If it wasn’t for Jim and Pam Griffith, Katherine Legge’s career in the United States might not have taken off.
In 2005, Legge raced in the Formula Atlantic series with the Griffith’s Polestar Racing Group, which is based in Chardon, Ohio. The husband-and-wife-led team fielded two cars that season.
Legge won her U.S. race debut in Atlantic at Long Beach, to successfully lay the groundwork for the start of her career on these shores. She won three races and finished third in the championship, before graduating to Champ Car in 2006.
This weekend at the Michelin IMSA SportsCar Encore, Legge is back with Polestar in the team’s No. 40 Ligier JS P3 LMP3 car.
She’ll co-drive this weekend at Sebring International Raceway with David and Keith Grant, who raced a handful of LMP3 races this year with Polestar during the 2018 season. The team has tested at Road Atlanta in advance of this weekend.
