19/09/2008 - Krohn Racing Preview for the Miller Motorsports Park Grand-Am Finale

Lola Pontiac 08

The Grand-Am finale driver line-up is expected to feature Krohn Racing team owner/driver Tracy W. Krohn paired with veteran sports car driver Eric van de Poele in the No. 75 Krohn Racing Pontiac Lola. Due to extensive hurricane damage in the Houston area and the Gulf, Boris Said has been enlisted as a standby driver for Tracy Krohn. Krohn, a Houston native, also operates a major business based in Houston. Said is a former Krohn Racing winner who paired with Jörg Bergmeister in 2006 to win the Six Hours of the Glen. He has also driven with Krohn Racing at Miller Motorsports Park, Daytona and Sonoma between 2006 and 2007. The No. 76 Krohn Racing Pontiac Lola features drivers Nic Jönsson and Ricardo Zonta.

Eric van de Poele, driver, No. 75 Krohn Racing Pontiac Lola:

This will be your first time racing at Miller Motorsports Park. What have you heard about it or seen? “It looks like a very difficult track to learn. So, the concentration during the first free practice will be learning the track and determining the competitiveness of my driving. I like long tracks in general. I am also looking forward to add this one on my list.”

You have nearly completed your first full year with Krohn Racing in the Grand-Am Series. How has it been for you? What have you enjoyed most? “Of course, I had to learn the Grand-Am championship and the new car. So if the results are a little bit disappointing, I am very happy to see that we have progressed a lot during the year. I am hoping that the team will collect the fruits of this hard work for 2009. Next to this, I am very lucky to have been part of a fantastic team, both technically and so friendly in general. Of course the results are very important, but I give a priority to the atmosphere and the capability of the team you are working for. I have to say that the Krohn Racing team is an example and I am just sad that we'll reach already the end of the season. So, I cannot wait to be at Miller with my second family!”
