LG Motorsports ProLong Tube Header Corvettes In Full Force For Mid-Ohio SPEED World Challenge GT

Lexington, Ohio -- Lou Gigliotti, in the #28 ProLong Tube Headers Corvette, dominated the early laps in round three of the SCCA Pro Racing SPEED World Challenge GT Series at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. He finished fourth. This week, Lou and the LG Motorsports crew head to Mid-Ohio for the SCCA Pro Racing SPEED World Challenge GT race. The green flag falls Saturday at 6:05PM and will air Saturday, May 27 on SPEED at 9PM EST.

"The SCCA put some adjustments on the Porsche," said Gigliotti, who currently sits fourth in the points standings, "but we're still going to have our hands full holding off the Vipers. Our guys have done a great job getting the ProLong Tube Header Corvettes ready for this race, and I think with the predicted rain, we'll make the best of a tough situation."

"I don't like the rain but I seem to have great results in the rain," continued Lou. "And, on the bright side, LG Motorsports is a professional team and we'll find a way to make diamonds out of coal."

Claudio Burtin, driving the #26 Pabst Blue Ribbon Corvette C6, is also optimistic about the weekend.

"I consider Mid-Ohio a very technical track where handling is a premium," said Burtin. The #26 Pabst Blue Ribbon Corvette C-6 has just been up-dated to the newer specs and I'm hoping for a better result than what I've shown thus far."

Doug Peterson will be back in the #87 3 Dimensional Services Corvette after sitting out the Long Beach Race. Peterson will be serving double duty this weekend also participating in the Star Mazda Series in which he is a former champion.

The LG Motorsports' three-car effort and the SCCA Pro Racing SPEED World Challenge Series are at Mid-Ohio as part of American Le Mans Series weekend. The event will air on SPEED Channel Saturday, May 27 on SPEED at 9PM EST.
