Johnny Herbert and JJ Lehto
finished second in the recent Trois Rivières race in Quebec but will
be looking to go one better for the privateer Audi team that has its
sights firmly set on championship success.
Champion Racing has recorded
a win, two seconds and a third in the four ALMS races staged so far
this year. Lehto lies third in the Driver’s standings with Herbert
fourth while Team ADT Champion Racing are second in the Team’s title
Mosport, a natural-terrain
road racing circuit with a long and storied history, has been a part
of the ALMS since its formation in 1999. The 2.459-mile track has
produced some very competitive racing, including the closest margin of
victory in the series.
The Audi R8 of Rinaldo
Capello/Allan McNish won by just 0.148-secs from Lehto/Jorg Muller in
2000 while the R8 has won the corresponding Mosport race for the past
two years. Champion Racing recorded a sixth place courtesy of
McNish/Ralf Kelleners (Porsche 911 GT1) in ’99 and a second place last
year with its Audi R8 (Herbert/Stefan Johansson).
