Chip Ganassi Racing announced on Monday that they will return to the 24 Hours of LeMans later this year, fielding two entries in the 24 Hours Of LeMans later this year. Defending NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion Alex Palou and six-time series champion Scott Dixion will participate in the race with Palou in the No.2 Cadillac while Dixon joins four-time INDYCAR SERIES champion Sebastien Bourdais.

Mike O’Gara, Director of Operations commented saying:

“Chip Ganassi Racing is honored to be able to return to Le Mans to represent Cadillac Racing with our two Cadillac V-Series.R racecars. “Finishing third and fourth overall in 2023 proved that we were ready to compete with the car on the world stage. Over the last year, CGR has continued to refine the V-Series.R, and we will be at Circuit de la Sarthe this June to compete again for the overall win. We are fortunate to be able to bring the best drivers and crew in the world to represent the Cadillac brand in one of the most significant races in the motorsports.”

Earl Bamber commented:

“I’m looking forward to going back to Le Mans. We want to improve on where we were last year, which was on the podium. I think we have all the potential to do it with Cadillac and Chip Ganassi Racing. I’m also looking forward to having Alex join our crew. He’s been quite formidable in INDYCAR and he’ll be a great addition to our team in one of the biggest races in the world.”

Alex Lynn commented on the news, saying:

“I’m super excited for Le Mans 2024. We have a busy start to the WEC season with Qatar, Imola, Spa and then on to Le Mans. We were on the podium last year overall and led laps for the first time with Cadillac. We’re very proud of that fact, but with that being said, we’re determined to do even better.”

Defending NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion Alex Palou said:

“Going to Le Mans is an amazing opportunity and a big challenge, as well. It’s only a couple of hours from my home and obviously it is one of the biggest races alongside the Indianapolis 500 and Daytona where you want to participate but also win. We have a chance to win it overall and that is our biggest goal. I’m excited to be back in the Cadillac and join Earl Bamber and Alex Lynn. They had success there last year and the cars were quite fast, so with our recent pace at Daytona, I can’t wait to go there and win.”

Sebastien Bourdais commented saying:

“I’m quite excited to be able to announce that we’ll be back at Le Mans in the No. 3 Cadillac. Obviously, it’s a huge challenge but we’ve had some very promising findings and learnings from last year. I think we definitely have a very competitive car with our Cadillac V-Series.R to be able to contend. Hopefully, we can give it a shot to get that win that is missing on my resume. It’s obviously one that means a ton to me and I’m looking forward to going back there to give it another go.”

Six-time NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion Scott Dixon commented saying:

“I love this race; it’s one of the biggest and the toughest in the world. We all know it is definitely a privilege to even be invited, so I’m excited to go back with Sebastien, Renger, Cadillac and everybody involved. I feel like the team did a tremendous job last year. We had some issues here and there but to go third and fourth was pretty spectacular. Hopefully, we can have a closer fight this year but it’s one I love to do. I’m very fortunate to be able to do this with the team and to be a part of it.”

Renger van der Zande said:

“I think it’s amazing what we did this past year with the Cadillac program finishing third and fourth. That was a testament to the development and everyone’s hard work. I’m looking forward to attacking a classic in Le Mans. We have really strong teammates, really strong teams in Chip Ganassi Racing and Cadillac and partners to make this all work to go for the win. That’s our goal; we are there to win

The 2024 24 Hours of LeMans takes place on June 15.
