TWO TEAMS TO LEASE TEAM SCANDIA FERRARIS

10 April, 1997

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Team Scandia CEO Andrew Evans announced today that the team's two Ferrari 333SPs have been leased to separate ventures that plan to enter the cars in all of the races that make up the Professional SportsCar Racing, Inc., (SportsCar ) 1997 schedule. One of the cars will be leased to Central Arkansas Racing Service’s, Inc. (CARS), an Arkansas corporation headed by long-time racing engineer Sam Garrett, and the other will be leased to Dibos Racing, a Peruvian team headed by Eduardo Dibos. Evans, who is also the chairman of the SportsCar sanctioning body, announced his intention to divest himself of the cars after Scandia won the SUPERFLO 12 HOURS of Sebring earlier this month.

Both cars will compete in the April SportsCar-sanctioned Exxon World SportsCar event at Road Atlanta. The CARS entry will continue to be sponsored by the Acxiom Corporation with Rob Morgan the primary driver and a co-driver to be announced at Road Atlanta. Dibos is the principal of Dibos Racing, but will continue to co-drive his Riley & Scott car throughout the 1997 season with Jim Pace. Fermin Velez will serve as both the team manager and primary driver for the car entered under the Dibos banner, with Neto Jo chamowitz, a young Peruvian talent being promoted by Dibos, serving as his co-driver. Team Scandia will continue to participate in the Indy Racing League (IRL) as well as in other events controlled by sanctioning bodies that do not conflict with the SportsCar organization.
