Magnus Racing to debut Porsche Cayman at Homestead

March 1, 2010 (Salt Lake City, Utah) – The team in green has now grown to two cars. At the Grand Prix of Miami, Magnus Racing will expand into the GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge when it debuts its 2009 Porsche Cayman in the GS category.

The expansion of the team into a Cayman – and into the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge – has been a part of the Magnus Racing plan from the beginning. As an undeveloped platform in the series, the Cayman has a tremendous amount of potential against the Mustangs, Camaros, BMW M3’s and Porsche 997’s that currently run at the front of the series.

While the team was focused on its GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series presented by Crown Royal Cask No.16  program for the season-opening event at Daytona International Speedway, the decision was made to delay the introduction of the Cayman until after the Rolex 24. Under development for several months, Magnus Racing’s Porsche Cayman has been built and developed at Magnus Racing’s home base in Salt Lake City, Utah and shaken down by Potter at Miller Motorsports Park.

In order to score points for the championship before the Cayman made its debut, Potter competed in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race in Daytona, renting a Porsche 997 for the race. He ran as high as ninth before a late stop for fuel put him down in 19th. Potter scored a win in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge in 2009 at Watkins Glen.

Potter will be joined by open-wheel and sportscar veteran Bryan Sellers at the Grand Prix of Miami. Sellers, having been a front-runner for a number of Continental Challenge teams, looks to add both his talent and experience in developing this brand new car.

“I’m really looking forward to joining the team at this weekend’s Grand Prix of Miami,” said Sellers. “John and I have crossed paths at previous teams in the past, but we’ve never actually driven the same car together, so it should be a lot of fun. The Porsche Cayman could be a really competitive car, so we’ll just have to see how it goes.”

In addition to the debut of the team’s Cayman in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, the team will return with its No.44 Porsche GT3 Cup in the Rolex Sports Car Series with drivers Potter and Craig Stanton. The team is happy to be back in competition after a challenging Rolex 24 at Daytona in which Magnus Racing finished fifth in their series debut.
