Briscoe reunites with Ganassi for 2014
13 December 2013 – Ryan Briscoe will rejoin Chip Ganassi Racing for the 2014 IndyCar season, it was announced on Friday.
The 32-year-old Australian, who completed this year's Indianapolis 500 with the team, joins reigning IndyCar champion Scott Dixon, Tony Kanaan and Charlie Kimball in a four-strong line-up.
The vacancy was the result of Dario Franchitti's retirement from motor racing last month, with Kanaan, who was previously scheduled to drive the #8 machine, now being placed in the #10 car.
"This is just great news and I can't wait to get back behind the wheel of the No. 8 car again. We built some great chemistry during the month of May this year with the whole crew," said Briscoe.
"I think all four drivers can win races next season and it's not every day you get to be a part of a team like that."
Aside from his Indianapolis 500 outing with Ganassi, Briscoe contested six further events for Panther Racing in 2013, sharing the #4 National Guard car with Oriol Servià and Carlos Muñoz after J. R. Hildebrand was dropped.
