BRASELTON, GA (Nov. 10 2021) – The 2021 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season will come to a close with Motul Petit Le Mans at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta. There, CORE autosport will seek its sixth team championship in IMSA’s premier series.
Petit Le Mans is a 10-hour race with approximately half of it taking place at night. To tackle this challenge, CORE once again brings in George Kurtz to join full-season drivers Bennett and Braun behind the wheel.
Kurtz said, “I am ready to get back in the No. 54 machine with Colin and Jon and help them win a championship. We tested at Road Atlanta recently and have a good playbook on what we need from the car. The CORE team knows exactly how to prepare for Petit Le Mans and I feel confident we will be in contention for the win.”
