JDC Motorsports will enter Robillard Racing’s Duqueine D08 Nissan in IMSA Prototype Challenge this year, joining the Minnesota-based team’s second LMP3 entry that will run under the AL Autosport banner.
Joe Robillard will again be joined by long-time co-driver Stevan McAleer in the No. 43 entry beginning with this month’s season-opener at Daytona International Speedway.
“We are looking forward to partner with Joe and Stevan for the 2022 IMSA Prototype Challenge Championship,” said JDC Motorsports managing partner John Church.
“Steven is a proven race winner and he and Joe scored several podiums in the past, so for sure they will be candidate for podiums and race wins every weekend and hopefully will have a run at the championship in 2022.
“They know the car, tracks and have raced together for quite some time now so the consistency they bring to the program will be a big plus in 2022.”
Robillard added: “Stevan and I are excited to join efforts with JDC Motorsports. Their experience and expertise will give us a great shot at success. Stevan brings his amazing driving and I bring enthusiasm. With JDC, we should have some good results in 2022.”
McAleer says he feels like they have some “unfinished business” in IPC after finishing the 2021 season fifth in the LMP3 championship.
“I am looking forward to having another shot at the title with Joe and the JDC team,” he said. “Certainly we made some big changes for 2022 and I am delighted to see Robillard Racing join JDC Motorsports for this 2022 season.
“Their mass of prototype experience, class wins and podiums in pretty much every IMSA championship and class they have and are competing in, including overall wins in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship Series, this is a great fit for us to get that little extra speed that I feel we have been missing at times in the last couple of seasons.”
