Park Place Motorsports will substitute Porsche mainstay Spencer Pumpelly for Jan Heylen at the Hankook 24 Hours of COTA after Pumpelly was diagnosed with a case of influenza.
Helen joins drivers Alan Brynjolfsson, Richard Heistand and Trent Hindman.
His last appearance on the Park Place Motorsports roster was for the 2016 Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Presented by Advance Auto Parts.
Heylen has raced the 24-hour race twice previously, including with Wright Motorsports in 2018 and QSR Racingschool BMW M235i Racing Cup in 2017.
Heylen enters the race well-practiced, having completed in last weekend’s Michelin IMSA SportsCar Encore, where he finished second in the GT3 Class.
“I am excited to be back with Park Place Motorsports,” Heylen said. “I look forward to driving with Alan, Trent and Richard. I enjoy the 24-hour series, and I love the track in Austin.
“I think this event is the perfect race to end a season with being that it’s a two-part endurance race.
“I’m all the happier to see if we can’t further secure Alan and Park Place Motorsports’ Porsche Cup title.”
