MacNeil and Vilander stays at Scuderia Corsa

Cooper MacNeil and Toni Vilander will stay at Scuderia Corsa for another season in the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

This is the third season for MacNeil at the Houston-based team. He started racing for the team in 2018 after winning the 2016 and 2017 Champions with Christina Nielsen. The team hasn’t run under the Scuderia Corsa banner since then, but as WeatherTech Racing, since the MacNeil family owns the automotive floor mat manufacturer.

Vilander still has close ties to Ferrari, and he was sent to Italy to pick up their latest Ferrari F488 GT3 Evo car, which is undergoing tests at the Fiorano test track, right outside the Ferrari factory.

The pair will once again be joined by Jeff Westphal for the endurance races, while Alessandro Balzan will make his racing comeback, after being out of the car due to health reasons. It was Balzan winning both the titles with Christina Nielsen.

The ROAR Before The 24 test on 3-5 January will be the first chance for the whole team to be assembled. That test will be at the Daytona track in Florida, where the opening round of the year will be run three weeks later.
