Building upon the speed and performance of the Chevrolet powered Prototype Challenge racecars in the season's first and longest event on the high-banks of Daytona International Speedway, the team spent last Saturday testing at Sebring International Raceway. The strength of the private test session on the 17-turn 3.74-mile racetrack sets the expectation high for winning this weekend's endurance event.

Junqueira captured the pole in the team's first outing in the Prototype Challenge class at the famed event in 2012. Junqueira, Ende, Mitchell, Cumming and Hansson all have experience on the historic racetrack including Cumming and Hansson finishing on the podium in 2013. Tagliani took advantage of the test session to formularize himself with the track characteristics to prepare for this weekends event.
