Muehlner to field two LMP3s for the Rolex 24
Florida-based Muehlner Motorsports will field two LMP3 appearances later this month at the Rolex 24 At Daytona.
In a WeatherTech SportsCar Championship class dominated by the Ligier chassis, Bernhard Muehlner’s pair of Duqueine D08 LMP3 will add variety to the pro-am class while helping the team owner reach a milestone by competing in his 48e 24 hour endurance race.
The # 6 Duqueine D08, pole and podium at Rolex 24 last year, features the return of Moritz Kranz and newcomers Efrin Castro, Ayrton Ori, Joel Miller.
âI’m really looking forward to the 60th edition of the Rolex 24 at Daytona International Speedway,â said Kranz. “I have no doubt that Bernhard and the whole team at Muehlner Motorsports America will give us the drivers a competitive Duqueine D08 LMP3, which will allow us to fight for the win and could add another victory to our fruitful cooperation.”
Entry # 26 features Nolan Siegel, Cameron Shields, Charles Crews and Ugo De Wilde.
âI am very happy to join Muehlner Motorsports for the Rolex 24,â said Siegel, 17, who finished eighth in the 2021 USF2000 championship. âThis will be my first time competing in the race and I’m happy it’s with such an experienced group of people and great co-drivers. It will be a challenge, but we’re here to win it and I can’t wait to be on the right track!
The Rolex 24 kicks off with the Roar Before The 24 test at Daytona, which runs from January 21 to 23. Track action for the Rolex 24 begins on January 27, pole positions for all five categories will be established on January 28, and the race runs from January 29 to 30.
