Ferdinand Hapsburg and former F1 driver Robert Kubica have joined Fjordbach and Andersen after the High Class made its IMSA debut at this year’s Rolex 24.

“I’m excited to announce our full-season efforts,” said Fjordbach. “I ran a Rolex 24 in Daytona in 2021. This was the team’s first IMSA race, and although the results were unexpected, I fell in love with the atmosphere and such a competitive field.

“Now I have three years of experience at Oreca 07-Gibson and I am ready to show that potential at the Daytona International Speedway starting next January.”

Full-time high-class racing at IMSA may come at the expense of the team’s WEC efforts in the LMP2 Pro / Am division.
