Andy Priaulx joins Ford GT for World Endurance Championship
Former World Touring Car champion Andy Priaulx has joined Ford GT for this year's World Endurance Championship.
The Guernsey-born driver ended his 13-year career as a BMW works driver last month after winning three world titles with the German manufacturer.
The new season gets underway at Silverstone in April and includes the famous Le Mans 24-Hour race in June.
"This is going to be an amazing season and all I want to do is get behind the wheel of the new car," said Priaulx.
"Racing at the Le Mans 24 Hours is always special, but I am also looking forward to racing this car on some other legendary tracks."
The 41-year-old will join Marino Franchitti, Stefan Mücke and Olivier Pla on Ford's team for the endurance championship, which was won by Mark Webber and Porsche in November.
