Champion Racing  - 2003 ALMS Sears Point Qualifying


Team ADT Champion Racing Audi R8  starts from fourth place on the 37-car grid

26 July - JJ Lehto set a time of 1min 24.562secs, an average speed of 107.708mph, around the 2.53-mile, 12-turn Infineon Raceway [Sears Point] in Sonoma, CA.  The Florida-based team is bidding to score a second consecutive victory after achieving a maiden ALMS win in the previous race at Road Atlanta last month.

Johnny Herbert:
I wasnt expecting Sears to be a breeze despite winning the last race and that has been the case so far.  We endured a frustrating time in qualifying but Im certain come the race, with a few overnight changes to the car, well be on the pace and can add to the Champion teams first and second place finishes in the opening two ALMS races.  This is the venue of my ALMS debut and Ive finished fourth [2001] and second [last year] here.


JJ Lehto:

I was naturally disappointed to be only fourth quickest in qualifying but although the race is going to be extremely tough, I believe we can achieve another top result.  I slightly bettered my time in the closing stages of qualifying but unfortunately it did not gain us a better position.  I scored an LMP900 victory here in 1999 and Ill be pushing hard for another we must consistently score big points for the championship.
