Daytona IMSA Test Notebook, GTD

Kudos to the Riley Technologies guys for delivering the #33 Viper to the test in ‘Ricky Bobby’ style livery!


The new Lamborghini Huracan GT3 is here with Huracan GTD branding, the car is a development Huracan with customer deliveries set to begin next month. Several drivers from the announced US customer teams are likely to try the car out here.


Also here with a development car are Mercedes Benz, the purposeful looking AMG GT3 is here with a double purpose: To show off the car to potential customers and to take part in the process to establish a balance of performance.


The new Mercedes though will not be racing in the Rolex 24 Hours with deliveries to current Mercedes customers taking first priority. No news yet either of confirmed US based customers for the new Benz.

Audi though will be racing and they have a new shape R8 LMS here for the test with Magnus Racing and Stevensons Motorsport due to take time in the car.


TRG-AMR is here with its Aston Martin V12 Vantage. The California-based team is believed to be engaged in ongoing negotiations with IMSA to satisfy the manufacturer marketing agreement it would need to continue using the car in 2016.


Turner Motorsports have one of their pair of BMW M6 GT3s here too.


Finally for now Autometrics have their Porsche 911 GT3 R on site.
