Core Autosport Heading To Mid-Ohio Challenge

Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course

CORE autosport looks ahead to enhance ALMS standings at Mid-Ohio

CORE autosport is ready to build upon its team records in the Le Mans Prototype Challenge (LMPC) class and enhance its driver and team points lead in this weekend’s Mid-Ohio Sports Car Challenge American Le Mans Series (ALMS) event.

The team comes off of a roller-coaster race at Mosport International Raceway where the team finished one-two in class – with the #06 Excel Consultants / Composite Resources ORECA FLM09 of Ricardo Gonzalez and Gunnar Jeannette in first, followed by the sister #05 Bayshore Recycling / Composite Resources car driven by team founder Jon Bennett and Frankie Montecalvo.

With the Mosport finish, CORE autosport scored another ALMS record as the first LMPC team to finish one-two in the history of the class. This is the second record for the team, as they were the first LMPC team to score a multiple-team podium finish at the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring in March 2011.

Both Ricardo Gonzalez and Gunnar Jeannette scored podium results in the LMPC class at the corresponding event last year – Gonzalez finishing second on his class debut with Luis Diaz while Jeannette was third with Elton Julian. Frankie Montecalvo also made his LMPC class debut at Mid-Ohio in 2010.
