WTR puts championship-winning Cadillac DPi up for sale

Wayne Taylor Racing would like to sell you a low-mileage Cadillac in October. The reigning IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship title winners in the Prototype category have made the unique decision to put the Cadillac DPi-V.R currently being raced by Jordan Taylor and Renger van der Zande on the market before the chassis has completed the 2018 season.

According to its owner, the car’s provenance and the upcoming move to a new prototype formula in the years ahead made offering the No. 10 Cadillac DPi-V.R to interested buyers a worthy proposition.

“I figured the time was right with changes coming to the Prototype formula at some stage, and with all the success we’ve had with the car – wins at the Rolex 24 at Daytona with Jeff Gordon and Max [Angelelli] and my boys in it, the win at Sebring and Long Beach – and all the others that allowed us to win the first championship for the Cadillac DPi, now was the time,” Taylor told RACER.

Provided it sells at its undisclosed price tag, WTR has a second chassis on hand to replace the current chassis.

“We have access to a [new] spare chassis if it sells, which I hope it does,” Taylor added. “I would rather someone have the car after the season, while it’s still relatively new, and very relevant, than hold onto it and sell it once it’s no longer considered a front-running car.”
