02/07/2009 - Back to Daytona

Ready in Car

The Krohn Racing team is headed to Daytona with both the No. 75 and No. 76 Proto-Auto Lolas for the Brumos Porsche 250 race. Please tell us about the plan for you and Tracy to be back with the second car and your thoughts about racing again in Grand-Am.

I cannot wait to be back in the DP with Tracy. Daytona 24 is too far and even if we drove at Sebring and Le Mans with good results, I'm still feeling glad to be a Grand-Am driver. It's good to have Tracy back driving with the team. At least we can follow the race now live on the racetrack, much better than in front of TV. We have missed the sister's car victory and the last podium as well of Nic and Ricardo. So, now it's time to celebrate something again.

How was it to be back up on the podium again at Le Mans?

Unbelievable! Not many drivers have gotten this privilege. Of course you have a big feeling of joy but the best is that you know how happy the team is, from the mechanics to the physios through the PR or management and all the people involved with the same goal .That's the best way to thank all the team for the huge efforts they did to push themselves to be the best. I was very proud to show from the podium the excellence of all of Risi's team.

Have you been keeping up with Grand-Am racing and the results back home in Belgium?

Oh yes! I was so happy to see the Proto-Auto Lola-Ford in a very competitive position after the hard work of last year. The team now can finally grasp the fruits. I could see also the series growing up dramatically and I can only be happy to be back in the show.

As the first half part of season has showed, the Lola Ford should be very competitive even if it is not the best type of track for our car. But anyway all of the team is looking forward to have two cars together on the track again. We may need some adjustments for Tracy and me but with motivation and happiness, it will be a real pleasure to race again with all our Grand-Am comrades. See you there!
