CORE values to the fore as Ryan suffers
AMERICAN LE MANS SERIES: Petit Le Mans, Road Atlanta
THE PLOT: Ryan Dalziel was left gutted, bruised and battered after a late collision cost CORE Autosport a Petit Le Mans finish at Road Atlanta.
The team – with Jon Bennett and Frankie Montecalvo – had shown they had the pace in the LMPC class.
But just nine laps from the end of the 10-hour race, Orlando-based Ryan was looking to consolidate fourth place in class when he was shunted from behind by the Dyson Racing LMP1 car. The 150mph collision sent Ryan into the wall.
It had been the second big smash of the day for the CORE Autosport crew. They had been third in class at the halfway point when Jon Bennett was hit by a GT car which had spun and was trying to rejoin the track. That meant lengthy repairs behind the wall and put the team on the back foot.
But Lanarkshire-born Ryan was delighted with the pace of the car, and being able to help Core Autosport clinch first and second in the driver standings and, first in the team championship in the American Le Mans Series.
