UPDATE:
Got info back on what happened to the S60 R -
AT SPEED is awaiting parts that were supposed to have been delivered already.
The team hopes that promised parts will arrive in time for the Long Beach race.

AT SPEED Porsche:
The Porsche stalled on the start of the GT race, but Bob fought back to get up to 13th position at the finish. That was his first race in four years. Good job! http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Is Volvo still sponsoring them at all? Or are they putting the logos everywhere for free?

"Director of Motorsports and Team Manager Paul Amico is responsible for pulling this all together. "It is certainly a challenge, especially since most teams have a significant time jump on us. We're very lucky that Xtrac was able to juggle their workload to come back as our Volvo drivetrain partner. Unfortunately, Cosworth's commitments did not allow them the flexibility to rejoin us as our engine partner, but we were able to secure the services of Dinan Engineering to take over that program. With their extensive experience in engine development, we expect no perturbations in the engine area. Most importantly, we've still got the core crew that made our big run last year possible. Even so, the timeframe was still too short to have the Volvo ready for Sebring."

No time for the Volvo.

ATspeed owner Bob Miller had a great lower half qualifying 16th with a 1.22
against a 1.17 leader

Too bad for the Volvo though http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif

I sent some e-mails to various folks to find out why.
Hopefully someone who went to the race can fill us in soon.

Looks like Bob Miller came out OK with the AT SPEED 911.

It looked like a good race, especially Andy Pilgrim limping in with only
a couple laps to go

It airs at 3pm Polartek not 4pm as you posted. Pretty good race from what I can tell from the lap notes

Just have to hope the Volvo makes it in to Long Beach even if it gets in a lap or 2 before going black

ATspeed Porsche did fine and ran a full race. Started in the 8th row and had a good 6th lap and kept people from passing and you could see that on the coverage. No. 26 car tried but could not
