Lammers Joins Dyson For Sebring
“Jan represents the final part of our plan for Sebring,”
said Chris Dyson today. “Like Dyson Racing, Jan’s won
twice at the Daytona 24-hour race, and like us, he’s still
looking for his first overall win at Sebring. His vast racing experience
is a positive addition to our effort.”
Dutchman joins Chris Dyson and Didier de Radigues in the #20 Lola
quite a name for himself as a man for all cars recently, having
stepped into a Care Racing Ferrari 550 at Petit Le Mans last year,
and then the Doran-Lista Doran at the recent Rolex 24. No doubt
he came highly recommended by Andy Wallace.
a pleasure for me to join America’s best sportscar racing
team for America’s oldest and most prestigious sportscar race,”
said Lammers. “Like my new teammates, I still have a score
to settle at Sebring. I’ve won two of the top three sportscar
races in the world, and I want to add the third. This is always
a tough race; from the standpoint of physical demands on the car.
Twelve hours here is more demanding than 24 hours at Le Mans or
Daytona. But I think I’m with a team that has the resources
to handle those demands. Dyson Racing has a great organization;
I’ve wanted to run with them for years. I think we have an
excellent chance for a good result.”
He drove the
Champion Audi to second place at Sebring two years ago, with Wallace,
but here’s a chance to compare the Lola with his Domes –
and to take on the Audis, of course.
We make that
14 (15, 16?) drivers in the Sebring line-up with F1 experience,
seven or eight in LMP1, six or seven in GTS and one in GT.
