TRACE, the Transient RApid Classification Experiment (PI: Inserra, ATel #10055), reports the following supernova classification. The target was supplied by ATLAS survey, see Tonry et al. (2011, PASP, 123, 58) and Tonry et al. (ATel #8680). All observations were performed on the Liverpool Telescope at Roque de Los Muchachos on 2017 February 18, using SPRAT and Red Grism (4000-8000A, 18A resolution). Classification was done with SNID (Blondin & Tonry, 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024) and GELATO (Harutyunyan et al., 2008, A&A, 488, 383). Classification spectrum and additional details can be obtained from the IAU Transient Name Server.
