Meyer Shank Racing (MSR) announced today that sports car ace and 2021 Motul Petit Le Mans overall winner Oliver Jarvis will join the team’s full-season lineup for the 2022 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season. Jarvis will make his debut in the No. 60 Acura ARX-05 DPi in the 2022 Rolex 24 At Daytona as MSR begins its second full-season of IMSA DPi competition.
Jarvis has competed full-time in the category for the last four seasons, earning 14 podium finishes including race victories at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park and Watkins Glen International in 2020 and most recently Petit Le Mans last weekend. Prior to his career in IMSA, Jarvis competed in DTM from 2008-2011.
Jarvis made his FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) debut in 2010 competing at the coveted 24 Hours of Le Mans. With nine career starts in the famed 24 hour European event, Jarvis scored victory in the 2017 edition with an LMP2 win on the way to finishing second overall. He has also netted five WEC wins between 2016-2017 at Spa Francorchamps, Bahrain, Silverstone, Le Mans, and Nurburgring.
“I am delighted to be joining Meyer Shank Racing for the 2022 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar championship,” said Jarvis. “I can’t wait to start working with Mike (Shank) and the team, and to get my first taste of the Acura ARX-05.
“Having competed against the Acura for many years, and watching it win numerous races and titles, I’m more than aware of how capable it is,” continued Jarvis. “With a new team, there will be lots to learn, but I am certain we will be up to speed quickly and I can’t wait to get on track and start challenging for victories.”
