WTR announces third driver

Konica Minolta Wayne Taylor Racing have confirmed their drivers for the final two rounds of the Michelin Endurance Cup in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

Renger van der Zande and Ryan Briscoe will be joined by Scott Dixon in the Cadillac DPi car for Petit Le Mans 10 hours race at Road Atlanta in October, and the Sebring 12 hours in November.

The trio plus Kamui Kobayashi won the Daytona 24 Hours back in January, which is the only race being run so far in IMSA this year. That was the third victory of Dixon at Daytona. Dixon did start out the NTT IndyCar Series, which is his regular full time job, with a victory last weekend at Texas Motor Speedway.

There is one additional round of the Michelin Endurance Cup, which consists of the IMSA races longer than 2 hours and 40 minutes, but that is the 6 hours race at Watkins Glen. Wayne Taylor Racing usually only do that race with two drivers, so they don’t need extra help that weekend. Dixon is already occupied that weekend, since it clashes with Indycar, but that doesn’t make a difference for the team.

The next round of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship is scheduled for the 4 July in Daytona.
