GB Autosport Ready To Take On Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca

GB Autosport Ready To Take On Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca

Although forced to settle for a qualification result far behind where they were expecting to start following a fraught 15-minute qualifying session, GB Autosport is fully prepared to pilot their No. 81 Tully’s Coffee Porsche 911 GTD America up the pack in tomorrow’s 2-hour race. Damien Faulkner and Bob Faieta will begin the Grand Prix of Monterey Powered by Mazda from the sixth row of the starting grid.

The team entered the weekend with high spirits, excited to take on the first sprint race of the season. In the two practice sessions ahead of qualifying, their spirits and ambitions continued to improve as they showed strong pace, never falling out of the top-10 in either session and consistently posting fast lap times below the 1:27 mark.

A red flag during qualifying coupled with troublesome traffic kept Faulkner from truly getting all that he could out of the Tully’s machine. Deepening the frustration was the fact that it was a familiar foe causing the disruption. While the qualifying effort didn’t reflect what the team is capable of, the group knows that the points are paid for race results and not the starting grid.

“The same No. 51 Ferrari that took us out a Daytona was the same one that ruined our fastest lap of qualifying today,” said a disappointed Cole Scrogham, Team Manager, after the qualifying session. “We did get to go back out (after the caution period for a Ferrari off track in the Corkscrew) but then we got hung up by another car that slowed us down in the last corner, so we just couldn’t get any clear laps in the full 15-minute session. Tomorrow will take care of itself, races usually work themselves out, but I’m disappointed right now. I thought we definitely had one of the top cars, if not the top Porsche but we just couldn’t put it together. But maybe that will light a fire under the drivers for tomorrow. I know our car is good, so we will see.”

The green flag will fly for the fourth round of the IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar championship tomorrow at 10:15 AM (PST). The race will be aired LIVE on FOX Sports 1 starting at 10:00 AM (PST).
