Fall-Line Motorsports scores another top-10 at Laguna Seca

Carter and Sellers drove together for the first time and this driver combination had all the makings for a successful race. However, it was not in the cards and though the drivers drove a good race, the day did not turn out quite as planned.

Carter drove a solid first stint and pitted under yellow at the thirty-minute mark but a problem in the pits as they switched drivers prevented the crew from changing tires. Then, to add to the misfortune, they received a penalty for speeding in the pits and on the 2nd stop they received another penalty for making contact with a tire upon exiting the pits. But, the improvement in speed is obvious and the #46 scored the 3rd fastest lap in the GT race.

Over the past two months Fall-Line Motorsports and Audi Sport customer racing have worked in unison to develop the car. For yesterday's race GRAND-AM allowed the team to install a rear diffuser, which added a little more downforce and stability to the car's rear.

Michael Harvey, Team Manager: "Today was a tough day. We had a fast car, but as a collective team made some fundamental errors that didn't allow us to capitalize on our speed.

I am proud of these guys and our relationship with Audi Sport customer racing for all their work that has allowed us to finish every racing lap. The Audi R8 GRAND-AM is coming alive and the more we get to know her the better the relationship becomes as we know look forward to Lime Rock."

The final round of the GRAND-AM Rolex Series is September 26-28 at Lime Rock Park.
