Starworks adds Joey Hand for VIR
Joey Hand will co-drive the No. 7 Flex-Box Starworks Motorsport Dinan-BMW Riley Daytona Prototype with Bill Lester in this Saturday's Bosch Engineering 250, round 4 of the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series Hand was tapped to fill in at the last minute when Lester's regular teammate, Kasper Andersen, was not able to catch a flight as a result of airline dislocation owing to the Eyjafjallajokull Volcano in Iceland
A multiple Rolex Series GT class winner, Hand's last experience in a Daytona Prototype was in 2008, when he co-drove with Bill Auberlen. His current regular gig is in the American Le Mans Series, where he drives a BMW M3 for Rahal Letterman Racing. Hand also races a BMW M6 from time to time in the Rolex Series with teammate Auberlen in the GT category, and drives an M3 in the Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Grand Sport class with Turner Motorsport.
