News & Notes

*There are no changes from the Roar in the Prototype class, but there are still a few seats available in Prototype Challenge. It will be interesting to see who will fill those open slots.*

*Risi Competizione’s new Ferrari 488 GTE chassis has been built and went through a shakedown, so they will be ready for race week.*

*Memo Rojas will make his GTLM debut with Scuderia Corsa in the brand new Ferrari 488 GTE.*

*Interesting move to see that Stevenson Motorsports has placed their four full-time drivers in one car. At least, the move will allow Habul, von Moltke, Said, and Vautier to race for the class victory.*

*Two seats are available in the Number 21 Konrad Motorsport Lamborghini Huracán GT3.*

*Sabine Schmitz replaces Connor de Phillippi in the Number 30 Frikadelli Racing Porsche 911 GT3.*

*Once again, Sergio Pérez is listed to drive but rumors are that he will only attend to support the team. However, anything is possible in sportscar racing, so do not be surprised if we see the Mexican Formula One star make his debut in sportscar racing next week.*
