The Oreca 07 / Tower Motorsport crew will have a ‘French touch’ at the 24 Hours of Daytona. Gabriel Aubry and John Farano will be supported by two French pilots. Matthieu Vaxiviere and Timothé Buret will reinforce the LMP2 crew for the start of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar season.
The two Frenchies are familiar with the LMP2 category and the Oreca 07. Matthieu Vaxiviere is one of the headliners behind the wheel of a prototype. We saw it in IMSA recently on the Cadillac DPi / Wayne Taylor Racing with a 2nd place at the 2019 Petit Le Mans.
As for Timothé Buret, he will make his debut in IMSA, but he knows American races having driven in Pro Mazda at Juncos Racing with a victory in Indianapolis. The Montpellier driver then bounced back in Endurance racing at Panis Racing. Buret rode for DragonSpeed during the last 24 Hours of Le Mans.
