Chilean racer Pino is the new hot name in sportscar racing year 2022, with him competing in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship as well. He did a single race for Inter Europol Competition in 2021, and that was such a good experience, that this collaboration continues.
Dayson has previously raced for teams like 360 Racing and RLR MSport. He knows the car quite well, which is a good thing for a gentleman driver.
Portuguese racer Olivera is another younger talent, who moved from karting to Formula 4 in 2021. He will make his sportscar debut in the Asian Le Mans Series with these four races.
Pino and Dayson will also be racing the European Le Mans Series in 2022, but it’s not yet announced if they will share a car or be split up. The team will run their regular #13 and #14 in the ELMS, with Charles Crews being confirmed as one of the drivers – but also without being put into a specific car just yet.
