Elkhart 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 right.


We 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."
