LAW, DONOHUE AND BRUMOS PORSCHE HEAD SOUTH OF THE BORDER FOR MEXICO CITY ROLEX SPORTS CAR SERIES EVENT


Phoenix, Arizona –— The Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, a 2.5-mile road course outside Mexico City, Mexico is the site of the next endurance event on the 2006 Rolex Sports Car Series schedule, and Darren Law, David Donohue and the Brumos Porsche squad are finishing off preparations for the quickly approaching March 2-4 weekend.  After a strong showing at the Rolex 24 at Daytona earlier this month, the Brumos squad is cautiously optimistic for what could be a turnaround season for the legendary racing team.

FANtastic Mexico City Race
This year's Mexico City race marks the second time the Rolex Sports Car Series has visited the area, and following the simply astounding fan turnout and close race action of the 2005 event, 2006 promises to be that much stronger.  A total of 25 Daytona Prototypes and 12 GT cars are currently entered for the 2 hour 45 minute race.

Preparing
Phoenix, Arizona resident and long time endurance driver Law has been preparing for the Mexico City race since flying home from Daytona, with daily runs to ensure he is in peak physical condition.  Law, like many of his Brumos squad teammates, was encouraged with the strong performance of the #58 Red Bull Porsche Powered Fabcar at the Daytona race, and is hopeful that similar performances will be in the cards for the remainder of the season.

Quotes –— Darren Law
“"We definitely had a good run at Daytona. It's encouraging for sure, but we also know that there are a bunch of solid teams that will be very tough competition.  Mexico City was a good race last year, and I couldn't believe how many fans there were.  We're all looking forward to this year's race, and hopefully David (Donohue) and I can give the Brumos guys a little to cheer about."

Scheduling
The Rolex Sports Car Series 250 is scheduled to take the green flag at 3:15 pm EST on Saturday March, 4th.  The race will be aired with same day coverage on SPEED as a tape delayed event at 8:00 pm EST.  For more comprehensive scheduling information on the upcoming Grand American Mexico City race, be sure to log onto www.grand-am.com.  Check out Darren's updated website at www.darrenlaw.com, and check out what the spectacular new livery on the Brumos Porsche Fabcar looks like at www.brumosracing.com.
