Sebastian Saavedra – Driver

“I’m ready to get back to the track after a long but welcomed rest. These last few weeks we’ve been busy getting ready in the simulator and preparing for Road America, which will be a new track for me. It will be good to continue working on our development and I’m looking forward to a strong weekend.”

Gustavo Yacaman – Driver

“I’m really looking forward to this weekend. Road America is one of the top tracks in North America. The team did pretty well here last year, so hopefully, we can improve upon that. As always, the level of competition is very high in this championship so it will not be an easy task, but with three races to go we are pushing to bring a good result to the team.”

Gary Peterson – Team Principal

“We are looking forward to having a great race weekend at Road America. It will be nice to have luck go our way a bit so we can fight against the big teams and hopefully land a podium finish.”

Bobby Oergel – Team Principal

“We are ready for a strong start to the last part of the season. Mosport was a tough race for us but we have been able to put that behind us and now we are fully focused on Road America and we know we can fight here. Everyone in the crew, engineers, and drivers are in good spirit and we are all ready to go have another strong weekend.”
