‘Spike’ unveiled by AO Racing ahead of 2024 IMSA Campaign

Illinois-based AO Racing has unveiled its LMP2 livery ahead of the 2024 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season. The #99 ORECA 07, to be driven by PJ Hyett, Paul-Loup Chatin, Matthew Brabham and Alex Quinn, features a striking purple-and-orange colour scheme. The team, led by Gunnar Jeannette and PJ Hyett, is building on the success of its ‘Rexy’ livery, displayed on its 2023 Porsche 911 RSR-19 which became a fan-favourite at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. ‘Rexy’ will also return for 2024.

“After many months of incubation, we are finally ready to hatch Spike to the world of racing,” said Gunnar Jeannette. “Rexy has been such a big hit across the globe in his debut year, that we wanted to give all the fans a dragon to cheer for in LMP2.

“We hope that everyone will give Spike a warm welcome to the IMSA paddock.”

The 2024 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship gets underway with the ‘Roar Before The Rolex 24’ at Daytona International Speedway on January 19th – 21st.
