The team confirmed three of their four drivers later yesterday and the rumor from Endurance Info is that Will Power will finally be making his Rolex 24 debut as the fourth driver, TBA.SunEnergy1 AMG added to GTD as the 61st entry, expected for the whole Endurance Cup as well.

Yeah Cooper MacNeil has done it a few times before too, just haven’t seen it done by a factory before I don’t think. Amateurs make sense because they can throw their money around between two different places if they feel like. BMW are showing a lot of faith in the Great American Hope, should be fun to watch.Ben Keating has done the same thing in P2 and GT cars. Some guys can't get enough.
It’s pretty long in the tooth for sure, has come a long way in development since it first debuted. There’s work going on on a new Lexus/Toyota GT3 car but other than some road car patents discovered in Europe last year it’s been pretty well kept under wraps since they showed the concept last year.
Awesome to keep a BMW in for the enduros though. You don’t have to keep Hull in the car for as much drive time in Pro and Auberlen + Edwards + Spengler are a stout bunch of pros. I’d think the factory stepped up a bit to help them do this.That is indeed ambitious for Turner.
