Ryan Lewis will contest the 2020 Rolex 24 At Daytona, marking the LMP2 category debut for both Ryan and for Indianapolis-based ERA Motorsport.
While he is yet to make an LMP2 race start, Lewis has competed in LMP machinery in the past. He competed in in the LMP1 category of the American Le Mans Series back in 2008 in a one-off appearance with Intersport, before finding success in the LMPC category over the next decade.
“I could not be more excited about this amazing opportunity,” he said. “Just getting the chance to race at Daytona is always a privilege. And being able to do so in one of the fastest and most competitive categories on the planet makes it all the more special. I cannot thank Dwight and Kyle enough for bringing me on board.”
Ryan will share driving duties with Era Motorsport team principal Kyle Tilley, Dwight Merriman and former Peugeot LMP1 factory driver Nic Minassian.
“ERA has brought together an excellent group of people for the programme, Lewis continued.
“Considering how quickly everything came together, I have been amazed at how smoothly the operation has gone. It is a real testament to the group of people involved. Our test at the Roar went very well and we achieved almost everything we set out to do. I am feeling very confident about our prospects going into the race”
