NTE Sport has withdrawn its GTD class entry from this weekend’s Lexus Grand Prix at Mid-Ohio, citing funding issues specific to the event.

Confirmed by a team spokesperson on Tuesday, the Jaden Conwright and Corey Lewis-driven Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo will not take part in the fifth round of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season, bringing the total entry down to 33 cars for Sunday’s two-hour and 40-minute race.

According to a statement, the Texas-based team was “not able to secure sufficient funding” specific to Mid-Ohio and still intends to participate in “future 2022 IMSA events” although details on which races have yet to be confirmed.

The team was slated to contest the full WeatherTech Championship season although missed the Long Beach race due to a tire blowout on its transporter en route to California.

It returned to action at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca last month, with Conwright qualifying second in class and finishing sixth alongside co-driver Marco Holzer.

NTE/SSR is the second season-long GTD entrant to not be at Mid-Ohio, with the Hardpoint Porsche 911 GT3 R of Rob Ferriol and Katherine Legge also not taking part, with the team yet to make an official statement regarding its future in the class.
