Photo by John Thawley Homestead, FL (22 March 2007)- Alex Tagliani and Tom Nastasi will team up once again this weekend to co-drive the USG Sheetrock/Guardian Insulation Ford Mustang Cobra GT in Saturday's Linder Industrial Grand Prix.
The new GT-Class entry has proven quick thus far in 2007, posting the fastest lap of the weekend in the Rolex 24 season opener, and then setting the fastest lap of the race in Mexico City earlier this month.
The Rolex Series GT Class had a record number of entries for the Mexico City race, and boasts even more entrants for the Homestead round with twenty-six cars. There will also be twenty Daytona Prototypes sharing the 2.3-mile infield road course in South Florida on Saturday afternoon.
"I really like this track," said Nastasi, who won the Miami 250 at Homestead driving with Kevin Buckler in 2004. "We've been improving things on the car little by little and keep learning more every race. It is a new car, but things are progressing well and we'd like to get a good result here this weekend."
