Frisselle brothers impressed with Synergy Racing's Porsche-powered Daytona Prototype debut

MIAMI, Fla. (December 7, 2005) -- Synergy Racing's Rx.com No. 8 Porsche-powered Doran JE-4 Daytona Prototype made is debut this week at the Hoosier Tire Test at Homestead-Miami Speedway with brothers Burt and Brian Frisselle at the wheel. Right out of the box, the Rx.com Porsche-powered entry was among the quickest in the 20 Daytona Prototype field, turning the third fastest time on the opening day of the test despite getting a late afternoon start due to final adjustments needed for the new power plant.

Both Frisselle brothers were amazed at the difference the new Porsche engine made to the Doran chassis.

"It was a totally different driving style than what we had last season," remarked 24-year-old Burt. "The new Porsche engine completely changes the balance of the chassis. We can do so much more with it now. After only a few laps, both Brian and I were very encouraged."

"I couldn't be more excited about the new Porsche engine," said 21-year-old Brian. "The change was more than we ever expected with the chassis. It's very exciting, and a great way to start our 2006 run."

Synergy Racing spent part of the second day working through the details of the new engine management system the Rx.com Porsche-powered entry now carries.

"I feel this was a very successful test for us. We now know what we need for the new engine management system, which is exactly why Burt and I wanted to get in the car prior to the January test in Daytona," explained Brian.

After 11 months of racing, the Frisselle brothers will take a break to return to their home in Maui and the spend the holidays with their family before jumping back behind the wheel of the Rx.com Porsche-powered Doran right after New Year's for Pre-Season Testing at Daytona International Speedway, January 4-7. The 2006 Rolex Sports Car Series will kick off with the Rolex 24 At Daytona, January 28-29.
