Rehm returns to racing at Mont Tremblant

Mont Tremblant, Que (May 21 04)--Multiple Skip Barber Formula Dodge champion Josh Rehm will race a Ferrari 360GT this weekend in the Grand American 6 Hours of Tremblant with Falcon Racing. Rehm, who won the Grandprix.com "Young Driver of the Year" Award in 2000, will team with Nick Longhi and Lawrence Stoll for the event as the picturesque track kicks off its 40th season of racing.

Rehm hasn't raced since running in the 2002 Barber Dodge Pro Series, where he just missed out on tenth position in the overall championship despite not running the full schedule. Rehm took last season off from the sport to complete his studies in philosophy and geography at the University of Vermont, and is looking forward to racing this weekend.

"I am really excited to be racing again," said Rehm. "Having completed my studies, I feel like I will be able to bring 100% focus on the race this weekend. This is a tremendous track, and even though this is our first race together as a team, it's a long race, and I think we could be competitive."

Fellow American Pat Long, who took the Grandprix.com Young Driver Award in 2001, will join Rehm on the grid. Long, who currently serves as a factory Porsche driver, is racing with Doncaster Racing in the SGS category this weekend in a 911 GT3.

The event will see forty entries competing in the endurance classic as Grand Am continues to experience growth through the 2004 season.
