With the lure of the endurance classics at Daytona and Sebring, a European-based prototype team is set to contest the opening rounds of next year’s United SportsCar Racing series.

SPEED.com has learned that Algarve Pro Racing, a Portugal-based squad run by former Jordan F1 testing manager and A1GP Team Ireland chief mechanic Stewart Cox, is finalizing plans to take its Oreca FLM09 Stateside, in what could potentially turn into a full-season effort.
