Ben Keating
Driver
#52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports Oreca 07 LMP2


"My overall feeling is just anxious. We won the Pole race last year, and ended up having a terrible Rolex 24 race. It is my hope that having won the Pole for the start of the Rolex 24 is where our similarities stop when compared to last year. We know we have a great team running the car. We know we have a fast car. We know we have a great team of drivers. Now we just have to be there in the end having had no problems throughout the race. This is a very difficult task.
 
I feel like we have all done everything we needed to do. Now it is all about car prep, driver prep, and staying out of trouble in the race.
 
I was encouraged by the fact that there were no Safety Cars in the qualifying race. For our team, I think no safety cars or limited safety cars can turn into a big advantage in the Rolex 24. Let’s Go already!"
 



Mikkel Jensen
Driver
#52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports Oreca 07 LMP2


"Great start to the Rolex 24 winning the Roar Qualifying race, and also a good start to our season. Ben did a great job in the first half and handed over the car in a position where I just had to manage the gap to the end. Being able to start up front in the class is surely an advantage in this 61-car field. The result from the race itself we can’t use for much, but we learned a lot today that we can take onto the next weekend which is going to be much more important."
 


Scott Huffaker
Driver
#52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports Oreca 07 LMP2


"Really looking forward to this 24 there are a lot of competitive teams.  For me last year was my first time racing the Rolex 24 so I plan to improve upon what I learned and apply it to this year."

 

Nicolas LaPierre
Driver
#52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports Oreca 07 LMP2


"Perfect start for us. Great job from Ben and Mikel. Good pit stops as well. Great to see the sister car with us as well. The team is well prepared for the big race this weekend."
 


Bobby Oergel
Team Principal
#52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports Oreca 07 LMP2


"What a great way to start the season, the drivers and crew have done a great job to gather data and results that are pushing us forward towards the upcoming Rolex 24."
