Barrie, Ontario's Kyle Marcelli, the youngest driver in the American Le Mans Series, is gearing up for this weekend's race at Lime Rock Park located in Lakeville, Connecticut. The event marks the start of the second half in the 2010 ALMS Championship. Marcelli is anxiously awaiting his first taste of victory in 2010 as he competes in the competitive LMPC class.
After narrowly missing out on a class victory weeks ago in Monterey, California at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Marcelli knows what it takes. He will be piloting the #89 LMPC entry alongside Brian Wong , the ’09 Porsche GT3 Cup standout. The duo worked together during the last round in Salt Lake City, Utah, where after showing a competitive pace all weekend, were forced to retire early in the race due to a mechanical failure.
“I’m very excited for this weekend's events, I know we have the team and equipment to win the race and at the end of the day, that’s our goal. For this race it will be significant to keep your nose clean and out of trouble, good traffic management and overall a race quick pace will be key,” Marcelli said.
The race will air live on SPEED at 2:00 p.m. (ET) on Saturday, July 24th. For more information visit: www.kylemarcelliracing.com and www.americanlemans.com
