MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – ANSA Motorsports will compete in the IMSA Prototype Challenge presented by Mazda next year with an ADESS-03 in the LMP3 class with Matt Dicken at the wheel.
ANSA Motorsports and ADESS AG are still looking to test additional drivers and ADESS AG is looking to sell more prototypes to new teams/drivers.
“My partner, Patrick Otto Madsen, and I are delighted to welcome our new driver, Matt Dicken, who will compete in one of our 2017 ADESS-03 LM P3 prototypes next season in the IMSA Prototype Challenge presented by Mazda series,” said ANSA Motorsports’ co-owner Alain Nadal. “ANSA Motorsports has a solid winning background in the IMSA series, and we are really excited to return and race with ADESS AG in the new, revamped series.”
Dicken was the Stuttgart Cup Pro-Am Champion in 2014 and in addition to his championship season, Dicken also has multiple class wins and podiums in various club-racing programs, such as PCA, HSR and SVRA. In 2015 and 2016 he competed in the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge.
“Words cannot describe how excited I am to be joining ANSA Motorsports for the inaugural 2017 IMSA Prototype Challenge series in an ADESS-03 LM P3 race car,” Dicken said. “Both ANSA and ADESS are proven champions so our expectations are high for a successful season. Although the ADESS-03 LM P3 is a new race car and there are a lot of unknowns coming into a new series, when you take a look at what ANSA Motorsports did last year in winning the PWC GTS Driver’s Championship in with the new KTM X-Bow, race podiums and maybe even race wins should be anticipated.”
