Lake, Wisconsin (August 21, 2004) -
JJ Lehto and Marco Werner,
who have won four of the six ALMS races this season, will start
third in the Champion Racing Audi R8. The two Dyson Racing Lolas
will start the race from the front row.
"Well, the car is obviously not working the way we want it to," said
Lehto, who teamed with Johnny Herbert to win last year's ALMS event at Road America for Champion. "We have
been trying a lot of things and still can't seem to get it just
struggled at Mosport and we are struggling here. We'll just have to
strip the car and start again from a clean sheet (Sunday). That's
all. That's racing."
"We are a little too slow this weekend and we're not sure why," said
Werner. "The car has a little bit of understeer right now as well as
a bounce where you touch the ground. That is a bit of a problem on
the braking points as you are locking wheels."
