Katherine Legge happy with qualifying performance at Long Beach

Katherine Legge performed well in the fifteen-minute and very close qualifying session at Long Beach at the wheel of the #93 Acura NSX GT3 from Michael Shank Racing.

Katherine Legge was eighth fastest in a sixteen-car GT Daytona field for Saturday's Grand Prix of Long Beach, round three of the 2017 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

A great achievement for her and the whole Michael Shank Racing team as the car was damaged in the second practice session right before qualifying.

"I was pushing the whole way," said Legge. "Since we lost a bit of practice time, we didn’t really know what to do tire pressure wise so we pumped them up to try to get them to come in because we had been struggling with that. I think we may have gone a little higher than we should have, but we live and learn. It’s a learning process for us. I could have probably put a lap together a little bit better but overall I’m just really proud of the team for hustling to get us back out there in time."
