Mercedes-AMG is coming to the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship in 2017.
Mercedes-Benz USA and Mercedes-AMG unveiled their plans on Wednesday morning to join the IMSA WeatherTech Championship. Riley Motorsports will race two Mercedes-AMG GT3 cars in the GT Daytona class.
One of the team’s cars will run as AMG-Team Riley Motorsports, and the other as WeatherTech Racing.
Additional teams are expected to race the Mercedes-AMG GT3 cars as customer teams.
“We are thrilled to see the three-pointed star compete in North America’s premier endurance racing series in 2017,” said Dietmar Exler, president and CEO of Mercedes-Benz USA. “Our Mercedes-AMG GT3 race car has already proven itself in worldwide competition and should quickly become a fan favorite. We are very excited about our prospects for the 2017 racing season.”

On a warm and sunny morning in Burbank, CA, I had the honor to meet and converse with the legendary, Parnelli Jones at book signing at Autobooks.
I’ve been fortunate to meet the man (now 83 and oldest living Indy 500 winner), a couple of times over the years and he has always been kind and willing to sign anything. The occasion was the release of the “Trans-Am Era” by Daniel Lipetz. Also, special thanks to Marc Vaughn, Senior West Coast Editor for Autoweek, for taking the picture for me.
