Bell Motorsports will return to the American Le Mans Series at Elkhart Lake as the team seeks to overcome the disappointment of its retirement from the Lime Rock race last month.

The Aston Martin team has endured a tough season to date in the GT1 class with its DBR9 with the team being forced to rebuild the entire car following a hefty shunt at St Petersburg back in April.

The team then returned to competition at Lime Rock only for the car to be involved in an accident once again after contact with one of the LMP1 Audis forced the car to retire on the 61st lap of the race.

Although the actual tub of the car escaped undamaged, all four corners received body damage, the front framerails were bent and two radiators blew. The inner bumper and the framerails were the last replacement parts to come in from supplier Prodrive.

Terry Borcheller and Chapman Ducote will share driving duties in the race as the team attempts to take the fight to the two factory Corvettes.
