Stevan McAleer has replaced Katherine Legge in Gradient Racing’s Acura NSX GT3 Evo22 for the remainder of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season.

Announced on Wednesday, McAleer, who was part of the No. 66 Acura’s lineup for the Rolex 24 at Daytona, will team up with Sheena Monk for the rest of the GTD season beginning with next weekend’s Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach.

A reason for Legge’s departure from the team has not been communicated.

“After the thoroughly great experience I had with the team in Daytona, I was excited to be granted the opportunity to return and run for the rest of the season,” said McAleer.

“This will be my second time competing in the Grand Prix of Long Beach, and I’m looking forward to reconnecting with Gradient Racing. I have known Team Owner Andris Laivins since 2011 through CJ Wilson Racing, and I have won two championships with his programs in 2012 in MX5 Cup and in 2015 in IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge.”

McAleer finished third in the GTD standings in 2022, at the wheel of Team Korthoff Motorsports’ Mercedes-AMG GT3 Evo, in the Scot’s only previous full-season WeatherTech Championship effort.
