Plattsburgh, NY (January 30, 2019) – Looking to make his sports car debut, current F4 United States Championship Powered by Honda driver Kent Vaccaro is set to join the Alianza – Gilbert Motorsports test program. As a veteran from the open wheel community, Vaccaro is anxious and excited to try his hand behind the wheel of a Norma M30 LMP3 car at the Sebring International Raceway later this month.
“I am really excited to test and learn what the LMP3 car has and experience what it is like,” explained Vaccaro. “I have followed sports car and IMSA racing for quite sometime and have always welcomed the opportunity to compete and drive in the series. Sampling the Alianza – Gilbert Motorsports car, communicating with the crew and engineer, as well as trying out a new brand and compound of tires only heightens my experience and continues the upward trend of gaining knowledge.”
“Alianza – Gilbert Motorsports is committed to developing young talent and the Prototype Challenge is the ideal platform for us to cultivate aspiring talent,” explained Lorne Kelly. “Our goal is to expand to two cars in the very near future, as well as set our driver lineup for the 2020 season early to be able to provide ample preparation time for both team and driver.”
“Kent is a promising young driver whom I’m pleased will be testing with us at Sebring later this month,” added Alianza Motorsports’ Donald Williams. “We are excited to see how he does and to offer him the support and guidance he needs to succeed and amplify his experience going forward.”
Competing with the Momentum Motorsports squad in the F4 United States Championship Powered by Honda, Vaccaro is confirmed for a full season effort as he makes a run at the series title in 2019. One of the hottest drivers in the series in the final six races of 2018, Vaccaro was consistently at the pointy end of the field and often the fastest driver on any given race day.
Vaccaro added, “My primary focus in 2019 is the F4 championship. The Momentum Motorsports program is second to none and that is my outright goal. We have a great relationship within the team and are all striving for one common goal. To have the opportunity to test an LMP3 car is an added bonus for the season and helps prepare me for the future. If I have learned one thing in motorsports it is to try and position yourself with the right people at the right time as well as gain as much experience in several different racing platforms.”
