Ward: Instagram Message Led to Black Swan PWC Debut

Jeff Ward says an interaction with Tim Pappas on Instagram led to his drive with Black Swan Racing in this weekend’s Pirelli World Challenge round on the streets of Long Beach.

The motorcycle racing legend and former IndyCar driver is set for his PWC debut in the team’s Porsche GT4 Clubsport MR, which is one of seven GT4-spec cars competing in the GTS invitational class.

Ward, who hasn’t driven full-time in four-wheeled circuit racing since the 2002 IndyCar Series season with Chip Ganassi Racing, said he was eager to jump at the opportunity, even if it came under unique circumstances.
