Katherine Legge performed really well but was unlucky in the Grand Prix of Long Beach. The British sportscar ace was at the wheel of the #93 Acura NSX GT3 from Michael Shank Racing.
Racing in a close and competitive GT Daytona field, Katherine Legge and her co-driver Andy Lally were strong in a very chaotic 100-minute event. The two were fighting for the top-spots in class but faced a lot of bad luck preventing them of scoring a fully deserved podium.
Katherine Legge's Acura NSX GT3 was running third, dropped to eleventh and finally managed to finish the race in a positive seventh place in class.
"It was good – it’s really difficult on a street course to pass or get passed so it was just about trying to be smart and maximize track position," stated Katerine Legge. "We had a good strategy, I’m just gutted for the whole team. We had a great driver change, we were fast, and we were closer to the front than we have been so far. So we can take the positives and move on. For me personally, from Daytona to Sebring I made a big improvement and from Sebring to here I’ve made improvement so I just need to keep my head down and keep learning these GT cars."
