The race also marks the debut of Mazda Team Joest, a new collaboration that pairs the third-winningest car manufacturer in IMSA racing history with a racing team that has won the Le Mans 24 Hour race 15 times and taken two outright Daytona 24 Hour victories.

Mazda's RT24-P race cars are entered in the Daytona Prototype International category of this multi-class championship, competing for overall wins and championship success across the 10-race season.

British drivers Oliver and Harry will be paired with long-standing American Mazda drivers Jonathan Bomarito and Tristan Nunez, while for the four longest endurance races, the quartet of drivers will be supplemented by IndyCar racer Spencer Pigot and 2017 DTM champion Rene Rast.

Developed for the 2017 season, the Mazda RT24-P race car has a Riley Mk.30 LMP2 chassis clothed in unique Mazda bodywork that features 'KODO: Soul of Motion' design cues to create a dynamic and purposeful look, at the same time as delivering the aerodynamic performance needed for success on track.

Powered by a Mazda MZ-2.0T turbocharged engine developed by British firm Advanced Engine Research, Mazda has also worked with Canadian based Multimatic to develop the chassis.
