TAVARES, Fla. -- July 24, 2003 -- Alex Job Racing will pick up where the team left off last month at the second round of the American Le Mans Series season in Atlanta to travel across the United States to California for the Infineon Grand Prix of Sonoma on July 25, 26 and 27. Lucas Luhr of Monaco and Sascha Maassen of Raeren, Belgium will return to the No. 23 McKenna Porsche/mail2web.com™ Porsche GT3 RS. Luhr and Maassen will be joined by teammates Jörg Bergmeister of Langenfeld, Germany and Timo Bernhard of Miesau, Germany who will share driving duties in the team's No. 24 Porsche GT3 RS.

No. 24 driver Bernhard holds the fast race lap record for the GT class at Infineon Raceway. Bernhard set a quick lap time of 1:38.614 around the 2.53-mile road racing circuit during last year's Infineon Grand Prix of Sonoma. "I hope to even better my lap time this year," said Bernhard. "It's going to be good competition, which is what I like."

"We've had some good luck and bad luck here in California. Last year the rain proved to make it an interesting race, though I don't think we're going to have that problem this year. I'm looking forward to going head-to-head with Petersen Motorsports. We were racing together as a team at Le Mans last month and now we're vying for the podium. The competition and friendly rivalry makes it fun," team owner Alex Job commented. "

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.
