Magnus Racing has switched to an Aston Martin Vantage GT3 for its planned IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup effort next year.

The John Potter-owned team confirmed Tuesday that it will be “getting the band back together” with a program understood to be independently run after previous operational support from Archangel Motorsports and Grasser Racing Team in 2021 and 2020, respectively. 

As previously reported by Sportscar365, Magnus and the Mike Johnson-led Archangel squad had split following the conclusion of last month’s season-ending Motul Petit Le Mans.

The move to Aston marks Magnus’ fourth different GT3 model in the last five years in the GT Daytona class of the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

While its 2022 program was not formally announced, Sportscar365 understands it will likely be limited to the Endurance Cup races only.

Potter has been joined by longtime co-drivers Andy Lally and Spencer Pumpelly for a two-day test at Daytona International Speedway that kicked off on Tuesday.
