Earlier this week the intrepid folks at TrackSide Online noted earlier this sentence at the end of a RLR Press Release.

"In 2007 Rahal Letterman Racing will campaign two cars in the Indy Racing League's IndyCar Series and is exploring opportunities in other racing disciplines."
At the time TSO speculated this could mean Bobby was looking to front a Champ Car team, perhaps because he is doing everything he can to get his son Graham into the series. I would like to point out that Bobby said earlier this year he had no intention of owning a team that featured Graham as a driver, but I suppose people can change their minds.

Well, maybe not. Backstretch Motorsports (among others) reports that RLR will indeed be exploring other racing disciplines, except it is the GT2 category of the American LeMans Series. The team will use a new Porsche 911 GT3 RSR with an as yet undetermined driver.

Anyone need a ride? Ladies and Gentlemen, start your resumes.
