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.
Overcoming adversity in one of the toughest endurance races in recent history, Level 5 Motorsports achieved a well-earned finish in the 90th anniversary 24 Hours of Le Mans. Team principal Scott Tucker took the No. 33 Siemens/Alpina Watches/Ohiya Casino Resort-sponsored Honda Performance Development ARX-03b to the checkered flag Sunday afternoon at Circuit de la Sarthe.
Nine-time national driving champion Tucker and co-drivers Marino Franchitti and Ryan Briscoe entered the French endurance classic with high hopes, despite an unrepresentative qualifying effort that put them far back on the starting grid. However, a stunning opening quadruple stint by the IZOD IndyCar Series star saw the Michelin-shod prototype move up to third in the competitive LMP2 class.
