40 GT cars ready for TUDOR series

December 9, 2013

gt_carsFans of GT battles will enjoy a total of 40 cars on the grid for the 2014 2014 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship in the GT Le Mans (GTLM) and GT Daytona (GTD) classes.

After a brilliant season of GT battles in the American Le Mans Series, the newly named GT Le Mans category returns with even more competition in 2014. While the back-to-back championship winning Corvette Racing squad returns next year with the new CR.7 Stingray, their competition has stepped up to a new level. The CORE autosport run two-car factory Porsche team will make its debut while two-car factory teams from BMW and SRT Viper will be back.

The Ferrari competition will double with Krohn Racing doing battle in selected rounds – joining forces with Risi Competizione. Aston Martin Racing will also contest selected rounds while Team Falken Tire will join with a privateer Porsche from Sebring onwards.

In GTD, 28 entries from 21 different teams were accepted. Manufacturers represented in both GTLM and GTD include Aston Martin, BMW, Ferrari, Porsche and Chrysler’s Street & Racing Technology (SRT) brand. GTD also will include Audi and another manufacturer to be announced.

Among the criteria used to select teams was full-time participation in either the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series or the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón in 2013. Those two series have merged to create the TUDOR Championship, which opens its inaugural season with the 52nd Rolex 24 At Daytona on Jan. 25-26, 2014.

“We are flattered that so many teams stepped forward to enter the TUDOR Championship, and we expanded our capacity to accommodate as many teams as possible,” said IMSA CEO Ed Bennett.

“The overwhelming response we received from teams wishing to participate provided further validation for the merger. We believe the teams we have selected will provide world-class competition and will be our calling card as we embark on an exciting new era of sports car racing in North America.”
