Before the 2020 Daytona 24 Hours race, the Magnus Racing team revealed the livery of their racing car for the 2020 season of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
The American private team Magnus Racing confirms its commitment for the year 2020 in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar and in particular at the famous American endurance race in Daytona in Florida. This team has signed a partnership with GRT Grasser Racing. In the first official test of the 2020 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season, the new GRT Magnus team enters the No. 44 Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo with Flex-Box as its main partner.
The blue, orange and white Flex-Box logo adorns the new livery of the Lamborghini n ° 44, presenting triangular shapes in different shades of blue adorning the sports car body, a big leap compared to the fluid lines of the livery past.
Veteran Magnus Racing drivers – Andy Lally and Spencer Pumpelly – will join team owner John Potter at the wheel for the preseason test as the team prepares for its 11th season of competition. Lally, who joined the team for the first time in 2012 and immediately contributed to the team's first victory at the Daytona 24H, will return as Potter's co-driver for the 2020 season. As a pilot, John and Andy have won the Daytona 24 hours twice and many other major races.
Marco Mapelli (Lamborghini factory driver) will join the team as the fourth driver for all events in January. Originally from Italy, Mapelli joins as a veteran of a number of international programs including the Japanese Super GT series, Blancpain GT, GT Masters, International GT Open and specialized events including the 12 Hours of Bathurst.
The Roar Before the 24 begins on Friday January 3, 2020 and will include seven training sessions, as well as a qualifying session.
