After its inaugural tests on the Paul-Ricard circuit airfield and on the Magny-Cours track with Ricky Taylor and Matt McNury, it was at Road Atlanta that the American prototype took to the track. This time, it is Filipe Albuquerque who is behind the wheel of the one that will participate in the IMSA GTP category from the 24 Hours of Daytona 2023 (January 26-29).
