Dragonspeed is still holding out hope of running a Mercedes SLS in the IMSA Rolex 24 race. They are going to run two cars at the IMSA November test at Daytona while IMSA and Mercedes negotiate to find a way to address IMSA’s manufacturer admission/support fees.
Mercedes plans to attend the November test with a factory GT3, but a debut in January at the Rolex 24 still seems unlikely. They have interest but no public news of US teams who have actually ordered cars.
With so much interest and so much to gain by having MBZ in IMSA grids, we hope that the parties find a way to get it done.
