ISRINGHAUSEN BODYMOTION PARTNERSHIP AT INDY

Bodymotion Racing are pleased to announce a partnership with Isringhausen Imports and ex-Indycar racer Dan Clarke for the Continental Tire Sportscar Challenge race here at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course on Friday 25th July 2014.

Bodymotion Racing is an experienced professional outfit, led by Mike Bavaro, with successes in Porsches from Grand-Am racing to Porsche Club America and Club racing. Their regular 2014 driver and Sportscar legend, Shane Lewis, will partner Clarke for this Friday's 2hr40min race.

Isringhausen Imports is a successful Porsche dealership from Springfield IL with its own racing achievements in Porsche Caymans in recent years with Driver and Team Championships.

"Speedy" Dan Clarke harks from Great Britain and relocated to Indianapolis, after numerous wins in open-wheel racing in the UK and Europe, to pursue a career in the Champ Car Indycar series. After two full seasons, and a full stint in the Firestone Indy Lights series, his focus changed to Sportscars where the partnership and success with Isringhausen Motorsports' Porsche Cayman racing began.

Geoff Isringhausen had this to say: "Isringhausen Imports is excited about partnering with Bodymotion for the Continental Tire race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway this weekend. Bodymotion knows how to build and prepare an excellent race car and combined with our outstanding driver lineup of Dan and Shane Lewis in the Porsche 911 we are very confident of a strong finishing position."

Dan wanted to share his gratitutde and excitement for the weekend: "This opportunity couldnt come at a better time for me. I've wanted to do the Indy Sportscar event for some time and I couldn't be more excited about this upcoming race. I know the Bodymotion guys from the Porsche Cayman racing success I had with the Isringhausen Motorsports team, and I'm super grateful from the support of Geoff and Mike for this. I also want to thank everybody else who has helped me to be part of this deal and get back in a professional series. And this car! I can't wait to get behind the wheel and work with Shane Lewis, who has a ton of experience in this format, and see what we can do together this week on track."

Other notable sponsors of the car are Geartie - Reusable Rubber Ties and PDInstore - Where game-changing logistical speed & agility reigns.

The No.12 Bodymotion Isringhausen GS Porsche began life as a 2012 911 GTS road car and was transformed into the Continental Tire Sportscar Challenge GS class race car by Bodymotion Racing. With power in excess of 400hp and a top speed of over 180mph, the team is looking forward to this Friday's event.
