This weekend will be the team's first race with the JaguarRSR XKR GT on the 1.968-mile, 11-turn temporary street course, but it won’t be their first time there.
The car will be driven by Paul Gentilozzi and Ryan Dalziel. There is limited track time before the race takes the green flag on Saturday afternoon. There will be two practice sessions totaling in two hours and 30 minutes before the #75 JaguarRSR XKR GT will qualify on Friday afternoon. The one hour and 40 minute Tequila Patrón American Le Mans Series at Long Beach will kick off on April 17.
“I am so excited about going back to Long Beach to race the Jaguar RSR XKR GT2. I remember like it was yesterday, my first race in America was there back in 2002, driving in Formula Atlantics,” Ryan Dalziel, co-driver of the #75 JaguarRSR XKR GT said in a release.
"The guys have been working very hard to resolve any issues we discovered in Sebring and move forward getting the #75 JaguarRSR XKR GT ready for the streets of Long Beach. We are going to have to take advantage of every on-track second we have, because there is not a lot of that available this weekend before the race. But we will focus every effort into getting the car setup ready so we can have a good race on Saturday,” added Paul Gentilozzi, co-driver of the #75 JaguarRSR XKR GT.
