The No. 21 Conquest Racing Ferrari 296 GT3 will not take part in the second Fanatec GT World Challenge America powered by AWS race of the weekend at Circuit of The Americas following an accident on Saturday.

The Manny Franco and Alessandro Balzan-driven Pro class entry has been withdrawn from the remainder of the event due to damage sustained in a crash between Franco and the No. 94 BimmerWorld BMW M4 GT3 of Chandler Hull in the opening stages of the 90-minute contest.

Hull was handed incident responsibility and will be forced to start from the pit lane, per a bulletin from the stewards.
