AJR - Petersen Motorsports/White Lightning Porsche GT3 RS:
"It was a good drive during the night, I don't mind driving during the dark here at Le Mans. The minor problems are to be expected with us driving the car hard for hours. I asked for a massage after my two shifts during the night and I'm still waiting!"

AJR - Petersen Motorsports/White Lightning Porsche GT3 RS:
"It's a hard track to drive during the night and I'm glad it's getting light out now. It's not sunny this morning so it was easier to go through some of the circuit. I remember in years past not being able to see ahead of myself because of the sun. That is not a problem today and I can concentrate on driving rather than trying to see."

The distinctive alliance of Alex Job Racing with Petersen Motorsports/ White Lightning Racing is a cooperative effort with members of both Alex Job Racing and Petersen /White Lighting preparing and crewing the car. While rivals in the GT-class of the ALMS, the two have joined to create a formidable team to compete at the prestigious endurance race. Neither team has competed at Le Mans before. Michael Petersen is the car owner while Alex Job acts as entrant and manager. Dale White is the program manager for the operation.
