From Grand-Am:

Ian James

Ian James Joins Starworks Motorsport for Rolex 24 (Updated Thursday at 6:45 a.m.)

Ian James will be the fourth driver on the No. 7 Starworks Motorsport BMW Riley for the Rolex 24, joining Bill Lester, Mike Forest and Dion von Moltke.

Team principal Peter Baron also announced the web site, www.race4haiti.com, where online donations can be made with all funds going directly to Dunamis Medical Missions – a group of American doctors and nurses already active in Haiti since 1995, long before the devastating earthquakes. Driver Ryan Dalziel – who will join Starworks for the Miami Grand Prix after running for Action Express in the Rolex 24 – has a family connection. His wife Jessica’s parents are both on the Board of Directors of Dunamis Medical Missions.

Dalziel and all four Starworks Motorsport drivers will sport the cause on their helmets this weekend.
