DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The livery for the new Wayne Taylor Racing No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R made its debut on Monday morning.
The car will be raced for the first time Jan. 28-29 by brothers Ricky and Jordan Taylor, Max Angelelli and four-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon at the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season-opening Rolex 24 At Daytona Int’l Speedway.
The new prototype has already hit the test track in private sessions for the Wayne Taylor Racing team at Putnam Park near Indianapolis, NCM Motorsports Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Watkins Glen (N.Y.) Int’l and the Charlotte Motor Speedway road course.
Following this week’s two-day test, the No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R Rolex 24 preparation effort continues at Daytona during the annual Roar Before the 24 Test Days Jan. 6 to 8.
“Well, first of all, I must say I am most excited to be back with Cadillac after campaigning the company’s Le Mans Prototypes from 2000 to 2002, and I feel like there’s some unfinished business there,” said team owner Wayne Taylor. “This new Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R is a truly spectacular Cadillac racecar built by Dallara, and I’m really impressed with what I’ve seen so far on the track. It’s a car I really feel like we can go out and win a championship with, so perhaps we can go out and take care of that unfinished business sooner than later.”
