(With Michael Cooper, Cadillac Racing)
In 2017, Ricky was a part of the Rolex 24 Hour At Daytona winning team. In 2016 the team had a stellar season in which they scored victories on the streets of Long Beach, California and the Detroit’s Belle Isle circuit, as well as at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas en route to third place in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. His first season with the team was a banner effort in 2013 during which he co-drove with Max “The Ax” Angelelli to the final GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series championship. Taylor scored a pair of IMSA race wins each in 2014 and 2015 and finished second and fifth in the championship, respectively, those two seasons. The Taylor brothers scored their 2014 victories at Detroit in June and at the season-ending Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta in October, the latter alongside third driver Angelelli. The 2015 victories came at Long Beach and Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario. Taylor’s first full season in Prototype-class competition in 2013 featured a series-high five victories, three poles and six podiums en route to the championship with Angelelli. He also has co-drove the factory Chevrolet Corvette C6.R ZR1 to victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June 2015 after a runner-up finish in 2014.
