Former F500 Drive Andy Lally To Run 24 Hours of LeMans

Miscellaneous Andy Lally Joins Miracle Motorsports for Le Mans

Road racer Andy Lally will join Miracle Motorsports's driving lineup for the upcoming 2005 24 Hours of Le Mans on June 18. He will join teammates John Macaluso and Ian James in the squad's Courage C65 AER turbo LMP2 car for the team's - and Lally's - first-ever trip to the 8.48-mile La Sarthe circuit.

"I'm thrilled," Lally said. "I had a chance to test the car at Road Atlanta as well as Sebring in the last month, and it is such a pleasure [to drive] and so fun."

Lally has been an ALMS and Grand-Am regular for many years, with a 2001 24 Hours of Daytona win in the SRPII class as his career highlight, alongside that class's overall title that same year.

"It's going to be a tough race," Lally said. "My class [LMP2] is the most competitive than it has ever been." There are 14 other LMP2 entries at Le Mans this year.

"We'll treat it like any other endurance race," he added. "There is a ton of preparation needed to be able to do this race right and there is a lot of behind-the-scenes work by the crew that is so important."

Miracle Motorsports won its class at the 12 Hours of Sebring in 2004 and 2005. Lally, Macaluso and James will test at Le Mans this Sunday, June 5.
