Dalziel Puts Truspeed Third On St Pete Grid With Privacy Star/Entrust Porsche

TruSpeed Motorsports plans on taking the fight to the big guys and got a good start to that effort in qualifying for the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on Friday.

The California-based team tabbed Ryan Dalziel to drive the No. 46 Privacy Star/Entrust Porsche as TruSpeed targets a strong start to the 2013 Pirelli World Challenge campaign, which will see the opening two rounds held as part of the big IndyCar Grand Prix event.

Despite the campaign coming together late in the game, the hard-working team made a strong first impression for the 2013 season as Dalziel posted a fast lap time of 1:14.737-seconds around the 1.8-mile St. Petersburg temporary street circuit to score third on the grid for Saturday’s race (5:00 PM ET Saturday--streamed live at http://www.world-challengetv.com/). The front row was locked out by the all wheel drive Volvos, with Dalziel securing a spot ahead of both factory Cadillac entries.

“We're happy,” said the Le Mans 24 winner Dalziel. “We knew the Volvos were going to be strong but we're encouraged that we're ahead of the Audi and the Cadillacs. We kind of got 50% of our goals accomplished. I think the Porsches are traditionally pretty good on tires, so the plan is to hope that the Volvos burn theirs off and we can stay with them for the race.”

Saturday’s season-opener will see a rolling start to open the season, with Sunday’s Race 2 format featuring the traditional standing start that the series is known for.

“This was a good qualifying session for the Entrust Privacy Star Porsche,” said Team Manager Tyler Tadevic. “To be honest, third place is probably as good as we could have hoped for. The Volvos, the Audis, the Cadillacs all spent the entire off season testing, and we found out that we were going to be here literally 12 days ago and spent one day testing at a track that has nothing to do with a road course. So for us to come out here and for Ryan to put the car on the second row, I think that's a good sign. Our car is traditionally really good on the long run. Those Volvos have a tendency to burn those tires off so with some good long green flag sessions, it could come to us. All in all really proud of the team, really proud of Ryan and hopefully it can end up in a good result tomorrow.”
