IMSA LITES ACTION HEATS UP AT HOME TRACK

BRASELTON, Ga. September 30 -- Road Atlanta, home track for IMSA Lites constructors Elan and West Race Cars, will host rounds nine and ten of the IMSA Lites presented by Hankook series October 2 and 3.

Many teams don't have to drive far to participate in the 11th annual running of Petit LeMans. Lites One point leader Jonathan Goring, Torrington, Conn., races with Comprent Motorsports based just up the road in Athens, Ga.

"Comprent gave me a terrific car at Mosport and the team is working just as hard to prepare for the Petit LeMans weekend," Goring said. "I am really excited to be racing in Atlanta again."

Lites Two constructor West Race Cars is based south of Road Atlanta. Tom Drewer, Westbourne Point, Austrailia, leads the Lites Two points in his West Race Cars WR1000. Drewer moved to Atlanta at the beginning of the season to be close to the team.

"It will be good heading to a circuit that is my home track at the moment," Drewer said. "We've done a test at Road Atlanta, so it won't be completely new to me."

Round nine will take place Thursday, October 2 at 2:15 p.m. The green flag will drop on round ten at 11:35 a.m. Friday, October 3.
