Law Travels to Sonoma for Penultimate 2007 Grand American Series Event
As the Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series presented by Crown Royal Special Reserve rapidly approaches the close of its thus far hotly contested 2007 season, Porsche endurance racer Darren Law heads to northern California for the second to last race of the 2007 Grand-Am season. The Armed Forces Grand-Am 250 will be held this weekend at Infineon Raceway in the wine country hills of Sonoma, California and marks the thirteenth race on the schedule. Law, and teammate David Donohue currently sit sixth in the driver's points standings, only thirteen points out of fifth place.
Law, whose start in the Infineon race will mark his 95th event in the Grand-Am series, is hopeful that the success he has seen with the #58 Red Bull Brumos Porsche Riley so far this year, will continue. Law and Donohue have driven the #58 to a top ten finish in every race this year except for the season opener at the Rolex 24 at Daytona. The Brumos driver duo finished eighth at Infineon last year with what was, at the time, a new car, and with the Brumos crew continually learning more about the Riley chassis, this year's event could see an even more competitive effort.
In addition to the last two events of the Grand American schedule, Law will also compete in three of the last four American Le Mans series events with the Flying Lizard Motorsports team and their #44 Porsche GT3 RSR. Law, who is a contender for the 2007 Porsche Cup, is hoping that strong finishes in both series with Porsche power will allow him to accrue enough points this year for a spot in the top three.
"Its been a good season so far. We've been competitive at each of the Grand-Am races this year, and I think it's a matter of time before we break through for our first win. We should be able to finish in the top five in driver points this year, especially if we have a good finish this weekend. Sears (Infineon) has always been a good track for me. It's a challenging circuit for drivers and cars and it has a great combination of corners and elevation changes that seem to suit my style."
