Meyer Shank Racing’s Katherine Legge took the Motul pole position award for the Monterey Grand Prix in California on Saturday.
Driving the No.86 MSR Acura NXS GT3, Legge set a new lap record of 1:24.456s.
Speaking following qualifying, Legge commented by saying:
The car was really great for qualifying. “I pitted after that lap thinking that was pretty much all I had and to also make sure we looked after the tires for tomorrow. I sat there for a good five minutes hoping that no one went any faster, so that was the hard part. The car I think will be great, we just can’t make any mistakes and Ihope that we can come home with a good finish.”
Team co-owner Michael Shank commented by saying:
Katherine has been on it all weekend and I’m super proud of her, “One of her dear friends and students that she teaches just got hurt in the session before so everyone was shook up a little bit. She really put a great lap together, the Acura NSX was really strong today. The strategy that our engineer, Ryan, had leading up to this session was just perfect.”
