2016 is going to be a thrilling year. I am really proud and honoured to be part of the Ford Chip Ganassi Racing family. We are racing in the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship and in Le Mans, official invitation from the ACO is still to receive. Racing under Chip Ganassi and Ford Performance is something really special and driving the new Ford GT #66, 50 years after the first Le Mans victory of the Ford GT 40, in the IWSC and in Le Mans makes me proud and happy.
