Alex Tagliani has been suspended for one race and placed on probation for an additional TUDOR United SportsCar Championship round following an accident in practice for last weekend’s Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen.

The veteran open-wheel and sports car driver spun his No. 08 RSR Racing Oreca FLM09 in Saturday’s second practice session and re-entered the track in Turn 10 in front of an oncoming Chris Miller in the No. 85 JDC-Miller Motorsports car.

“It’s not every day that a driver has the chance to drive a red Ferrari in racing, and doing it for R.Ferri/AIM Motorsport means even more,” Tagliani said. “I have a great respect for Ian as an engineer and Andrew, whom I raced against. They have been long-time friends on and off track. Driving Remo’s car is a great opportunity and an honor for a Canadian-born driver with Italian heritage. Remo is such a passionate guy for motorsports and I can already feel a great vibe in this team.”
