As of Round 1

  • I’m proud of the team effort from all the drivers – James, Mark, Colin and myself – and the team. We had an incredibly well built and bulletproof car. We led at the 6-hour mark, 12-hour mark, 18-hour mark and we would’ve led at the 24-hour mark as well. But it just wasn’t meant to be. The most important thing is Colin is fine, the car will heal itself and we’ll be back at Sebring.

  • I’m gutted for everybody. We were in a position to win the race and had that guy used better judgment, I think we would’ve won the race. It’s one thing when you make a bold move and get on the bad side of it, but it’s another thing when I make a routine move that I’ve made a hundred times in a race and that happens.

  • I can’t say enough about the CORE autosport team. I think they are the best in the business. They gave us a great racecar. The setup was spot-on.

    Mark Wilkins
  • While it’s always good to be on the podium, it wasn’t necessarily representative of the effort the whole team put in. Overall, it’s fantastic to be back with CORE. Everyone is so welcoming, I feel like I’m home.
