LOUIS, Mo. — Magnus with Archangel has set its lineup for the No. 44 Acura NSX GT3 Evo for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar season.  Sports car racing stalwart Spencer Pumpelly will team with full-season drivers, John Potter and Andy Lally for the four Michelin Endurance Cup rounds, and reigning two-time GTD champion Mario Farnbacher joins the team for the Rolex 24.

No stranger to the IMSA paddock or Magnus Racing, Spencer Pumpelly is back for another go at the Michelin Endurance Cup in the No. 44.

Last season, Pumpelly earn two podiums alongside Lally and Potter at the Rolex 24 and Petit Le Mans. Now taking to the Acura NSX GT3 Evo, the Atlanta native is looking for his third Rolex 24 victory.

Bringing championship winning knowledge to the Magnus with Archangel team, Farnbacher has won the last two GTD-class titles at the wheel of an Acura NSX GT3 Evo, owning an impressive three wins and eight podiums across the two seasons. The German’s Acura expertise will be invaluable to the team as they prepare for what will be Farnbacher’s ninth consecutive Rolex 24.
