Ahead of this weekend’s Rolex 24 at Daytona, RWR Eurasia confirms that Sven Müller will replace Mathieu Jaminet within the team.
Having won the 24H of Dubai earlier this month, Mathieu signed to compete at Daytona but subsequently tested positive for COVID-19. Whilst asymptomatic and feeling in good health, he was therefore unable to travel to the USA.
Given the situation, Sven, friend, and factory Porsche teammate has stepped in as a worthy and welcome replacement. The German racer will join the #51 RWR Eurasia squad and drivers Austin Dillon, Cody Ware and Salih Yoluç at Daytona on Wednesday.
“Obviously, I am very disappointed not to be racing in Daytona, but I am in good health and if anybody should get the chance in my absence, my good friend and teammate Sven would be my number one choice,” Mathieu stated. “I will be watching and I’m sure that RWR Eurasia will have a good race.”
