Intersport Racing returns to the 24 Hours of Le Mans
Dublin, Ohio - Intersport Racing is returning this weekend to France for the 24 Hours of Le Mans to defend their 2004 P2 class victory. The team is returning with two entries for this year's event. The familiar American Le Mans contending Lola-AER will be teamed with a Courage-AER.
"Lola and Courage have provided the team with excellent race cars for this year's race," exclaimed 2004 Le Mans class winner Clint Field. "To win a 24 hour race is very hard. We know how to win, but luck is also needed."
The team has put together an outstanding international driver lineup for the 2005 race. The #32 Lola entry will consist of Gregor Fisken, Great Britain, Liz Halliday, United States, and Sam Hancock, Great Britain. The #33 Courage entry will consist of Sergey Zlobin, Russia, Bastien Briere, France, and Juan Barazi, Denmark.
"At the recent test day, the drivers were really quick out of the box," stated Field. "We have very good cars and should contend for the class win again."
Halliday and Fisken return to the Intersport team as they did at the 2005 12 Hours of Sebring. "It is great for the team to have such a strong driver lineup for this race," stated Field.
The Intersport team's other goal for the year is to win the American Le Mans P2 class championship with Clint and Jon Field behind the wheel. The team currently sits tied for 1st place in the championship. The next American Le Mans event is at Lime Rock Park on July 4th and it will be televised LIVE on the SPEED Channel.
