PDS clients Level 5 Motorsports and 8Star Motorsports scored a win and a podium finish at the American Le Mans Series season, and series, finale at Road Atlanta last weekend.
PDS Client Level 5 Motorsports made history Saturday at Virginia International Raceway, as the Scott Tucker-owned organization became four-time American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón champions following P2 victory in the Oak Tree Grand Prix.
PDS client Level 5 Motorsports took home another victory this season thanks to a flawless and strategic run for the No. 551 Honda Performance Development ARX-03b prototype driven by Scott Tucker and Ryan Briscoe. The team's sister car driven by Marino Franchitti and Guy Cosmo placed second.
PDS finally brought back some good memories from Baltimore, (PDS owner Lee Szczypski’s visit to Baltimore in 2011 included having to rebuild a whole harness overnight before race day!). While this year’s visit included a crash at the start of the race that took out the #551 of Level 5, the sister #552 car pushed through with a dominating performance and gave the team its fifth consecutive P2 class win this season.
It’s starting to be a really good habit as PDS client Level 5 picked up another class win over the weekend at Road America with the #551 car driven by Scott Tucker and Simon Pagenaud coming in first and the #552 car of Marino Franchitti and Ricardo Gonzalez placing third.
Continuing with its winning ways in the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón, Level 5 Motorsports drivers Scott Tucker and Ryan Briscoe claimed victory in the Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park. The No. 551 car recorded its third P2 win in four ALMS races following a hard fought battle that took man and machine to their limits. The team’s #552 sister car came in third, giving PDS a double podium finish.
PDS client Level 5 Motorsport may not have scored a win or a podium finish at Le Mans this year, but sometimes just getting a finish at the 24 hour race and taking the checkered flag is a reward of its own.
PDS spent the past weekend with its newest client Level 5 Motorsports at Laguna Seca for the third round of the 2013 American Le Mans Series championship. Owner Lee Szczypski couldn’t have asked for a better way to kick off this new partnership with Level 5 crossing the finish line first in its class.
