Two powerhouse motorsports organizations have combined to make a spirited run at multiple class championships in 2023.

Wayne Taylor Racing welcomes Andretti Autosport to the fold in 2023. This is a new long-term partnership, according to Wayne Tayor Racing. The partnership will see the championship-caliber teams combine resources to compete in IMSA’s top classes, including the newly formed GTP for the overall title with the No. 10 Konica Minolta Acura ARX-06 as well as in GTD with the No. 93 Harrison Contracting Company Acura NSX Evo22.

The team will also race in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America series.

“This is an exciting time for us. We’re proud to be returning to the IMSA paddock in this way and the opportunity to be part of the launch of the GTP program alongside Wayne Taylor Racing and our friends at Honda Performance Development,” said Michael Andretti, CEO of Andretti Autosport.

The future plans for this newly formed organization have lofty goals and during the 2023 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season, day-to-day operations and leadership remain as they are currently. But the organization will see a long-term goal of moving the programs into Andretti Global’s recently announced 575,000-square-foot headquarters in Fishers, Indiana, due to be operational in 2025.

Andretti will continue its LMP3 team with Jarett Andretti behind the wheel.

Andretti Autosports will also plan to compete in six additional racing championships worldwide, including the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, INDY NXT by Firestone, ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, Extreme E, Australia’s Repco Supercars Championship and Mexico’s SuperCopa series.

If it races, I'll write about it, talk about it or shoot it with a camera. I began pursuing a career in motorsports journalism immediately after attending college at Kent State University. I have hosted multiple Motorsports talk shows, worked in Country Music radio, and now i spend every day on the air in the morning with 1300 and 100.9 WMVO and in the afternoons watching the roadways around Central Ohio for 93.7 WQIO. The excitement and the fans make everything I put out there worth while, it's been an exciting 15 years having covered everything from the Daytona 500 to the Rolex 24 and you can find me at pretty much any event run at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. What I like to bring is a look behind the scenes, a look at what and who makes the sport grow. From the guy that welds pieces back at the shop to the host in the tv booth. Everyone has a story and I like to tell it. My main focus here at TPF is looking at the men and women behind the microphone and cameras. My life long goal is to become a member of MRN or PRN Radio and bring the races to you. I hope that what I share now is enjoyable and gives you a unique look in to the world of motorsports. See you at a track soon
