Riley Motorsports has confirmed its plans to enter a pair of Mercedes-AMG race cars into the Michelin IMSA SportsCar Encore at Sebring International Raceway. The four-hour endurance race will feature LMP3, GT3, GT4 and TCR race cars competing for purse money and Michelin tire credits for the 2020 season.

Riley Motorsports currently fields Mercedes-AMG race cars in both the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship GT Daytona (GTD) class, as well as the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge Grand Sport (GS) class.

“Right now, we’re going to enter the Encore with the No. 74 Mercedes-AMG GT3 car,” said team owner, Bill Riley. “We think it’ll be a good way for us to start getting ready for the 2020 season.

“The second entry we have, we’re working on that right now – on what class we’re going to enter. It’ll be with an AMG, and we don’t know if it’ll be a GT3 or GT4 car, so we’re working on getting that entry secured also.”
