Horsham, PA., January 2, 2024 – Pit+Paddock will sponsor a new FL5 Civic Type R TCR that will be campaigned by Montreal Motorsports Group in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge series and driven by Daijiro “Dai” Yoshihara and Karl Wittmer.

Yoshihara finished his first full season of professional road racing at all but one new venue for the first time with multiple podiums, two emphatic victories, and only three points shy from earning third in the overall championship. Canadian National Champion and IMSA veteran Wittmer brings experience and familiarity with Honda in harmony with Yoshihara’s accolades.

“IMSA is the premier North American racing series and, in partnership with the capable team at MMG, we look forward to competing with Dai and Karl in the Pit+Paddock FL5 Civic Type R TCR,” adds Daryl Sampson, Vice President of Business Development and Marketing.
