Spirit of Daytona’s new Cadillac DPi-V.R has been revealed ahead of this weekend’s Roar Before the 24 at Daytona International Speedway.

The Florida-based squad, which reverts to its previous team name following the end of Visit Florida sponsorship, took delivery of the Dallara-based prototype last month and has been busy preparing the car for the 2018 season.

It is the fourth Cadillac DPi in the Prototype field, joining the pair of Action Express Racing entries and defending champions, Wayne Taylor Racing.

Tristan Vautier and Matt McMurry have been named full-season drivers, with Eddie Cheever III expected to join the duo for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season-opening Rolex 24 at Daytona.
