Eric

Tracy W. Krohn, Team Owner/Driver of the No. 75 Krohn Racing Ford Lola:“It was really a pretty good race. I had a little bit of an incident early in the race at Turn 1. I don't' know who it was but they nearly knocked me into the tire barrier going into Turn 2. I managed to get the car straight again and kept my eyes forward and just kept running. Going into Turn 1 after the first yellow, I had a little kickback on the brakes and flat spotted a tire, inside left. It vibrated like hell for 20 laps. It was unbelievable!The car was pretty solid. It came off the corners pretty good and held together well. The guys did a good job on the one yellow flag pit stop and we picked up a position there. Basically the car was solid all day. Eric did a really good job keeping the car up on the lead lap and running with some of the top guys. Overall it was a pretty good day and it was nice to get back in the car again.”

Eric van de Poele, Driver, No. 75 Krohn Racing Ford Lola:“I think we had very good strategy. Tracy drove really, really well. He was only one and a half or two seconds off the pace. Really fantastic! When I jumped in the car it was very good. I went to pass the No. 6 car, I think, and after that there was a red Porsche who closed the door in the last moment and hit me on the front right. After that incident my car was a little bit off on the geometry on the front so I had to fight for the entire race to try to keep the pace and to keep my position. I ended up losing two positions at the end when I went from 7th to 9th. But it was a good fight. The car was very reliable, very well prepared and the crew was good together, especially for not all having worked together before. It was a good race.”
