The Flying Lizard Motorsports and Krohn Racing partnership will continue to the next round of the Tequila Patron North American Endurance Cup, the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, in March.

Drivers have not yet been announced for the No. 45 Audi R8 LMS ultra, but given the Krohn connection it would not be a surprise to see Tracy Krohn and Nic Jonsson back once more.

The team will look for a bounce back race with the Audi after a tough Rolex 24 at Daytona, when the quartet of Krohn, Jonsson and Audi Sport customer racing drivers Pierre Kaffer and Christopher Haase finished 20th in the GT Daytona class.

Front splitter damage caused a massive vibration early in the race, while later Haase reported he’d lost second and third gear before the team retired with just four hours remaining in the race.

“It’s really unfortunate that we had to end our 24 Hour early,” said Flying Lizard program manager Darren Law. “The guys did a great job, the car was fast, the drivers were fast and we honestly had a shot at the podium.

“The Daytona 24 is a difficult event, sometimes it goes your way, and sometimes it doesn’t. We’re happy about how we performed in this event and are looking forward to Sebring.”

“Everyone was excellent to work with, and Audi offered incredible support,” Krohn added. “We couldn’t have gotten two better factory drivers to drive with than Pierre and Christopher. It was a difficult race, but now we’re pushing forward to focus our efforts on Sebring.”
