Danny Formal and Kyle Marcelli have been confirmed at Wayne Taylor Racing for the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America season, with the championship-winning team having finalized its full driver lineup on Monday.

Formal and Marcelli will co-drive the No. 1 Prestige Performance with WTR Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo in the six-round series that kicks off at Circuit of The Americas next month.

The duo are coming off a successful two-day test at the Texan circuit.

“It’s a dream come true for me,” said Formal. “I have been following Wayne Taylor Racing for the longest time.

“To get an opportunity to race with a prestigious team like them and also represent Prestige Performance is an incredible opportunity. I’m super grateful for this.

“I will give my best starting with our first test until the end of this year. Hopefully we can bring some great results for the team and fight for the championship.”

Reigning IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge Series champion Marcelli, who will be making his Super Trofeo debut, said he’s always admired WTR as a team.

“The team has all the tools and resources a driver needs and I hope extract the most from those resources to deliver the winning results we all want and expect,” he said.

“The Lamborghini Super Trofeo is a new car to me and I look forward to the challenge of learning it’s characteristics. I am grateful for the opportunity and excited to get to work.”

The duo, who will race in the Pro class, join the previously announced entry from Ashton Harrison, who will race solo in the Am class in her No. 25 Harrison Consulting entry, along with 2020 LB Cup champion Randy Sellari, who will also race in Am this year.

“We are excited to get back to what hopes to be a regular season for us all,” said Travis Houge, Vice President and general manager of Wayne Taylor Racing.

“We welcome Danny and Kyle to our group and are delighted to have Ashton and Randy back with us for the season.

“We still have plans to field a fourth car and hope to have news on that shortly. It is going to be a great season!”
