SIGALSPORT DRIVERS DETERMINED TO SHINE AT MID-OHIO

SIGALSPORT ANNOUNCES FOUR NEW PARTNERS THIS WEEK!

Los Angeles, August 22, 2005: Following their best finish of the season at the last race in Watkins Glen, Sigalsport is preparing for the EMCO Gears Classic at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course scheduled for Saturday, August 27.

Gene Sigal and Matt Alhadeff will co-drive the Sigalsport Alhadeff Companies / Motul USA / The Speed Gallery / GlycoMax Porsche GT3 at Mid-Ohio for the tenth round of the 2005 Rolex Sports Car Series.

"I think it's really awesome that we got a single digit result at Watkins Glen last week" announced Matt Alhadeff. "I think that the best part about it is that Gene and I drove our best lap times within a couple hundredths of a second and I think it just shows that all the teaching he gave throughout my career has paid off. Also, I think the team is a lot more organized now and it seems like everyone seems to know what his role is much better than before" added Matt. "We all really want to do well; it seems like everyone is really working and doing the best they can."

"At Mid-Ohio, I am hoping for another top ten finish" Alhadeff continued. "Realistically, I don't know if we'll be able to get into the top five but it would be really nice if we did. I think that if everyone does his part and we all stay focused, we should be able to pull it off, no problem" finished Matt.

In addition to racing in the Rolex Series, Gene Sigal and Matt Alhadeff will also compete in the Grand Am Cup event to get acquainted with the track and acquire additional experience before the GT race on Saturday.

On another exciting note, Sigalsport is proud to introduce four new partners this week. GlycoMax becomes the official performance drink of the Sigalsport team. Piloti Driving Shoes will supply the Sigalsport crew and drivers with state-of-the-art racing shoes, starting at Mid-Ohio. Mechanix will supply performance driven mechanic's gloves to the crew and Guarneros Racing Wear, a Mexican sportswear provider, will sponsor the team at the Mexico City season finale.

SPEED Channel will televise the EMCO Gears Classic at 12:00 Noon ET on Sunday, August 28.
