California-based The Racers Group will be on the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship grid next season, running a Porsche 911 GT3 R in the GT Daytona class.

Team owner Kevin Buckler said: “We are proud to announce that we are back with Porsche as our premier brand running in the 2017 IMSA WeatherTech Championship.

“It feels right. We are currently in talks with multiple sponsor partners, drivers, and are working on a second car and program.

“The entire team at IMSA has just done an amazing job building this motorsports platform. I’ve been beating the GT drum for 25 years and was with them in the beginning, and it has not been easy.

“I’m pleased and honored to be part of their history and heritage and now we’re back running full-time in WeatherTech.

“The Porsche support program has been second to none over all these years and it will be nice to have them by our side once again.”

Porsche Motorsport North America President Jens Walther added: “All of us at Porsche Motorsport North America are looking forward to seeing a new 911 GT3 R in the traditional TRG livery once again.

“Kevin and his team have been responsible for many Porsche GT victories over the years, including an overall Rolex 24 victory in 2003. We warmly welcome him back to the Porsche family.”
