This year's Indianapolis 8 Hour Presented by AWS will feature not one but two IndyCar drivers in the GT4 class after Random Vandals Racing revealed Conor Daly as part of its BMW M4 line-up.
The Indy native, who is no stranger to either the Road Coarse or famous oval, joins Al Carter and Paul Sparta in RVR's Pro-Am entry.
A stacked GT4 class also features, amongst others, another IndyCar regular and Brickyard returnee in the form of Pippa Mann who is part of Nolasport's Porsche crew.
Daly, meanwhile, is delighted to be contesting the 8 Hour on a track he's always enjoyed.
"Now that the IndyCar season is over, it will be great to get back in a sportscar in couple of weeks at the IMS road course, which I love," he said. "The Indianapolis 8 Hour was a really great event last year, so I am happy to be back in the Random Vandals BMW for a really cool hometown event that seems to have a lot of momentum."
Daly's RVR team principal and co-driver Sparta added: "We are thrilled to have Conor back in the car with us. Al Carter, Conor, and I have had success in the past in club endurance races, so it’s a great combination to bring back at this level to run what is becoming a very prestigious event. Similarly, any chance you get to take a green flag at IMS is just an honour. I am thrilled for my first run here."
GT4 entries are not eligible to score points counting towards this year's Intercontinental GT Challenge Powered by Pirelli, which is reserved for GT3 manufacturers and drivers. Nevertheless, Indy's multi-class environment provides a popular additional element to a race that also featured both categories last season.
IGTC's second round of the season takes place on October 15-17.
