Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest electronic components and industrial automation products, proudly announces its continued associate sponsorship of the Vasser Sullivan Lexus racing team for the 2024 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship Series.
Mouser again is partnering with valued manufacturer partner Molex to sponsor the No. 14 Vasser Sullivan Lexus RC F GT3 GTD PRO and the No. 12 Vasser Sullivan Lexus RC F GT3 GTD Class entries for the 2024 IMSA season. The season begins January 19-21 with the Roar Before the Rolex at Daytona International Speedway in Florida, followed by the 2024 Rolex 24 at Daytona, January 27-28.
The 2024 season marks the sixth season Lexus and Vasser Sullivan have partnered together. The No. 14 Vasser Sullivan Lexus entry will be piloted by drivers Jack Hawksworth and Ben Barnicoat, while Parker Thompson and Frankie Montecalvo will pilot the No. 12 entry. Kyle Kirkwood and Aaron Telitz join the driver pairs in the No. 14 and 12 cars for select IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship endurance races this season, and will be joined by Mike Conway (No. 14) and Ritomo Miyata (No. 12) at the Rolex 24 at Daytona.
“For over a decade now, we’ve been avid supporters of high-performance motorsports, and we are extremely proud to extend our support of Vasser Sullivan Lexus Racing in the 2024 IMSA series,” said Todd McAtee, Senior Vice President, Business Development for Mouser Electronics. “This team is truly outstanding, and together with Molex, Mouser is honored to be part of their first-class racing program.”
The Vasser Sullivan Lexus Racing team will look to continue the momentum of last year, where they finished the season in first place, winning the GTD Pro Manufacturers Championship with 3,760 points. Drivers Ben Barnicoat and Jack Hawksworth also won the GTD PRO Drivers title and the GTD PRO Team championship.
Mouser previously sponsored the Vasser Sullivan IndyCar team, seeing the opportunity as an inventive way to communicate its performance-driven business model and promote the newest technologies. Since then, the Mouser and Molex relationship with Vasser Sullivan has resulted in many successes, winning the Indianapolis 500 in 2013 and producing multiple wins and podiums with Vasser Sullivan IndyCar and now Vasser Sullivan Lexus Racing.
