Ryan Eversley has been confirmed as returning to the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge in 2022, although only for a part-season campaign with LA Honda World Racing.
The 38-year-old has only missed one race in the past three seasons and ended last year with his best overall ranking in the series with fourth, having claimed one win at Watkins Glen.
Eversley will team up with Mike LaMarra for the first time in the team, which has parted ways with preparation firm LAP Motorsports in favour of bringing its operation in-house.
“I’m looking forward to getting back behind the wheel of the L.A. Honda Civic Type-R this year in IMSA,” said Eversley.
“We had a fun year in 2020 and last year I was coaching for L.A. Honda World Racing in another series, so we already have a strong team bond to start the season.
“Mike LaMarra and I have been competing against each other for over a decade, so it’s cool to finally get to share a race car with him!
“I’m confident we’ll be fighting for the podium at Daytona and I’m really proud to be representing Honda in TCR once again.”
LaMarra has yet to contest a full season in the category, although he completed six races in both 2019 and 2020, his most extensive seasons to-date.
LaMarra, 54, won at Watkins Glen in 2019 with LA Honda World. Last year, he contested the opening three meetings, securing a best result of second at Sebring.
“I am very excited to re-join the L.A. Honda World Racing team to kick off the 2022 Michelin Pilot Challenge at Daytona,” said LaMarra.
“What a privilege it will be to share the Honda Civic Type R TCR with Ryan Eversley.
“It is also great to be back in the IMSA paddock. I love driving the Honda and look forward to working with Ryan and the entire L.A. Honda World crew to help deliver competitive results!”
