After sporadic sports car appearances over the last few years, Australian James Davison will have a full-time ride in the 2014 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship season.
Davison will be the pro driver in one of TRG’s Aston Martin Vantages in the GT Daytona class, which marks his first full-time ride of any sort since finishing second in the 2009 Firestone Indy Lights Series. Davison tested the Aston at Sebring earlier this month, and raced for TRG in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge at the season finale at Lime Rock Park earlier this year.
This seems to close the door to Davison running a full-time schedule in the IndyCar ranks, although he impressed in two starts with Dale Coyne Racing earlier in 2013. Davison may still run in the month of May, telling Australia’s speedcafe.com that he has an offer on the table for a debut in the 2014 Indianapolis 500.
