Wayne Taylor Racing and Andretti Autosport have started a brand new collaboration in the sportscar world.
The two teams will work together in the coming IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship seasons, as well as in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America, in which WTR has been active for several years.
The team will run under the Wayne Taylor Racing with Andretti Autosport banner, regarding the Konica Minolta-sponsored Acura ARX-06 #10 LMDh car, while Harrison Contracting Company Acura NSX #93 will run in the GTD category at the 24 Hours of Daytona next month.
On top of that, there will be the LMP3 entry #36, which will be run by Jarett Andretti and others.
Car #10 and #93 continue to be operated by WTR from their current location, with #36 will be run by Andretti Autosport. The ultimate end goal is to move the two operations under the same roof at the huge new facility that Andretti has just started building in Indiana, which is planned to be ready in 2025.
Andretti Autosport is already active in Indycar, Extreme E, Formula E, Indy NXT, Australian Supercars and the SuperCopa series in Mexico, and has previously been active in Global Rallycross, plus announcing the plans of forming a Formula 1 team – potentially by buying an existing team.
WTR has won a huge amount of races and titles during the Daytona Prototype and Daytona Prototype international years, heading in the GTP era with the exact same goal. Wayne Taylor has already celebrated his 60-year birthday, and the team had its 15-year anniversary in 2022. So it’s only natural that he starts to think about the future, since neither Ricky nor Jordan Taylor has team owner ambitions in the near future, with their own careers in full swing, and therefore not able to take over the WTR operations just yet.
