Stevenson Motorsports Driver Lineup Finalized for Rolex 24 At Daytona
After a productive three-day test at Daytona International Speedway with the team’s new Audi R8 LMS, the Stevenson Motorsports driver lineup has been finalized for the 2016 Rolex 24 At Daytona.
Tristan Vautier and Dion von Moltke will co-drive the No. 9 Sun Energy-1 Audi R8 LMS with previously confirmed drivers Boris Said and Kenny Habul.
The annual Roar before the 24 test days marked the first laps for Stevenson Motorsports in their twin Audi R8 LMS machines, and adding a brand new driver lineup in the No. 9 car only served to highlight the strength of the team as the they made the most of the three-day test weekend.
“It was amazing to have the chance to test with Stevenson Motorsports and be confirmed for the race,” said Vautier who brings a wealth of racing experience ranging from IndyCar to the European Blancpain GT series. “I am very happy and grateful for this chance. The car is really good, I really like the Audi R8 LMS. I am very confident about Stevenson Motorsports and their abilities. With all of their experience and everything they have achieved, they are an amazing team to be able to work with for this famous race. We also have a really solid driver lineup, everyone is fast and Kenny (Habul) has been very impressive considering it’s his first experience in a GT3, especially around Daytona, so it has been a really great experience.”
