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.
