Mario Farnbacher is participating in the coming 2021 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship again. Together with teammate Jeff Kingsley, the 28-year-old Franconian will be driving Compass Racing’s Acura NSX GT3 Evo in the IMSA WeatherTech Sprint Cup. First race is scheduled for 16 May in Mid-Ohio.   
        
    
 
Mario Farnbacher:
  “I’m really looking forward to the new challenge and working with the team. And I’m incredibly proud to be a part of the Acura family again. Many thanks go to the team and of course Acura and HPD, for making this possible.”     


 
    
The HPD works driver will be contributing his expertise to the cooperation with Compass Racing. The Canadian team will be competing with an Acura NSX GT3 Evo for the first time in 2021 – in the Sprint Cup of the American sports car series as well as the GT World Challenge America.
    
        
    
 

 

Mario Farnbacher:


“It’ll be the team’s debut season with the car, but they have a lot of GT experience. We’ve tied up a fantastic package and I’m convinced we can secure more victories and podiums for Acura together."     


    

    
First joint appearance on the Mid-Ohio track will be on 14 to 16 May, when the season’s first race under the Sprint Cup flag takes place. The "2021 Acura Sports Car Challenge Presented by the TLX Type S" can be watched online. The official live stream and live timing services are available on the official website free of charge.
