LUGGAGE EXPRESS TEAM SIGALSPORT BMW READY FOR A GREAT PERFORMANCE AT INFINEON RACEWAY

Los Angeles, CA. (August 21, 2007) -- The Luggage Express Team Sigalsport BMW is ready for another great performance when the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series returns to California August 23-25 for the Armed Forces Grand-Am 250 at Infineon Raceway.

The Luggage Express Team Sigalsport BMW is the only Daytona Prototype team based in California and co-drivers Bill Auberlen and Matt Alhadeff as well as Luggage Express Sigalsport team owner, Gene Sigal, see this race as their second home race of the 2007 season and hope to score a podium finish next Saturday afternoon on the 2.52-mile, 12-turn northern California road course.

Auberlen and Alhadeff finished sixth at the last race and after a successful test at Miller Motorsports Park last week are excited to race amongst the best endurance racers in America.

Auberlen, who won so many races at Infineon Raceway and just scored his 44th career win at Trois Rivieres, Canada, last weekend, loves Infineon Raceway and wants to win another DP race this season like he and Alhadeff scored last March at the Grand Prix of Miami at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The all California Luggage Express Team Sigalsport BMW is proud to be a 100% California team. The team is now based in Hawthorne, California in a 30,000 sq. ft state-of-the-art racing facility located only a few miles from LAX airport. Both drivers, the team owner and full time crew members are California residents and most of them are California natives. In addition, Dinan Engineering, the only BMW engine builder in Daytona Prototype competition, is also based next to Infineon Raceway California and they too want to do well at their home race. It is always a challenge for the team to travel all around the country including races in Florida or Montreal during the season but it is a true joy when the last two races are on the west coast next to the home base.
