CHARLOTTE, North Carolina – Toyota Racing Development President and General Manager David Wilson was escorted from IMSA headquarters and flown back to TRD headquarters with Lexus also being kicked out of the series for suggesting IMSA take a simple approach to regulations for GTD Pro vs GTD starting in 2022. “Mr. Wilson’s and Lexus’ actions were uncalled for, unprofessional, and go against everything we stand for in sportscar racing and IMSA,” said IMSA President John Doonan, “The fact they would even suggest simplicity is treasonous so Lexus is gone effective immediately.”

We will be keeping their $1,000,000 manufacturer fee, though.”
