2018 is going to be my third year with Ford Chip Ganassi Racing. After winning the 24h of Le Mans in the GTE category in 2016, exactly 50 years after the first victory of the the Ford GT40, and the 24h of Daytona in the GTLM category 2017, I am going to be part of the IWSC and Le Mans program again this year. I am really looking forward and I am proud and honored to be part of the Ford Chip Ganassi Racing family.
