ALMS LMP1 Team Intersport Racing Signs Kyle Marcelli For 2009
Barrie, Ontario (January 21st 2009) - Canadian Kyle Marcelli will has recently been signed by American LeMans Series LMP1 race winning team Intersport Racing. The experienced and well respected Intersport Racing team has signed Marcelli to a development program for 2009. The program consists of a full season behind the wheel in the IMSA Lites Championship in the L1 class and multiple tests behind the wheel of the team's LMP1 prototype car with the opportunity for a race drive.
Team Manager of Intersport Racing Brian Alder commented: "We are very excited about signing Kyle to the 2009 IMSA Lites Presented by Frisby Performance Tires season. Kyle has already proven himself in other series and truly is a rising star of the sport. We are looking forward to competing for the 2009 championship beginning at Sebring in March. This is also a great opportunity for Kyle as he has taken the first step in our ladder system that could lead him into an American Le Mans Series LMP ride for 2010."
Kyle Marcelli said: "I am very excited to be apart of the Intersport Racing team and be affiliated with the prestigious American LeMans Series for 2009. This is almost a dream come true for me. Ever since I can remember my Dad and I used to go to Mosport International Raceway for the American LeMans Series weekend and stand on the outside of corner two watching and cheering as the prototypes go by flat out, only dreaming that it would one day be me. Well I believe that day is almost here."
Marcelli will be travelling down to the team's race shop in mid February for a fitment. The team then takes off for testing in the first week in March prior to the series opener at the famed Sebring International Raceway. They will be there supporting the 12 hr race in the American LeMans Series.
