Daytona Beach, FL - June 1st 2010, Grand-American Road Racing Series Continental Tire Sportscar Challenge had its fifth round of the championship this past weekend in Lakeville, CT in Lime Rock Park.

The fifth round of the series was a 2.5 hour Grand Sport only race. James Gué and teammate Bret Seafuse had just come off a season worst finish in VIR (14th place). The team continued to run the brand new 2010 Boss 302R Mustang.

In qualifying Bret posted the 3rd quickest time in qualifying out of 31 GS cars, and Seafuse ran a strong 3rd place before reporting a brake problem just minutes prior to handing the car over to Gué. Once Gué returned to the race he restarted in 3rd place but slipped back to 7th as the brake issue contiuned to worsen. Finally with 20 minutes remaining in the race Gué reported that the brakes had completely failed and the team was forced to retire the car resulting in a 23rd place finish. It was ultimately a leaking brake line that caused the retirement.

Gué commented: "It was a very frustrating race, Bret did such a good job in qualifying and in the first part of the race. This was one of the better cars we have had and to end up with the first DNF for the JBS team in 4 seasons was really disappointing for all the crew. Hopefully we can rebound next week at the team's home track in Watkins Glen, NY."

Fifth-Place Finish for Gué and Keen in No. 41 Team Seattle/Global Diving/
Dempsey Racing Mazda RX-8 GT at VIR

DANVILLE, Va. (April 24, 2010) – The new No. 41 Team Seattle/Global Diving/Dempsey Racing Mazda RX-8 GT, with drivers James Gué and Leh Keen, finished a solid fifth in Saturday’s Bosch Engineering 250 at Virginia International Raceway (VIR) where their teammates Patrick Dempsey and Joe Foster overcame more than one issue to finish 12th in the No. 40 Dempsey Racing Mazda RX-8 GT.

“It was a good race with another top five and we finished ahead of three of the teams that were ahead of us in points,” said Gué, who started the race in the No. 41. “All in all, we did what we needed to do. It was a pretty quiet and low key sort of first hour or so but it certainly got a little exciting with some pushing and shoving at the end, but we brought it home for Team Seattle and Global Diving.”

Keen took over from Gué at the 45-minute mark and drove the final two hours of the race. His only major issue came during the No. 41’s final pit stop about an hour from the finish.

“The guys did a really good pit stop but then I just came out and didn’t give it quite enough wheel spin and stalled it out,” said Keen, who fell to eighth place after the miscue. “I got passed by three cars just like that before refiring it. There was a lot of hard racing going on, a lot of wheel-to-wheel and a little bit of bumping, but we managed to somehow get the positions back by the end of the race.”

Next up for Dempsey Racing is a Memorial Day Monday race at Lime Rock Park where the GT class will be joined by the Daytona Prototype competitors for the first time on the 1.50-mile configuration of the classic Connecticut road course. The race can be seen live on SPEED at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT on Memorial Day Monday, May 31.

Daytona Beach, FL - April 12th, Grand-American Road Racing Series Continental Tire Sportscar Challenge had its third round of the championship this past weekend in Leeds, Alabama at the Barber Motorsports Park.

The third round of the series was a 2.5 hour combined Grand Sport and Sport Touring race. James Gué and teammate Bret Seafuse had just come off a disappointing 11th place finish in Homestead, and looked to rebound at the track they won at last year. The team continued to run the brand new 2010 Boss 302R Mustang.

In qualifying Bret posted the 3rd quickest time in qualifying out of 30 GS cars. In the race Seafuse ran a strong 4th place. At the one hour mark Seafuse pitted handing the car over to Gué. Once the race restarted Gué tried to maintain his position in the top 10, while struggling with the car's setup. While the second half of the race was run primarily under yellow due to a number of accidents. After dropping back as far as 12th, the JBS Motorsports team managed to salvage a 7th place finish in the end with the race ending under yellow.

Gué commented: "It was very frustrating weekend, not only is Barber a hard place to setup for we also had the IRL cars here this weekend which changed to condition of the track with all the rubber they put down. We are still struggling to get a handle on the new BOSS 302R Mustang, we just missed the setup and Bret and I really struggled in the race. All things considered I'm really happy with the all the hard work the team has put in; we had great pitstops and we did everything right strategy wise."
