5. Mike Conway: Making his sports car racing debut, Mike Conway proved to be one of the storylines of 2013. The Englishman scored a season-high four LMP2 class victories in the final five rounds of the FIA World Endurance Championship with G-Drive Racing by Delta-ADR and co-drivers John Martin and Roman Rusinov, while also shining in his one-and-only ALMS start with Level 5 Motorsports. An exclusion at Le Mans for an illegal fuel cell ultimately denied the 30-year-old the FIA WEC LMP2 title. Conway’s talent was quickly noticed by Toyota, which has brought him on board to be its test and reserve driver for next year in LMP1.

This morning, Red Bull KTM announced that its lead 250cc rider and former two-time world Champion Marvin Musquin suffered a torn ACL while practicing last week. The 250SX Class favorite placed his foot down in a corner and tweaked his knee, but it appeared to be minor. Further tests revealed the tear and Musquin is scheduled to undergo surgery in his native France this week.

“This is an unfortunate injury, but we know Marvin will do the all steps necessary to recover as quickly as possible and come back when he is 100%,” said Red Bull KTM Factory Team Manager Roger DeCoster in the announcement.
