***Andy Lally is seeking a new ride for the 2015 Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge season. Lally posted the message on social media on Saturday. He drove in 2014 with Stevenson Motorsports, in one of the team’s new Camaro Z/28.Rs, co-driving with Matt Bell.

***Wayne Taylor Racing has opted for a three-driver lineup for the Rolex 24, with team boss Wayne Taylor confirming to Sportscar365 that Max Angelelli will return to partner brothers Ricky and Jordan Taylor. Wayne completed the lineup in the team’s four-driver Corvette DP effort in 2014.

***Irish Mike’s Racing is selling its three Hyundai Genesis coupes, which ran in CTSC ST this past season. Trans-Am T2 class champion Cameron Lawrence, among others, drove for the team this year.

***TRG-AMR is expected to confirm the third driver for its No. 007 Aston Martin Vantage GT3 shortly. Contrary to the team’s initial announcement, team principal Kevin Buckler confirmed to Sportscar365 that Christoffer Nygaard will only be part of the lineup for the Rolex 24.

***Confirmation on two further GTD driver lineups for the TUDOR Championship season are not expected to be made until next week. An IMSA spokesperson confirmed the entry list for the Roar Before the Rolex 24 will not be released until the week of Jan. 6, with on-track activities set to begin on Jan. 9.
