The Heart of Racing To Sit-Out Daytona

Tuesday, June 23, 2020

Disappointing news from the Heart of Racing team today concerning their now non attendance at the resumption of the IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship from Daytona early next month with their Aston Martin racing V8 Vantage GTD.

Todays press release reads-

The Heart of Racing team will sit out the first race of the rescheduled 2020 season at Daytona. “As a team, we are very fortunate to not have any external commercial pressures factoring in our decision-making process on when we go back racing. We are racers to the core and want to be out there competing, but we have decided on a conservative approach to going back”, said Ian James, Team Principal. “Our team owners are incredibly supportive and team well-being is priority number one.

“From what I know IMSA are doing everything possible to make sure that the conditions will be safe for all involved and I am sure we will be back in the paddock in the near future.

The Heart of Racing team wishes all teams competing at Daytona, a safe and exciting race weekend.
