Announced the week of the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans, ANSA Motorsports entered into a partnership with Advanced Design and Engineering Systems Solutions and became the Exclusive Partner of ADESS AG in the United States. Almost two months later, the first ADESS-O3 LMP3 car is about to arrive at ANSA Motorsports’ state-of-the-art race shop in Miami Gardens, Florida, to prepare for its first North American September test. ANSA Motorsports and ADESS AG executives are planning a testing program in South Florida to welcome qualified drivers, team owners and investors to test drive, check and order the ADESS-03 LMP3 for future use in the 2017 IMSA Prototype Challenge series or club racing events. To learn more about the test, contact Emmanuel Lupé via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. ANSA Motorsports’ ADESS-03 LMP3 will be unveiled in Miami and is scheduled to compete in a FARA USA event this fall. Last Friday, Aug. 5, IMSA made an important announcement for the future of the LMP3 in North America. In 2017, the Mazda Prototype Lites Presented by Cooper Tires, where ANSA Motorsports was an active competitor in recent years, will evolve and be rebranded as IMSA Prototype Challenge Presented by Mazda. The sprint-race series will feature two, 45-minute races per event weekend with a two-class format, including Le Mans Prototype 3 (LMP3) race cars in the “PC1” class, and cars that currently race in the Prototype Lites L1 class in the “PC2” class. Any ACO-homologated LMP3 chassis built by six approved constructors, including ADESS AG, will be eligible to compete in the PC1 class, and all PC1 cars will be powered by identical specification Nissan V8 engines.
