Australiaâ€™s Ryan Briscoe tipped to drive a factory Ford GT in 2016
That carefully worded release only added more fuel to the fire that is Briscoe's apparent connection to the Ford GT program being spearheaded by Chip Ganassi Racing in America. The program will field entries in both the United Sports Car Series in America and the FIA World Endurance Championship, which, of course, counts the 24 Hours of Le Mans as the jewel in its crown.
While there has been no official announcement – and Briscoe wasn't part of the group from Ganassi who shook down the awesome-looking new Ford GT machine at Daytona International Speedway recently – there is certainly plenty of speculation linking Briscoe to the job.
As the old saying goes, where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and there’s certainly been plenty of smoke recently.
