The Acura AXR-01 will appear in Fernandez Racing colors in 2008

When Acura decided to get into the American Le Mans Series this year, it hooked up with three teams. The Highcroft team used a chassis that started off as a French Courage unit that they then focused on developing into the AXR-01 with the help of Acura itself. The Fernandez team used a standard Lola chassis and focused on engine deveiopment instead. The Andretti-Green team, meanwhile, used the best components from the other two teams. After a year of running in the ALMS with good results, the Fernandez crew looks set to make the switch over to the Acura AXR-01 chassis for 2008. Apparently making a switch at this point won't require sacrifices by the engine development program, which the Fernandez team figures is a priority considering its original Lola car did just fine in its first year.
