It has been a while since we last mentioned the Transformers sponsored race car from Dawson Racing. By way of Racer.com we have learned that it seems that it will be missing out on Rolex 24 for the 2018 IMSA Season-Opener. This is what Ian Dawson had to say as to why exactly it will be missing:
"We've had a few delays, as often happens with a new team, new car, new infrastructure," said Ian Dawson. "Although we would love to commence the season at the Rolex 24 At Daytona, it is also one of the most grueling races in the world. We decided that rather than rush with a new car not yet tested, new drivers, new team, to try to make the Roar Before the 24 test days at Daytona the first week of January and then the race just over two weeks later, we would delay our race start."
Ian Dawson was further on the record of saying that:
"We would like to do a proper testing program in the U.S. with our new Onroak Ligier Gibson LMP2 in January and February, and go into the 12 Hours of Sebring in March with a solid team structure," Dawson added. "This will also allow us to finalize further details with our core partners and best be able to enter the season in a position of strength."

You can see the full article here in any event. Unfortunately it just sounds like the race car has a lot of testing to go to perfect itself. In any case we wish Dawson Racing team the best of luck in their quest and look forward to more future information and when the Transformers car itself will race!

My only question about this article: why is the car not painted like drift or blurr?
