Grease Monkey Racing Comes Off Successful 2-day Test in Preparation for Miami 250 at Homestead.

Los Angeles, Ca., September 14, 2004---After a week's postponement because of the devastation in Florida caused by Hurricane Frances, round 6 of the Rolex Grand-Am series will take place at Homestead Miami Raceway on September 18th and 19th.

Coming off their best result of the season, a fourth, in the last Rolex Grand-Am series race at Watkins Glen, Grease Monkey Racing is ready to podium in Homestead. A few weeks after the Watkins Glen round, Sigal and Brix spent 2-days at Buttonwillow Raceway in Southern California assessing new chassis & suspension set-ups in preparation for the rest of the season.

Team manager, Jean Marchioni is really excited with the prospects of finishing on the podium at Homestead, "The test went great. We had a chance to try some different shocks and suspension settings. As well as work with the aerodynamics. I think we found something that will work well for the next few races and hopefully help us land on the podium in Homestead."

"I am very impressed with Harrison Brix's technical knowledge and work ethic. He has a very clear understand of the GT3 Porsche and works very well with Gene. They both have a similar driving style, which makes setting the car easier for the crew. I honestly feel we have one of the best driver line-ups in SGS," continued Marchioni.
