Bill Sweedler and Townsend Bell finished a respectable seventh on Saturday at the ALMS race at Elkhart Lake’s Road America.
American Le Mans Road America-2The four-mile, 14 turn course requires a strong all-round package to be competitive and, after diligently working on areas of high-speed downforce, the Lotus AJR pair had exactly that from their black and gold Evora GT.

Bill Sweedler: “We met our goal here this weekend. That was to come here and keep improving. Greg Fordahl, our engineer, and the team made great improvements on the aero. It showed in the performance.”

Townsend Bell: "The little car that can is showing some spark. Our science experiment took another step forward today. We had a better balanced car this weekend and that allowed us to keep within shouting distance of the GT field.  We will continue to keep our noses in the data and our hands working to move this project forward.”
