"It's always great to be racing with the AXR, Cadillac and Whelen Motorsport team over here in the States, so firstly a big thank you to them for having me this weekend. Unfortunately for us, we didn't have the pace to compete with the Acura's this time around so fifth was the best we could do in the circumstances. There's one more race in the Endurance Cup, at Petit Le Mans, so we'll be looking to end the season on a high in October!"
