No. 45 DEX Imaging Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2 Team Seeking More Sprint Race Success Heading to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park

BOWMANVILLE, Ontario, Canada (July 9, 2024) – The Wayne Taylor Racing with Andretti (WTRAndretti) No. 45 DEX Imaging Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2 team will head north to tackle Canadian Tire Motorsport Park for the Chevrolet Grand Prix as the team looks to continue their momentum in the sprint portion of the 2024 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

Danny Formal and Kyle Marcelli will take on the first and only international race on the calendar with the event representing Marcelli’s home race. The duo of Formal and Marcelli have seen success across the sprint races with two top-six GTD finishes and a class pole position from the streets of Long Beach and WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.

“I’m excited to see Kyle and Danny will be waving the flag for WTRAndretti and DEX Imaging at this weekend’s sprint race,” said Wayne Taylor, Team Principal, WTRAndretti. “The team will have a lot of focus on them, especially with it only being GTD at this event. I have a lot of faith in this team and both drivers. I’m looking forward to seeing how they do, and we should at least get a podium.”

The No. 45 DEX Imaging Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2 team will have its first laps on track on Friday, July 12 at 1:45 p.m. ET for practice, with qualifying following on Saturday, July 13 at 4:00 p.m. ET for the 15-minute session. The Chevrolet Grand Prix from Canadian Tire Motorsport Park will begin on Sunday, July 14 at 11:05 a.m. ET, with coverage of the two-hour and 40-minute sprint event on USA Network and Peacock.

Kyle Marcelli: “CTMP is a circuit like none other. It’s the highest average speed race track that we visit on the schedule. To be fast requires confidence in your race car, and high commitment at corner entry. The race itself is fast paced and takes a tremendous amount of mental strength and focus, there is no rest. The Lamborghini has proven to be good in the high-speed corners and for that reason it should suit the circuit nicely. Our race ability has proven to be our biggest challenge, so a good qualifying and green flag race is what we need for a good finish result.”

Danny Formal: “I’m super excited to get back to the sprint format in Mosport, I haven’t been there since 2021 where I participated in the LMP3 challenge. It’s a very high risk, high reward race track. Very high speed with only one slow corner in the whole place – I think it would be second gear corner, the rest is third, fourth, fifth and six gear, so super excited to get back there. Super grateful to be part of this program of WTRAndretti and the No. 45 DEX Imaging Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2 team. Happy to go to my teammate’s home in Canada. This track is close to Toronto and that’s where Kyle is from, so excited to see all his family and all his fans. Hopefully we can give them a good show and we can put the car on the podium as a team deserves it. They’ve been working extra time, and they truly deserve it. Excited to get going on second half of the season. The only way is up.”
