Sportscar 365 Article: Three Cars for LA Honda World at Daytona

January 20, 2019

LA Honda World Racing powered by LAP Motorsports will field three new  Honda Civic Type-R TCRs for the Michelin Pilot Challenge season-opener  at Daytona next weekend.

Former series champion Mike LaMarra and veteran Mat Pombo will  continue with the No. 73 on their new Honda TCR, as the pairing look to  continue the streak of success that culminated with victory last year in  ST class competition.

Tom O’Gorman will team up with Shelby Blackstock, who is returning to  IMSA competition in the No. 37 car, while Max Faulkner and Colin Mullan  will share the No. 52 Honda TCR after battling each other in ST lat  year.

“What a way to celebrate LAP Motorsports’ 10th anniversary,” said  team principal Luis Perocarpi. “To have our road race program competing  at the highest level in the US, in IMSA on their 50th anniversary, it  couldn’t be any more exciting.

“With all the new manufacturers and teams entering the IMSA Michelin  Pilot Challenge TCR championship, it will be the most competitive racing  in the country.

“We have put a significant amount of effort into our transition from  ST to TCR and we have assembled a very strong driver lineup. We know it  won’t be easy but every single team member is ready for the new  challenge.”
