Peter Law and Frank Howard are two men with a background in business - and in the business of racing - who have joined forces to create Team HLM (Howard & Law Motorsports). In 2006, they plan to introduce a pair of brand new Infiniti G35 coupes into the Grand American Rolex Sportscar Series GT class, beginning with the Homestead race. The cars are currently under construction by Max Crawford's team of car building craftsmen working out of his North Carolina based Crawford Composites / Crawford Race Cars complex. The cars will be powered by 4.5 Liter Infiniti V-8 engines prepared by Menards Engineering.
Peter Law is an accomplished racer and team owner who hails from Australia, just a strong boomerang toss away from Max Crawford's native New Zealand. The two 'down-under' racing veterans enjoy a mutual appreciation for their similar heritage and history, and for what they have accomplished in Motorsports.
Law is also the proud father of Darren Law, the professional racer who co-pedals a Brumos Racing Porsche-Fabcar with David Donohue in the Daytona Prototype class in the Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series. Just as son Darren is looking to make a new start with a new Porsche powerplant and improved Fabcar chassis for 2006, so too is dad Peter looking to start anew with a new car and engine combination in the GT class.
We talked with Peter Law about this new beginning for a man who has been in racing since the 1960's. His experiences go all the way back to the glory days of the Canadian-American Challenge Cup (Can-Am) and time spent wrenching for Roger Penske and Mark Donohue. And in case you didn't know, Mark Donohue is David Donohue's father.
