Recently crowned Rolex 24 at Daytona class winners Era Motorsport has committed to the entire 2021 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, competing in the LMP2 class in the No. 18 Oreca.

Drivers Kyle Tilley and Dwight Merriman will race the seven-round championship and be joined by Ryan Dalziel for the remaining three Michelin Endurance Cup Cup events.

Era becomes the fourth LMP2 team to confirm full-season plans alongside PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports, Tower Motorsport and the newly formed WIN Autosport operation.

“I’m thrilled to be able to announce our full-season effort,” said team owner/driver Tilley. “Our season last year was cut short, but it looks like we’ll certainly be making up for the lost track time in 2021.

“We had a strong run in last year’s Rolex 24 at Daytona, which was our first IMSA race as a team.

“This year, we won, which felt like an incredible feat considering how competitive the field was this year.

“It still hasn’t settled in yet. We had decided before the race that we’d enter the full season, and starting the season off with winning the biggest race of the year is just further motivation to run the entire schedule.”
