Stevenson Motorsports Gets Comfortable

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Rolex Series GT runner-up Andrew Davis said this week's Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series presented by Crown Royal Cask No. 16 test at Daytona International Speedway has given his Stevenson Motorsports Pontiac GXP.R team a good opportunity to get accustomed and comfortable with several things, including the new Pirelli P Zero tires.

Davis returns for his second season with the team, co-driving with Scotsman Robin Liddell. The pair finished nine points behind Kelly Collins and Paul Edwards in the 2008 GT point standings.

"Basically, we're trying to one, get comfortable on the new Pirelli tire, and also run through a lot of things that we want to improve on for next year, so we can make a good run at the championship," Davis said.

"Right now, we're making good progress, and everybody's working really hard to make the changes. That's what testing is about. It's nice to be down here."

Running in different conditions - under sunny skies Tuesday and in the rain Wednesday - was favorable by Davis, who said in his eight previous Rolex 24 starts, the weather has never stayed the same throughout the entire 24 hours.
