DragonSpeed will offer technical support to Era Motorsport, a team led by former Grand-Am and IMSA racer Kyle Tilley, in January’s Rolex 24 at Daytona.

The Indianapolis-based squad, which has focused on historic racing and driver development, has announced it will enter an Oreca 07 Gibson in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season-opener.

No further details of the team’s LMP2 entry, including any of its drivers, have been communicated at this stage.

“We’re very excited to confirm that we’ll be joining the IMSA ranks in 2020 for the Rolex 24 At Daytona,” said Tilley, who serves as team principal.

“The men and women at DragonSpeed are top-notch, and their support will be invaluable as we enter such a challenging event.

“Out of respect for all of our partners, we’ll withhold further details of our 2020 program until the final pieces are locked into place.

“We’re excited for what’s ahead and can’t wait for when the time is right to share that information.”

DragonSpeed won the LMP2 class in this year’s edition of the Rolex 24 with an Oreca driven by Roberto Gonzalez, Ryan Cullen, Sebastian Saavedra and Pastor Maldonado (pictured above).

Team principal Elton Julian told Sportscar365 in September that he was targeting a two-car entry at both Daytona and the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring in 2020.
