CORE autosport set sights on GRC Lites wins

1 Mins read

CORE autosport are aiming to secure their maiden Red Bull Global Rallycross Lites win this season.

After securing their first podiums in 2016, their first season in the championship, the Florida team want to continue their progression this year.

“When we débuted in GRC Lites last year, our goal was to familiarise ourselves with the cars, circuits and specifics of the series0, but also to demonstrate how competitive we were by finishing on the podium,” CORE GRC Program Manager Brian Colangelo said.

“Our preparation improved with each race and our four podium finishes proved that to be true,” he continued. “For 2017, we have our sights set on race wins and hope to establish ourselves as the team to beat in rallycross and a viable option for OEM partners.”

Driver/owner Jon Bennett and Colin Braun will again race for the team, but will dovetail their campaigns with a run in the IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Series, meaning they will miss three rounds and a chance to win the championship.

The double header in Thompson and the championship’s long-awaited first visit to Indianapolis will be the events skipped by CORE autosport.
