The American manufacturer issued a tweet on Tuesday morning announcing that it will retain its current quartet of Andy Priaulx, Harry Tincknell, Olivier Pla and Stefan Mucke.

 

Priaulx and Tincknell spearheaded Ford's GTE Pro title challenge this season in the #67 car, winning races in Silverstone and Shanghai and falling only 10.5 points short of the top spot in the standings.

Pla and Mucke had a more subdued season in the sister #66 entry, only scoring one podium finish in Spa and ending the campaign seventh of the eight driver crews in class.

The 2018/19 campaign is the final one confirmed for the team, as Ford's commitment to the Ganassi-run project was only to the end of the 2019 calendar year.
