The Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach ultimately proved to be a disappointing race for both Wayne Taylor Racing with Andretti cars, with results not matching the potential of the Acura ARX-06

Wayne Taylor Racing #10 Acura finishes eighth after tough day at the beach

In the electrified GTP category, the Wayne Taylor Racing with Andretti Global cars faced a tough day. The #40 Acura ARX-06 of Louis Deletraz and Jordan Taylor had an early exit from the race, hitting the wall in Turn 1 just before the halfway mark.

The sister #10 WTRAndretti Acura of Ricky Taylor and Filipe Albuquerque started eighth and recovered from a drive through penalty to finish exactly where they began the race, in eighth.

The 2024 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship remains on the west coast, moving north to the Monterey Peninsula for the Motul Course de Monterey, May 10-12 at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, California.

This was a difficult weekend for the team. On the No. 10 Konica Minolta car side, we were in a position where we could take some risks, but it just didn’t quite work out today. I took some risks that resulted in a penalty, and that was just on me, taking a little bit too much risk. But I think we improved the car throughout the weekend. Coming off of last year we had really high expectations. For whatever reason, when we unloaded, we didn’t have the same performance. The team worked really hard to improve throughout the week, and I think we ended up racing the best car we had all weekend. So, we’re going to keep taking steps forward. We’ll put this result behind us and have a good second third to the season.

Not a great day at the office. We’ll regroup and focus forward. We win as a team and lose as a team. That’s racing. Onwards.
