Performance Tech Qualifies Sixth On Busy Day At Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca

David Ostella qualified the Performance Tech Motorsports No. 38 ORECA FLM 09 machine in the sixth position at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for the Continental Tire Monterey Grand Prix Powered by Mazda on Sunday.

Ostella was given a short time to gain his footing, with the only practice sessions of the weekend taking place Saturday. But he still was happy with his pace during qualifying, turning a top lap of 1 minute, 20.836 seconds on the 11-turn, 2.238-mile circuit.

"Qualifying was pretty good," Ostella said. "I screwed up in the beginning. I flat-spotted the left front early on, driver error. I haven't been qualifying the car in a while, so there was a little bit of pressure there. No issues with car at all. Race car-wise, we have a great set up. The competition is fierce in the PC class with all the ex-F1 and IndyCar drivers. I'm more of a racer than a qualifier, so I think the race is where we're going to be strong."

Teammate Charlie Shears feels comfortable with the team's starting position and will fight alongside Ostella for a second Performance Tech PC podium finish at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca after finishing third last year.

There will be a unique format for the IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship event Sunday, with two races of two hours each. The PC and GT Daytona classes will share the track in the first race at 10:15 a.m. (PT), with the Prototype and GT Le Mans classes following in the second race at 2:45 p.m. FOX Sports 1 will televise both races live.
