Anthony Simone and Rodrigo Pflucker will continue with Forty7 Motorsports in the next IMSA Prototype Challenge presented by Mazda round at Barber Motorsports Park, the team has confirmed.

The pairing will return to the wheel of the team’s No. 74 Norma M30 LMP3 car for the April 20-22 event, following a promising debut earlier this month at Sebring, which saw the car qualify on the front row.

A mechanical failure ended Simone and Pflucker’s race early, although the team’s sister No. 47 Norma LMP3 car went onto finish second overall and in the LMP3 class.

The No. 74 car will again be run in association with Alianza Motorsports at Barber.

“With the points lead in both drivers and team championship, Forty7 Motorsports has showcased its cars, crew and drivers as a team to contend with at every event,” said team principal Garrett Kletijan.

“It is most important now to maintain these drivers pairing as I believe they are the strongest in the field.

“I’m very grateful to Alianza and the support from NIKO to further solidify our combined efforts.”

Alianza co-founder Lorne Kelly added: “I couldn’t have written this script when it came to these drivers. Their energy and collaboration together was great to see at Sebring and I can’t wait to see what they produce in Birmingham in April together.

“We are fortunate to be able to collaborate with Forty7 Motorsports in this challenge and look forward to great things together.”
