Level 5 Motorsports looks set to quit the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship despite a winning start to the 2014 campaign at Daytona.

Scott Tucker's team took honours in the GT Daytona class of the Rolex 24 after a late penalty given to Alessandro Pier Guidi - which had handed victory to rivals Flying Lizard Motorsports - was overturned.

The team is now set to leave the new unified championship however, with the American website RACER reporting that the decision has been taken to quit the series before the Sebring 12 Hours.

Townsend Bell and Bill Sweedler - part of the team's planned full-season assault with its Ferrari 458 GT3 machines - could now switch to AIM Autosport for the remainder of the year.

"Scott Tucker gave me the authority to choose where we race this year, and I'm not here to throw stones, but I decided it's not in Level 5's best interest to move forward this season in the TUDOR Championship," Level 5 team manager David Stone told RACER.

"We'll run some cars in the Ferrari Challenge series and have been approached by some people to run in the Pirelli World Challenge series, so we'll look at that; and there are numerous manufacturers that are building LMP2 coupes and that's a possibility.

"We're looking at all avenues for the team to go forward."
