IMSA Michelin Challenge- Prémat is impressive in his maiden TCR run

08.01.2020: Alexandre Prémat was impressive in his maiden TCR appearance, during the IMSA Michelin Challenge test at Daytona. The Frenchman posted the third fastest lap of 1:59.938 at the wheel of an Audi RS 3 LMS run by his own Team Prémat.

Alexandre Prémat was impressive in his maiden TCR appearance, during the IMSA Michelin Challenge test at Daytona. The Frenchman posted the third fastest lap of 1:59.938 at the wheel of an Audi RS 3 LMS run by his own Team Prémat.



At the age of 37, Prémat is switching to Touring Car after a successful career in formula and sports cars that produced titles in the Le Mans Series (2008), the A1 GP (2006) and the French Formula Renault Championship (2002), plus victories in the 2004 Formula 3 Masters and Macau GP.



The #98 Bryan Herta Autosport Hyundai Veloster N, the 2019 champion car in the TCR class of the IMSA Challenge, was only ninth fastest in the Daytona test. Harry Gottsacker completed the car's best lap of 2:00.784 in session 5 and ranked 15th among the drivers.



The fastest of the Honda drivers was Matthew Pombo in one of the three Civic Type R cars entered by LA Honda World Racing; Pombo set the 13th best lap of 2:00.737.
