Evora In Hand, Taggart Tests In Florida

With a Lotus Evora GT4 under the Taggart Autosport awning, Jim Taggart and his team are spending early January testing in Florida. The first challenge for the team is the double national at the historic Sebring International Raceway, with a rough track surface similar to many of the street circuits the Pirelli World Challenge GTS class will visit in 2014.

Having run a pair of Lotus Exiges in the 2013 Pirelli World Challenge, earning rookie of the year honors, Taggart Autosport took delivery of a sleek GT4-spec Evora in December through the Port of Miami.

After a shakedown run at Road Atlanta, the car was thoroughly inspected and prepped for duties at the 17-turn Sebring, where Taggart will run the famed SCCA "Winter Nationals," now a SCCA Majors event in the T1 class.

Facing the Evora, and perhaps a good indicator for the upcoming 2014 Pirelli World Challenge season, will be American sports cars such as Mustangs and Camaros, also running in T1 SCCA configuration.

Following the double race weekend at Sebring, Taggart and teammate Tom Long will further put the Lotus through its paces at a six-hour endurance race, Thursday at the PBOC Winterfest, again at Sebring.

Lotus fans and supporters are invited to stop by the Taggart Autosport paddock in Sebring. The Evora will run in a black testing livery with gold and silver highlights.

About Taggart Autosport: Taggart Autosport competed in the Pirelli World Challenge GTS Championship for the 2013 season, also running various SCCA Major races with a pair of Lotus Exiges for driver Jim Taggart. Jim is a successful pharmaceutical entrepreneur turned race car driver, earning the National SCCA Rookie of the Year award in 2012. The team is supported by Lotus Cars USA, VIRginia International Raceway, SmartCharms.com, Safecraft Racing, The Jumbo Company and Charity Victory Junction Gang.
