HART, the Honda of America Racing Team, has confirmed that it will take part in next weekend’s IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge season-opener at Daytona International Speedway with a revised lineup for its Honda Civic Type-R TCR car.

Having contested the majority of the 2019 season with Chad Gilsinger and Ryan Eversley, the Ohio-based team, made up of volunteer crew from Honda of America’s factory, is expected to contest a reduced program this year for budget reasons.

Gilsinger will team up with fellow Honda associate Steve Eich and former Rolex 24 at Daytona GT Daytona class winner Cameron Lawrence for the four-hour enduro.

The team was absent from the Roar Before the Rolex 24 pre-season test, which was optional for Pilot Challenge competitors.

Longtime HART driver Eversley, who has remained a Honda Performance Development-contracted driver, has moved over to one of LA Honda World’s TCR entries for the season, meanwhile.
