Braun Returns to CORE autosport PC Program
- Updated: December 30, 2013
Colin Braun will return to CORE autosport for the 2014 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship season, it was announced Monday.
The 25-year-old, who helped take the Rock Hill, S.C.-based organization to its third consecutive ALMS Prototype Challenge teams’ championship, will continue to pilot the squad’s Oreca FLM09 with team owner Jon Bennett.
“Over the past two years I’ve seen what this team is capable of and winning the team championship the past three years shows that I’m with a championship-caliber team, which is where every race car driver wants to be,” Braun said.
“This team really has become like family and I am very glad to be keeping our tight knit group of guys together for 2014 as well.”
Bennett added: “His on track performance speaks for itself and he’s been an excellent coach for me as I continue to hone my race craft.
“With Colin and I back together for the first season of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship I don’t see any reason why we can’t make it PC Championship number four.”
Braun was initially tipped as a possible candidate for the CORE-run factory Porsche 911 RSR program in GTLM, but the German manufacturer selected existing works drivers for those roles.
CORE has yet to confirm the newly re-numbered No. 54 PC car’s driver lineup for the Rolex 24.
