West Factory Driver Duncan Ende Sweeps Inaugural IMSA Lites Event with Back to Back Wins

Braselton, Georgia Duncan Ende today achieved back to back victories in the first IMSA Lites event in 13 years at the historic Road Atlanta circuit. Competing for the 2006 IMSA Lites 2 Championship Ende took his West WR1000 to victory in both races on this double-header weekend.

Said driver Duncan Ende, "I was worried about learning the track coming into this race having never raced here before. I know the history of Road Atlanta and it's been a dream come true to compete here in IMSA Lites. My crew from West and the West WR1000 performed brilliantly for me today and I look forward to adding to my points lead in the championship."

West Team Principle Ted Spooner, "I'm really proud of Duncan and the job he did today especially in the second race. He defended his lead on every lap against a very experienced and successful racer in Eric Vassian also running a West WR1000. West cars finished 1st through 5th in the Lites 2 class and first overall with Duncan's win.

West is the championship winning constructor of sports racing prototypes. With over 75 SCCA National and Regional wins and 3 SCCA National Championships in factory and customer racecars, West is the premier constructor of sports prototype racecars. For 2006 West has been selected as one of three constructors providing race cars to the International Motor Sports Association's 2006 Championship IMSA Lites. This historic prototype racing support series has been restored after a 13 year hiatus to support the American Le Mans series, the premier prototype and GT endurance racing series in the world.
