AIM Vasser Sullivan Lexus Drivers Looking Forward to 2020 Rolex 24, Working with NASCAR Champion Kyle Busch


Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – AIM Vasser Sullivan has been one of a handful of teams in recent weeks that headed south to Florida for testing ahead of January’s Rolex 24 At Daytona, the season-opener for the 2020 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

The Lexus team will have even more eyes on it during the upcoming twice-around-the-clock contest, as it was announced last week that 2015 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Champion Kyle Busch – who also is among the Championship 4 heading into Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway – would be joining the driver lineup. It is not yet confirmed if Busch will compete in the No. 12 or No. 14 Lexus RC F GT3.

After the news, both Frankie Montecalvo and Jack Hawksworth were on hand at the World Center of Racing as part of the team’s two-day test last week and were eager to work with the stock car star. They both had been with Busch the day prior at Toyota’s annual Motorsport Day in Dallas the day prior.

Champion Daytona Prototype Drivers Look Forward to Returning to Daytona 24


Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Joao Barbosa knows what it feels like to drive a Corvette Daytona Prototype (DP) to victory in the Rolex 24 At Daytona, which he did in 2014 alongside Action Express Racing co-drivers Christian Fittipaldi and Sebastien Bourdais.

Barbosa and Eric Curran both know what it’s like to drive Corvette DPs to IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship titles. Barbosa did it alongside Fittipaldi in 2014 and 2015, while Curran won the 2016 title with Dane Cameron as his co-driver.

That’s why both drivers are excited for this weekend’s Classic 24 Hour At Daytona Presented by IMSA. They’re going to get the chance to relive positive memories from their not-too-distant past in Corvette DPs this weekend.

SEBRING, Fla. – The second annual Michelin IMSA SportsCar Encore weekend kicked off on Saturday with three practice sessions for the LMP3, GT3 and GT4 racecars competing in Sunday’s four-hour endurance race at Sebring International Raceway.

The fastest lap time in each class was set during the final practice in the midafternoon, with rain dampening the first session and the track warming up during midday practice.

Lance Willsey is co-driving the LMP3 this weekend with Indy Lights champion Oliver Askew, who was recently announced as a full-time IndyCar driver with McLaren in 2020.

What A Ride: Magnussen and Corvette Racing Through the Years


Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Jan Magnussen and Corvette Racing wrapped up a fantastic, 16-year run together with last week’s announcement that the Dane would be exploring other opportunities for 2020.

It’s a ride that included 35 victories – including five wins in the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Presented by Advance Auto Parts, four 24 Hours of Le Mans victories, four Motul Petit Le Mans victories and a Rolex 24 At Daytona triumph. It also included five IMSA titles and played a significant role in Magnussen’s selection as one of the 50 Great IMSA Drivers in the IMSA: Celebrating 50 Years book published last year to commemorate IMSA’s 50th Anniversary season in 2019.

Let’s look at some of the highlights of Magnussen’s Corvette Racing career over the years:

Auberlen Reflects on Tying Pruett for Most Wins in IMSA History


Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – It isn’t like he planned it, but Bill Auberlen couldn’t have come up with a more dramatic way to launch his way atop the IMSA record book.

Auberlen scored career victory No. 60 Saturday night to tie Scott Pruett for the most in IMSA history. Driving the No. 96 Turner Motorsport BMW M6 GT3 for the final stint of the Motul Petit Le Mans at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, Auberlen was running second in GT Daytona (GTD) and hounding class leader Felipe Fraga in the No. 33 Riley Motorsports-Team AMG Mercedes-AMG GT3.

Precious time was ticking away in the final minutes of the 10-hour endurance race to close the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season, but Auberlen couldn’t get past Fraga. Suddenly, on the final lap, the No. 33 went off course in the esses section as it ran out of fuel. Auberlen roared past and into the lead.
