Between 29 and 30 January in the United States of Ribeirão Preto, there will be two representatives in 24 hours of Daytona, the traditional race for the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship.
Recently, Hélio Castroneves and Marcos Gomes announced on social media that they would be attending the season’s inaugural show in Florida.
The Indianapolis 500 three-time champion will be in the DPI category, a Wayne Taylor Racing Acura ARX-05i. In 2020 the championship winners will share the wheel with Ricky Taylor, Philip Albuquerque and Alexander Rossi.
Gomes will make its fourth participation in the stage, Ferrari 488 racing by GT3 in the Scuderia Corsa. Ribeiro-Pretano’s teammates will be Ryan Briscoe, Ed Jones and Brett Curtis.
Apart from the pair, four other Brazilian drivers are already confirming the incident. They are: Felipe Nasr, Pippo Derani, Augusto Farfas and Daniel Serra.
Because of the epidemic, the event will have limited spectator capacity. The formation of the starting grid is scheduled for this Saturday (23).
