de Radigues With Dyson Again
Driving line-ups at Sebring are gradually falling into place. Here’s
another significant name in a significant car: Didier de Radigues
will be driving the #20 Thetford / Norcold Dyson Racing Lola B160
AER next month, partnering Chris Dyson and TBA.
The Belgian joined the
team for the two endurance races last year, helping #20 to victory
in the 675 class at Sebring, and supporting Chris Dyson’s
charge to the 675 title at Petit Le Mans. de Radigues is a 675 title
holder himself, having won the class in 2001. This year, the little
Lolas will be racing in LMP1, of course.
“Last year we
started a great relationship,” said the man with the Corona
sponsorship. “It's a great family atmosphere. I'm really happy
to drive with Chris again."
last year at the long races helped us clinch the team championship,"
said Chris Dyson.. "We work really well together and he fits
into our team amazingly. He's fast, reliable, and relaxed, which
is exactly what you need in endurance racing."
Rob Dyson is also a
fan: "Didier is one of the most unflappable individuals I've
ever met. It's probably from all the years he spent on motorcycles,
but his attitude is a perfect fit for car racing. We are really
pleased to have him rejoin us for Sebring."
James Weaver, Andy Wallace
and Butch Leitzinger will drive the team’s #16 car at Sebring.
