Halliday, Masarati & Donaldson For PK
After an eventful Spa LMES meeting for Liz Halliday and Piers Masarati (in an Autorlando Porsche), this pairing will be racing the PK Sport Porsche at Petit Le Mans and Laguna Seca, with Ian Donaldson making up a threesome at the first of these events.

“After my run in the Spa 24 Hours, I felt that the time was right to move up to the ALMS,” commented Liz Halliday. The young lady had some dramas at Spa at the end of July (including a wheel rim breaking, which she levered out from under the car) – and more dramas in the 1000 Km event at the same circuit last Sunday, finishing the race in another Autorlando Porsche with just third gear left.

dailysportscar.comShe and Piers Masarati had been enduring some serious handling problems on Friday and Saturday, but it all started to come right on Sunday morning, when Masarati was fastest in GT in the warm up.

A fifth place was on the cards at Spa, the gearbox problems eventually resulting in a seventh in GT.

So Petit Le Mans next for these two: “Piers has been a real help recently, and to have Ian in the car at Road Atlanta renews an old partnership – remember we had a great result at Bathurst last year.”

Piers Masarati has driven for PK Sport on numerous occasions during the last few seasons: “I’m delighted to be driving again with Mike (Pickup) and hopefully we can make some more progress on the result and speed we had at Mosport.”

The Londoner drove with Tony Burgess in Canada, PK Sport then missing the Road America event.

“I have worked with Piers and Ian in the past,” says Mike Pickup, “and now with Liz it brings a new and exciting dimension to the ALMS.”

This is the Caffi / Liddell / Warnock PK Sport Porsche at Petit Le Mans last October.
