HART Racing Team have confirmed via social media that their planned run at the IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship season finale at Petit Le Mans will not now go ahead.
The team’s #69 Acura NSX GT3 ran at the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona, the Sebring 12 Hours and the 6 hours at the Glen but the initial plan to complete the four-race North American Endurance Challenge has fallen victim to budget constraints
The team statement reads:
“HART Racing Team are sad to announce that due to budget situations we will not be attending Petit Le Mans.
“It was a very tough decision but one that was necessary for us to have a chance at a 2019 season.
“We are working on our plans for 2019 now and will release those once they are solidified.
“We want to thank everyone for their continued support and we hope you continue to follow us in the future.
“We were really looking forward to attending Petit but unfortunately it did not work out. We will never give up and are working hard to be back on the grid in 2019.”
