Scott Tucker Prepares for Classic Endurance Race
PR Newswire
MADISON, Wis., Feb. 18, 2012








MADISON, Wis., Feb. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With the 60th Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida less than a month away, Scott Tucker and Level 5 Motorsports are busy preparing to defend their 2011 American Le Mans Series LMP2 Championship.  In its first test session of the year, the team posted class-leading speeds and looked in championship form.

"We've been real fortunate as the test went as planned," said Tucker. "The new HPD ARX-03b performed just as we thought it would. Having driven both cars during the two days, I found it to be a big improvement over the old car. Ending the day 1-2 was very pleasing and gives us plenty of momentum heading into additional test sessions and the race itself next month."

Tucker, from Leawood, Kansas, was joined by 2011 teammates Christophe Bouchut and Luis Diaz for the test session.  The team logged more than 1,300 miles during the test as they prepared for one of the most grueling endurance races in the world.  

"The 12 Hours of Sebring is a tough race," Tucker said.  "This year, we will see another world-class collection of competitors and it will be a great event.  We feel we are on the right track at this point.   We are looking forward to the race."

Level 5 will return to Sebring for further testing on Feb. 27-29, ahead of the 60th annual Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh from Florida, where Tucker will be seeking his third straight victory in America's oldest endurance race. The American Le Mans Series season-opener, set for a 10:30 a.m. ET start on March 17, will also serve as the first race for the new FIA World Endurance Championship. It will be broadcast March 18 on ABC and shown live on ESPN3 or ALMS.com.
