Pfaff Motorsports has confirmed their full-time IMSA WeatherTech drivers Olly Jarvis and Martin Kirchhoefer, James Hinchcliffe at three endurance races and Alexander Rossi at the 24 Hours of Daytona season-opener.
Jarvis said: “I am really excited to be joining Pfaff Motorsports driving a McLaren 720S GT3 Evo
“The opportunity to join a proven championship-winning team and to return to IMSA full-time after winning the championship in 2022 made it an easy decision.
“Whilst it will be my first full season competing in GTD Pro in IMSA, I am relishing the opportunity together with my new teammates to fight for victories and ultimately the championship.
“A huge thanks to everyone at Pfaff Motorsports and McLaren for making this happen.”
The Briton will join Kirchhoefer, a McLaren factory driver since 2021, as full-season drivers.
Kirchhoefer said: “I’m super excited and I really can’t wait to get the season started.
“I’m feeling very honored that I’ll be part of the Pfaff Motorsports family.
“This is a big dream for me coming true and racing in the United States is something I’ve always wanted to do especially after my single-seater career in Europe.
“This year at Daytona was one of the most enjoyable races I’ve ever done – I love the atmosphere, I love the fans, and it’s just such a great environment to be in.
“Every driver I’ve talked to has the same opinion about racing in the States.
“It’s really a big thing for me, and especially being with Pfaff Motorsports because I’ve heard only good things and that it’s one of the best teams.
“I’m super motivated to have an amazing 2024 season.”
Former IndyCar star James Hinchcliffe is set to complement the duo as their endurance driver, for the Daytona 24, 12 Hours of Sebring, and season-ending Petit Le Mans, which leaves a seat open for another driver at the Six Hours of the Glen and the Battle on the Bricks.
During his career in the North American single-seater series, he claimed six race wins and 16 podiums.
His previous IMSA experience resided with four outings, three at the Daytona 24 in 2017, 2015, and 2014. An additional outing took place in a Riley Honda DP at the 2014 Road America 500.
Hinchcliffe said: “Being a proud Canadian, and with Pfaff Motorsports as Canada’s top professional race team, I am absolutely thrilled to partner with them in 2024 for the three long endurance races.
“Since we came up with this concept back in 2021 and as I looked to make a transition from IndyCar, being in this series and with this team has always been part of my goal.
“Being part of this next chapter with McLaren and with their last few years of on-track success, there is a lot of pressure, but a lot of optimism.
“I am grateful to Chris Pfaff and everyone on the team for making this happen.
