miesau, Germany who will co-drive the No. 24 Porsche 911 GT3 RS and hope to win two consecutive races after last weekend's victory.

During last year's American Le Mans Series debut at the at the 12-turn picturesque road course, Alex Job Racing finished first and second in GT class. Luhr broke the track record for GT qualifying with a lap time of 2:12.862. Bergmeister and Bernhard won their first ALMS race at Road America last year. "It was a good win last year, the course is nice and wide so there are many places to overtake and be overtaken by cars. I like driving this circuit because of the long length of the course. Jorg and I will try again to win this weekend," No. 24 driver Bernhard said.

Alex Job Racing has had a triumphant season so far, most recently winning last week at the Toronto Grand Prix of Mosport in Ontario, Canada, giving Alex Job his third GT win at the Canadian track (previous wins in 1999 and 2000).

Based in Tavares, Fla., Alex Job Racing serves as a race prep, chassis-building and tuning facility. On a day-to-day basis, team owners Alex and Holly Job are involved in the growth and administrative functions of the team and business.
