Brumos to run single car in 2010

Brumos Racing confirms Grand-Am return, but with just a single car for the 2010 Rolex Series season
Brumos Racing has confirmed that it will return to the Grand-Am Rolex Series season again in 2010, although the current economic climate will see the team downsize to a single-car entry.

The team, which took victory in the final round of the 2009 season at Homestead, will field only the #59 Porsche Riley next year with Darren Law and David Donohue sharing driving duties.

“In response to the current economic climate, we have chosen to focus on one car for 2010, and we are very pleased to have David Donohue and Darren Law as our full-time #59 car drivers,” team owner Dan Davis said. “At the same time, we cannot overlook the past contributions of the other valued members of the Brumos driving team.

“We regret that J.C. France will not be driving with us this season, and we support him as he works to return to the series. Joao Barbosa is one of the finest drivers in racing and we are pleased that he will be returning full-time to Grand-Am DP competition in 2010, joined by another Brumos veteran, Terry Borcheller. Details on this new team are still being finalised and will be announced in the near future. We are certainly looking forward to competing in 2010 and hope to kick off the season as repeat winners of the Rolex 24 at Daytona.”

As part of the Rolex 24 challenge, veteran Hurley Haywood will join Donohue and Law for what will be his final bid at victory in the round the clock race.

“I have spent the better part of my 40 plus year racing career behind the wheel of a Brumos #59 car, so it is only fitting that I drive our #59 Porsche Riley in what will be my last shot for my sixth career Rolex 24 win,” he said. “Darren and David have proven their value to our team over the years, so you could say I am 'stacking the deck' in joining them to defend our Rolex 24 Championship.

“With their level of skill and determination, we expect to win many races this season, and I hope the Rolex 24 will be the first of many.”
