Cadillac has announced that starting from the 2023 season, it will participate in the FIA World Endurance Championship and the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
It has also been announced that the Italian manufacturer, Dallara, will be helping the American one to design the new LMDh machinery.
Rory Harvey, Cadillac Global Vice President, said that the team is excited to start the new challenge and that the latter will help them understand in a better way how the hybrid and the electric world works.
“We are excited to compete at the top level of international motorsport in the LMDh class beginning in 2023.
“Like motorsport, Cadillac is making the transition into a future driven by alternative propulsion. The hybrid nature of the LMDh rules will help us to bridge our technology transfer to our all-electric future.
“We are excited to carry forward our success and continue to transfer our learnings and technology from the track to our production vehicles. We have had great success with the championship-winning Cadillac DPi-V.R and look forward to building on that record into the future with the next generation Cadillac LMDh.”
Chip Ganassi Racing and Action Express Racing will stay with Cadillac in this new journey. The American car producer aims to debut at the Rolex 24 in January 2023 and will try to be ready for the 24 Hours of Le Mans of that same year.
