Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America class race winner Sheena Monk will test with RENNtech Motorsports in this weekend’s Roar Before the 24 at Daytona, ahead of a likely drive in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge season-opener.

Monk will share driving duties of the No. 90 Mercedes-AMG GT4 with Corey Lewis, marking her first time at the wheel of the German-built GT4 contender.

Having competed in the LB Cup and Am classes in Super Trofeo, Monk is coming off a solid end-of-year run in the single-make series after returning to racing following a serious accident at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in 2018.

“Last year was tough for me because I elected to race despite still being injured, but towards the end of the season, my performance was strong, and I showed great pace in the World Final Super Trofeo races,” Monk said.

“The Roar is a great opportunity for me to get familiar with both the AMG GT4 and the Team, and I am confident that we will be very competitive in the No. 90 RENNtech Motorsports AMG GT4.”

The Florida-based team contested multiple Pirelli GT4 America races last year although has yet to announce its full 2020 program.

“Daytona is a legendary track and we are pleased to be part of the Roar,” said team owner Hartmut Feyhl.

“This will be an important test for us, and we want to get a great start to the 2020 season as we prepare for the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge.

“I know the whole team is excited to start the season at Daytona and to have Sheena bring her experience and determination to the mix.”
