MONT-TREMBLANT, QUEBEC, SEPT. 12 — James Weaver will join Andy Wallace and Chris Dyson in the Crawford SSC2K-Judd at this weekend`s Rolex Series Six Hours of Mont-Tremblant. The 2000 and 2001 Grand-Am champion returns to the Grand-Am fray after missing the series last round at VIR, where Wallace and Dyson took an emotional victory.
This weekend marks the first time the Rolex Series has visited the historic Canadian venue, which hosted World Championship rounds in the sixties and early seventies. Set amidst the lovely Laurentian mountain region, the track`s high-speed sweepers and elevation changes look like they will become a team favorite.
“I always love racing on these classic North American tracks,” Weaver said. “They are wonderful and they still have a lot of character.”
Chris Dyson comes into this weekend six points behind championship leader Didier Theys with two rounds remaining. “I am really excited to have such great co-drivers,” the 24 year-old rookie said. “The track looks great and everyone at Crawford`s been working really hard after VIR to get the car set-up for it. These longer races are really what sportscar racing is all about. We are very lucky and honored to be here, racing. It should be a great weekend.”
Andy Wallace rejoined the Dyson team at VIR and came out on top. “I am really happy to be back with Dyson Racing driving the Crawford. It will be great fun having James with us this weekend.”
The action begins with a track promoter`s test day today, followed by practice on Friday and Qualifying on Saturday. Sunday`s Six Hour Race starts at 11 AM and will be broadcasted live from 11 AM to 1 PM and 3 PM to 5 PM on the Speed Channel.
