Andy’s Back At Dyson Racing
Andy Wallace will be back full-time at Dyson Racing in 2007, driving
the #16 Lola B06/10 AER, with Butch Leitzinger.
"I know it is an over worked word, but it really
is an honour to be chosen for this seat," said Wallace. "I
drove with James for a dozen years at Dyson Racing and no one was
quicker in a sportscar. This is a special team - family would be
a better word, and to be back full time with the guys is a great
early Christmas gift. Like most drivers for Rob Dyson, I have had
a great enduring relationship with fond memories. Rob gives you
the tools to do the job right and as a driver, you cannot ask for
Dyson is “thrilled to have Andy back with us full-time. He
is one of the great sportscar drivers. Andy is smooth, quick, consistent
and unselfish as a team member. He has been part of our family for
a long time and like James Weaver, is unparalleled on feed back
and car set-up. He has contributed much to our success over the
years. There really is no one better out there. It was a decision
that made itself."
Andy Wallace is very much looking forward to driving
with his old mate Butch – throughout 2007, in two series.
He’s heading to the US tomorrow (November 28) to carry out
some straight line testing with the Howard Motorsports Crawford,
then it’s off to Homestead for the next Rolex Series test.
Andy Wallace drove with both of his old pals at
Sebring and Petit Le Mans this year, and raced the Highcroft Lola
with Duncan Dayton at most of the other ALMS events.
He is the only
driver who has won all of the "big four" sportscar races:
the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Daytona 24 Hours, the 12 Hours of Sebring,
and Petit Le Mans.

somewhere - although we're not quite sure what he was doing.
