21/08/2008 - Krohn Racing & Eric Preview for the Sonoma Grand-Am Race

Lola

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

Tell us about your racing history at Sonoma.

“I have very nice souvenirs about Sonoma. I raced there twice in WSC with Wayne Taylor and we always had good time there. Also I am very happy to go back again to California.”

What do you like about the Infineon Raceway circuit?

“I love this track, which is very interesting and very technical with a lot of changes of directions. I'll certainly need a few laps to get back some good momentum because last time I drove there was in 1998 with the Ferrari 333, only 10 years ago. I know that we will be competitive there. The work of the team is really paying off now and the layout of the track should play well for us. I will be not surprised if we reach our best result of the season.”

As the season is winding towards a close, what are your goals in these last three races?

“Those last three races are very important to me and, of course, to the team. It is time to think about 2009 and we definitely need a very good end to the Championship. We know now that the Lola-Pontiac can fight in front and we all want to prove that soon. We all love our job, and we are more motivated than ever. I really wish to celebrate something special very soon with the team. I cannot wait for that! It will be the best birthday present we could offer to Tracy.”

The Armed Forces 250 race from Sonoma, California will be televised tape delay on Sunday, August 24th, at 12:00 noon EDT on SPEED TV. For more information, please see www.grand-am.com and www.krohnracing.net.
