Precision Performance Motorsports has signed Lawson Aschenbach for this weekend’s Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.

Aschenbach will join Brandon Gdovic and Don Yount at the wheel of the team’s Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo for the second round of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season.

It comes after the car’s 18th place class finish in January’s Rolex 24 at Daytona, following a challenging series debut for the Rick Gdovic-owned operation.

Aschenbach, a seven-time sports car racing champion, most recently contested the WeatherTech Championship with an Acura NSX GT3 entered by Meyer Shank Racing last year.

“It’s great to be back in the saddle again at the Twelve Hours of Sebring,” said Aschenbach.

“I feel the Lamborghini Huracan will be a great platform for one of the toughest races in North America. This isn’t an endurance race anymore, it’s a twelve-hour sprint to the finish.

“Although fairly new to the WeatherTech Championship, I’m very confident in PPM. I want to thank Richard Gdovic and Sunny Voelker for the opportunity and I’m looking forward to working with Brandon and Don.”

Team manager Sunny Voekler added: “We are looking forward to getting our PPM Lamborghini back on track after our telling GTD debut at the Rolex 24.

“We feel good about moving on to Sebring with all the nuances we learned from Daytona. I’m excited about our driver lineup as well.

“Brandon Gdovic has been working hard, testing and preparing, and is more than ready to make his first start of the year.

“Don ran strong and consistent for us at Daytona and will be back for all the NAEC races, and we’re throwing in the speed and experience of Lawson Aschenbach.

“The entire PPM organization is ready for whatever challenges Sebring throws at us.”
