Magnus Racing will return to the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship with an unchanged program, the team announced Wednesday.

John Potter and Andy Lally will continue to co-drive the No. 44 Porsche 911 GT America in the GT Daytona class, with the team’s additional drivers for the endurance rounds to be confirmed at a later date.

“We know it’s going to shock everyone, but we’re going to run the exact same program,” team owner/driver Potter said. “We’re actually very excited about it.

“Everyone at IMSA and the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship has hopefully learned a lot from their debut season, and that will only help the coming year.

“This will be the final year of our category in its current form and we’re excited to see it out with Porsche and the GT America, which was developed specifically for this platform.

“Ever since Magnus was formed in 2010, it has been an exclusively Porsche team, and we’re proud of that affiliation.”

Lally will return to the team for his fourth consecutive season and will be looking to defend their class victory at the Twelve Hours of Sebring.

“I’m extremely fortunate to have had the career I’ve had, and entering a fourth year with the team will only better our chances,” he said.

“The chemistry and dynamic within our group is unlike any other, and they prove that week in and week out. It’s going to be a tough season ahead of us, but I’m confident we can compete and we’re all hungry for a championship.”
