Dragon and Truecar respond to Legge statement After announcing their new driver Sebastian Saavedra for the No. 6 TRUECar Dragon Racing entry yesterday without reference to its previous driver, Katherine Legge, Dragon Racing and TRUECar, Inc. issued a joint statement Wednesday confirming that they have ended their relationship with the British driver.
“Both Dragon Racing and TRUECar have tried to amicably resolve this matter with Legge and her representatives to no avail – and aside of acknowledging the existence of the dispute, due to the confidential nature of the dispute, neither of the parties will be making any further public statements regarding this matter, but both TrueCar and Dragon Racing have ample confidence that they will undoubtedly prevail,” the statement read.
“We have thoroughly enjoyed our association with Katherine, but after 12 months of collaboration, hard work, and TRUECar's sincere efforts to resurrect Katherine's open-wheel career, TRUECar has decided to pursue a different driver for 2013 IndyCar season,” said TRUECar CEO Scott Painter.
Team president Jay Penske added that he was confident in the revisions his team has made for the year ahead.
“We've had to make some difficult choices this offseason, based on the goal of winning races and doing what is best our partners, sponsors, and team,” said Penske. “And I adamantly believe with the experience of our crew, our engineers, drivers, and the tremendous support of our partners, we have a team in 2013 that can compete for the championship.”
