Ford has announced it will enter three Ford GTs at Sebring as they going for a sweep of the world's three great endurance races- Le Mans, Daytona and Sebring. But Corvette has a streak of their own on the line as they are going for their third straight Sebring win.
"This is another great opportunity for our WEC and IMSA teams to work together as the opportunity to data share is invaluable," said Chip Ganassi, owner of Ford Chip Ganassi Racing. "There are not a lot of opportunities for us to get together so when we have the chance we will always try to take advantage of it. Plus, to be able to bring another car to a legendary endurance event like Sebring is something special to all of us."
Ford Chip Ganassi Racing followed a storybook win in GTE Pro at the 2016 Le Mans 24 Hours with a GTLM victory at this year's Rolex 24 At Daytona.
At Sebring, Ford and Corvette will also have to face Ferrari, BMW and Porsche in the GTLM class. Meanwhile, 21 GTD entries make the Sebring field one of the best ever seen.
