PokerStars and Aston Martin go back to the track

After recording a double podium finish in the opening round at Sebring in March, Aston Martin Racing will be returning to the United States to contest the second and third rounds of the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) at Houston and Mid-Ohio.

Starting at the Lone Star Grand Prix in Houston on Friday 12th May - the inaugural running of the street race in the ALMS calendar - Aston Martin Racing will field two DBR9s. The Lone Star Grand Prix will take place on a 9-turn, 1.7-mile temporary street circuit at Reliant Park and the race will see the two Aston Martin Racing DBR9s facing challenging hairpin turns and fast straights.

The team's two DBR9s will be numbered 007 and 009. In car 007 (red highlights) Tomas Enge (Czech Republic) and Darren Turner (UK) will take the wheel with Pedro Lamy (Portugal) and Stephane Sarrazin (France) in car 009 (yellow highlights).

The Lone Star Grand Prix is scheduled to start at 8 pm CDT on May 12 in Houston. Qualifying is set for 6:15 pm CDT on May 11.

The PokerStars blog will be live on the scene in Houston there to chronicle the action.
