FARNBACHER LOLES MOTORSPORTS POSTS FASTEST TIMES IN OPENING DAY OF DAYTONA TESTING

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (January 4, 2007) -- Farnbacher Loles Motorsports' reputation for meticulous preparation and high-level driving continued to grow as the Danbury, CN-based team posted the fastest overall time in the GT class, as well as the top times in the first and third sessions, and the second-best time in the middle frame, during the first day of testing in the Roar Before the Rolex 24.

Dirk Werner's No. 85 Farnbacher Loles Motorsports/Recaro/Shoes For Crews Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car posted a time of 1:53.036 at an average speed of 113.380 mph to pace the field in the final afternoon session, to set the fastest time of the day. Werner also posted the second-fastest time in the middle session when he laid down a 1:54.051 at a speed of 112.371. The smooth demeanor and attention to detail that Werner, the 2005 Michelin Supercup champion, exhibits perfectly compliment the Farnbacher Loles crew's flawless car setup.

Teammate Craig Stanton posted the fastest time of 1:53.409 at a speed of 113.007 mph in the first practice session in the No. 88 Farnbacher Loles Motorsports/Baysaver/Accubid Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car. "I'm really excited to be part of such a high-level organization whose focus is on putting drivers on the podium every race," said Stanton after the final test session. "The crew has done a terrific job in setting up these new Porsches with very little time, which is a true testament to their professionalism. This entire month will be a steady evolution towards the 24 Hours of Daytona for our entire team."

Team owner Greg Loles echoed Stanton's sentiments, "All things considered, for the limited amount of time that we have had these cars, I thought our crew did a fabulous job preparing the cars for the Daytona tests. Today went very well, and I'm looking forward to our continued improvement over the weekend."
