The owner of Wayne Taylor Racing details why IMSA somewhat lacks American drivers
2019 Wayne Taylor Racing drivers for Rolex 24: Jordan Taylor of the United Stated (27), Renger Van Der Zande of Amsterdam (32), Fernando Alonso of Spain (37) and Kamui Kobayashi of Japan (32).
Wayne Taylor Racing are the defending winners of the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona. For 2019, they have four drivers from four different countries in their cockpit.
“Well, I think if you look in North America now you only really have one sportscar series, which is IMSA. So, there’s not a lot of opportunities for American drivers,” team owner Wayne Taylor explained to the media.
“There’s a ton of European drivers who run in the WEC’s and Japanese series around the world. Because IMSA has done a good job of getting this race to be so competitive, you’ve really got to find the best of the best.”
