Mouser Electronics has congratulated Vasser Sullivan Lexus Racing team on strong showings at the opening weekends of the 2022 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship at the Daytona (Florida) International Speedway.
Mouser is teaming up with Molex LLC to sponsor both the No. 14 Vasser Sullivan-Lexus RC F GT3 GTD PRO Class and the No. 12 Vasser Sullivan-Lexus RC F GT3 GTD Class entries for the 2022 IMSA season.
Team drivers for the season include Jack Hawksworth, Kyle Kirkwood and Ben Barnicoat in the No. 14 car and Townsend Bell, Richard Heistand, Frank Montecalvo and Aaron Telitz in the No. 12 car.
The season’s racing started with the Roar Before the Rolex 24, which ended with the qualifying race for the following weekend’s official season opener at the Rolex 24 at Daytona. The No. 14 car came in fourth in the Pro class, leading the pack for several laps throughout the race.
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 bred success, having won the Indianapolis 500 and producing multiple wins and podiums with Vasser Sullivan IndyCar.
The 2022 season will mark the fourth season Lexus and Vasser Sullivan have partnered together. During that time, the Lexus RC F GT3 has earned seven GTD class wins, 18 podiums and nine pole positions.
The team will compete next at the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring in Florida, March 16–19, followed by the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach (California), April 8–9, and eight more races before the finale at Motul Petit Le Mans, September 28–October 1 in Atlanta.
