Magnus reveals 2020 livery, adds Mapelli for Daytona
A new-look GRT Magnus operation has revealed its livery for the 2020 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season and finalised its lineup for the Rolex 24 at Daytona.
Last month, the popular GT Daytona team firmed up plans to return to IMSA in 2020 as part of a new alliance with Lamborghini squad Grasser Racing after campaigning a Huracan GT3 Evo for the first time during the 2019 campaign.
Team owner John Potter will again partner Andy Lally for the full season, joined by Spencer Pumpelly for the four Michelin Endurance Cup rounds.
On Tuesday, the team's livery was unveiled along with primary sponsor Flex-Box and Lamborghini factory driver Marco Mapelli, who again joins the Magnus lineup for Daytona.

It will mark a third Rolex 24 appearance for the Italian, who took both of last year's Blancpain GT Series titles alongside Andrea Caldarelli. He made his Daytona debut in 2017 in a Konrad Motorsport Lamborghini before joining Magnus for the 2019 race.
GEAR Racing livery breaks cover
The other Grasser Racing-supported full-season IMSA entry, that of GEAR Racing, has also revealed a distinctive livery ahead of this week's Roar Before the 24 test.
Katherine Legge, Christina Nielsen, Ana Beatriz and Tatiana Calderon have been announced as drivers for the team at Daytona, although former DTM driver Rahel Frey was listed on the entry list for the Roar test in place of Beatriz.
