The latest round of FIA Global Driver Ratings were quietly released last Tuesday, December 9, but feature some notable additions in the face of some news that has occurred over the last few days.
North American sports car veterans Max Angelelli, Anthony Lazzaro and Andy Pilgrim have either been added or had their ratings change.
Angelelli and Pilgrim have both been added as Golds. Meanwhile Lazzaro, who was listed as a Gold on the Dec. 3 version of the list, is now listed as a Silver.
Angelelli would likely figure into Wayne Taylor Racing’s LMP2 entry to the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans, provided WTR opts to take up its invitation.
Newly confirmed Porsche Junior Sven Mueller has been added as a Silver, although this presents a potential discrepancy as fellow Porsche Junior Connor De Phillippi is still rated a Gold.
Last year, while De Phillippi was a Gold, his fellow Porsche Junior Alex Riberas was a Silver.
Two 2014 champions, IMSA Porsche GT3 Canada’s Scott Hargrove (Gold) and Ferrari Challenge North America’s Christopher Ruud (Silver) are also among those added to the list.
