CORE Autosport is a race team that’s competed in IMSA Prototype Lites and GT3 Cup Championships. This year, their bit story isn’t about switching categories; it’s switching their focus and manufacturing capabilities to fill the shortage of face masks needed to combat the spread of the virus.
Racer Jon Bennett owns CORE and successful medical equipment manufacturing company Composite Resources. Bennett has re-purposed CORE’s manufacturing capabilities to help fill the need.
“The abilities we have here meant that in 24 hours, we were able to design mask prototypes and go into production. We’re very fortunate to have those capabilities to help.”
The company expects to start shipments next week.
