eEuroparts Racing has added a second Audi R8 LMS GT4 car to its lineup, expanding to a five-car full-season IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge operation.

Gunnar Jeannette and Rodrigo Sales have been confirmed drivers of the No. 8 Audi GT4, which will debut in next weekend’s four-hour season-opener at Daytona.

While it marks road racing veteran Jeannette’s return to Pilot Challenge competition, Sales steps up from a race-winning campaign in TCR last year, also at the wheel of an Audi.

The duo join the previously announced pairing of Kenton Koch and Tyler Cooke, who will co-drive the No. 2 Audi GT4.

The Connecticut-based team, which made its series debut with a single full-season Audi RS 3 LMS TCR entry last year, previously committed to four total cars between the two categories.

The three Audi TCR entries will be driven by Kieron O’Rourke/Lee Carpenter (No. 10), Ryan Nash/Russell McDonough (No. 12) and Gavin Ernstone/Jon Morley (No. 61).
