Driver Spotlight: Brian Frisselle
Driver, No. 9 Action Express Racing Corvette DP
Now that the inaugural TUDOR United SportsCar Championship season is complete, how do you think the year went?
“I think it went pretty well. IMSA was faced with a monumental task with the combined series and all the Balance of Performance issues that came with that. The first season had great racing in all the classes and I expect as the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship moves forward it will get better all around.”
You were right in the hunt for the Tequila Patron North American Endurance Championship title as a part time effort. How hard is that to be competitive when you’re not running full-time?
“It’s certainly not ideal. When you jump into a car of that level against the quality of teams and drivers that are out there competing full time, you have a bit of an uphill battle. In any professional sport, repetition is very important to refining your craft.”
Looking into your crystal ball, what direction do you see the Prototype class heading?
“Well if the rumors are true I imagine there will be less P cars next year and a more equal count between DP and P2. Beyond that I imagine the DP won’t last beyond 2017 and there will be some form of a P2 car heading the P class. But I really don’t know what fully to expect.”
Can you tell us what your racing plans are for 2015?
“I wish I could. I am talking with a few teams, mainly about filling a seat for the NAEC races, but so far nothing concrete. But I will keep working hard to be a part of the TUDOR Championship.”
The holidays are here, what are some of your favorite family traditions?
“This is the time of the year here in Colorado that my family enjoys going to Broncos games and skiing.”
