Volt Racing with Archangel has confirmed an expansion into the IMSA Prototype Challenge. The full season Ligier JS P320 Nissan will sport familiar Volt Lighting colors, with Alan Brynjolfsson slated for driving duties.

It marks the third program component for the St. Louis-based team, following the news of their return to GTD competition as Magnus with Archangel and the continuation of their IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge program with Brynjolfsson. 

“I’m excited to get back to our roots with prototype racing and to see Alan continue to develop as a driver,” said Archangel team principal Mike Johnson.

“The Ligier JS P320 is new to all of us, but Archangel Motorsports has had some success racing prototypes in the past and we’ve proven to be a strong combination with Alan so I like our chances heading into this new challenge.”

Brynjolfsson, who has spent the last four seasons competing in the Pilot Challenge, has a wide range of success racing various types of GT4 machinery.

The common denominator in all of his experience, however, has been his proven ability to adapt.

The Tampa native is prepared to face a new challenge as he makes his debut into prototype racing.

“LMP3 is brand new to me,” said Brynjolfsson. “I love the idea of a new challenge and as of now have a lot to learn, but I’m working hard to do so.

“I’m fortunate to have a very experienced team behind me.

“Mike has won races like Le Mans and the 24 Hours of Daytona in prototypes many times, so I’m going to try to learn as much as I can from them.

“I’m glad we kept this whole team together; it’s going to be a busy and exciting year.”
