29/05/2008 - RISI Competizione Racing For Results at Le Mans

Nouveau document

Eric van de Poele: “I had a good experience with this Ferrari (430GT) at Sebring as we finished on the podium, and I'm very happy to be back at Le Mans. My last time was in 2002 and every year I've missed the race so I'm really looking forward to being back. I have very good memories there with Giuseppe and his Risi team so to do it again with my Grand Am team mates this year, Nic and Tracy, plus Risi is a bonus. The package looks very good. It is always very hard at these events, but it's a long race and we can always hope to make a podium.”

The three Krohn Racing drivers entered in car 83 contribute a well-proven mix of experience, race craft and enthusiasm. Tracy W Krohn, of Houston, Texas, is team owner/driver of the two-car Krohn Racing Daytona Prototype team in the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series, and he will be taking his third Le Mans start, having made his debut at La Sarthe in 2006. He races with his podium team mate of 2007 (Le Mans) and 2008 (Sebring), Nic Jönsson, and Belgian Eric van de Poele – a face very familiar at La Sarthe and a previous overall winner in 1998 in the Doyle-Risi Racing Ferrari 333 SP.
