SPORTSCAR365: Taylor Brothers Relishing PWC SprintX Opportunity

PRINT PIRELLI WORLD CHALLENGE STAFF February 16, 2017Series News, SprintX, Team News

‘Cadillac Racing’s newly-announced Pirelli World Challenge SprintX drivers Ricky and Jordan Taylor say they are honored to get the call to join the brand’s World Challenge lineup in addition to their IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship program.

The brothers teamed to win last month’s Rolex 24 at Daytona for their fathers’ team alongside Max Angelelli and Jeff Gordon, and now have their sights set on World Challenge’s new two-driver SprintX format with co-drivers Johnny O’Connell and Michael Cooper.

Both Taylors said the opportunity came in part due to their longstanding relationship with Pratt & Miller, the vehicle and engineering company behind so many of General Motors’ racing efforts.

“As everybody knows, Pratt & Miller has been pretty close with [Wayne Taylor Racing] in the past, me and Jordan have spent time in some of the Corvettes, and it’s all a big GM family,” Ricky Taylor told Sportscar365.’
