Ferrari Challenge Championship Nearly in MacNeil's Grasp Ahead of Monza Season Finale


Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Cooper MacNeil is staring down the challenge of two IMSA season finales in the next two months.
In IMSA’s flagship series, the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, MacNeil sits fourth in the GT Daytona (GTD) standings in the No. 63 Scuderia Corsa Ferrari 488 GT3. Although being only one of six drivers in the field to have a top 10 finish in each race this season, MacNeil is narrowly out of reach for the class championship, which will be decided at the Motul Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta on Oct. 13.

Ryan Eversley Scores 1st Pirelli World Challenge TCR Drivers Title, Kozarov, OGorman Secure TC, TCA Drivers Championships in 2018


Ryan Eversley would definitely admit that his Pirelli World Challenge TCR Drivers’ championship this year was not easy.

The Atlanta, Ga., veteran racer had a dogfight on his hands in the debut of the TCR series in 2018 when he rejoined RealTime Racing for an assault on the coveted point championship. After winning GT races for the Wisconsin-based operation the past few years, Eversley and RealTime Racing teamed again with the new Honda Civic Type-R TCR car in the inaugural TCR season in North America.

Taylor Drives No. 10 Cadillac To New WeatherTech Raceway Record En Route to Motul Pole Award


Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

MONTEREY, Calif. – Jordan Taylor shattered his brother’s year-old track record at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca en route to taking the Motul Pole Award in qualifying for Sunday’s two-hour, 40-minute America’s Tire 250.

Driving the No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R, Taylor posted a best time of one minute, 16.181 seconds (105.758 mph) around the 2.238-mile permanent road circuit to take the top starting spot. It bested the previous WeatherTech Championship Prototype record of 1:16.853 (104.8 mph) set by Ricky Taylor in qualifying here last year in the No. 10 Cadillac.

It was Taylor’s 10th career IMSA pole (eight GRAND-AM, two WeatherTech Championship) and his first since taking the pole at WeatherTech Raceway in 2015. Most importantly, it gives Taylor and co-driver Renger van der Zande a leg up on their competition for the 2018 WeatherTech Championship Prototype title.

Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

MONTEREY, Calif. – Oliver Gavin now has 22 career pole positions in IMSA competition, but it’s been a long time coming.

MONTEREY, Calif. – Derani Joins No. 31 Whelen Cadillac Team Alongside Nasr for Full 2019 WeatherTech Championship

Action Express Racing today confirmed its full-season driver lineups for the 2019 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. The lineup for its No. 5 Mustang Sampling Cadillac DPi-V.R came as no surprise, as the team confirmed current drivers Filipe Albuquerque and Joao Barbosa will continue in the car, along with Christian Fittipaldi in the Rolex 24 At Daytona in what will be his final race as a driver.

The big surprise was the addition of current Tequila Patrón ESM driver Pipo Derani, who will share the No. 31 Whelen Engineering Cadillac DPi with incumbent driver Felipe Nasr for the full year. Eric Curran, the 2016 WeatherTech Championship Prototype co-champion and current Prototype class points co-leader with Nasr, will move to a Michelin Endurance Cup-only role with the No. 31 team next year.

On Heels of New BMWs First Win, Edwards Looks for More Monterey Magic in America's Tire 250


Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – BMW Team RLL driver John Edwards can’t put his finger on why, but WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca has been a special place over the years for the co-driver of the No. 24 BMW M8 GTE machine.

In two of the last three years, including last year’s America’s Tire 250, Edwards has stood atop the victory podium at the end of hard-fought IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship events. And while he hasn’t competed in the series in some time, Edwards also has three IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge race victories on the picturesque, 2.238-mile road course near Monterey, California.

“It's been very good to me and not just in my professional career, but also in junior formula coming up,” Edwards said. “I locked up the Star Mazda championship (in 2008) and the Atlantic Championship (in 2009) there in back-to-back years. My first podium with BMW Team RLL was also there (in 2013).

New Car, High Hopes Carry AFS/PR1 Mathiasen Motorsports to WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca


Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – In many ways, the 2018 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season has been “baptism by fire” for AFS/PR1 Mathiasen Motorsports.

While the PR1/Mathiasen part of the equation has been around the WeatherTech Championship for several years, it was brand new territory for AFS and its longtime driver, Sebastian Saavedra, a veteran of IndyCar competition. The team paired Saavedra with fellow Colombian Gustavo Yacaman, a driver who has had some familiarity and success in the WeatherTech Championship, but this would be Yacaman’s first full-time run in the WeatherTech Championship in a few years.

Being the only team in the series to field the Ligier LMP2 chassis added to the challenge. The drivers and PR1 owner Bobby Oergel had nothing but good things to say about the Onroak Automotive personnel they worked with on the chassis, but strong results were hard to come by.

On top of that, the level of competition in the Prototype class reached an all-time high – at least in WeatherTech Championship history, if not the entire history of IMSA.
