Rocketsports to debut Jag at Petit LeMans

RSR is scheduled to debut the Jaguar XKR GT2, the newest entry in the American Le Mans Series, at the famed Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta, September 24 – 26.

In preparation for a full championship season effort in 2010, the team plans to enter the last two events on the 2009 ALMS schedule using the track time for testing and development. The car is undergoing extensive system tests at RSR's East Lansing, Michigan facility and is being prepared for a performance evaluation and shakedown prior to Road Atlanta.

The team will be hosting a press conference on Thursday, September 24 at Road Atlanta to officially unveil the car, drivers for 2009, and tire partners. Complete details on the event to follow.

Late September sees the annual return of the American Le Mans Series where the idea started – Petit Le Mans powered by MAZDA6 at Road Atlanta. The 1,000-mile, 10-hour spectacle brings together the world's top sports car teams with automatic berths to the 24 Hours of Le Mans on the line.
