Patrick Kelly – Driver of the #52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports Oreca 07-Gibson LMP2
“Racing has been a wonderful distraction from what has been a very challenging year. I wish everyone a safe and wonderful time for this last race of the year at Sebring!”
Simon Trummer – Driver of the #52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports Oreca 07-Gibson LMP2
“Sebring is a unique place indeed. The bumps can bite you very bad. That makes the race one of the hardest during the year. Specially in a LMP2 car, it is super rough. We will do our job and see how it goes. I look forward to go racing for the last time in 2020.”
Scott Huffaker – Driver of the #52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports Oreca 07-Gibson LMP2
“Can’t wait to race at Sebring. It’s going to be an awesome weekend, really looking forward to it!”
Bobby Oergel – Team Principal
“We are really excited to wrap up the 2020 season. This season has been so trying for everyone around the globe, I can’t say enough about the efforts this amazing group of drivers and crew have put in. We have one more final goal to conquer: get Simon the Endurance Driver Championship. Hopefully the weather will hold out for us and we are able to get some dry running in before the race on Saturday”
Ray Mathiasen – Team Principal
“We wish our team and drivers success again this weekend at the tough 12 hours of Sebring. Anything can happen in a 12-hour race, but we’re confident that Pat, Scott and, especially Simon as he pursues the Endurance Cup Championship, will drive like the 2020 Champions they are. Happy to see that once again there will be 4 cars competing in LMP2.”
