IMSA Michelin Challenge - Copeland Motorsports confirm 2021 campaign

25.11.2020: Following a successful maiden season in TCR that brought in the TC America title with eleven race wins from 16, Copeland Motorsports and Tyler Maxson will join the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge in 2021.

Following a successful maiden season in TCR that brought in the TC America title with eleven race wins from 16, Copeland Motorsports and Tyler Maxson will join the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge in 2021.



The team led by veteran racer Dean Copeland made a couple of appearances in the series this year, at Road Atlanta and Sebring with Maxson sharing driving duties in the Hyundai Veloster N with Tyler Gonzalez.



They are both 16-year-old, they have the same first name, and have been nicknamed… T’n’T.



"The main thing with these kids is they both like the same characteristics in a race car," Copeland said. "It makes my job easy and makes for a winning duo. The seating position is the same and they both like the car to handle the same. They have the same driving style."



At their Road Atlanta debut, Gonzalez started sixth and worked the Hyundai into contention. During Maxson’s stint, he took the lead late in the race before settling for a runner-up finish close behind the Bryan Herta Autosport Hyundai of Michael Lewis and Mason Filippi.



The team’s plan for a full season effort in 2021 includes the possibility to enter a second car in some selected races.
