Franchitti ‘Takes Step Back’ From WEC

Priaulx and Tincknell to share the #67

Ford Performance has announced on Twitter that Marino Franchitti will not drive the #67 Ford GT in the final three rounds of the FIA WEC this season.

This means that fellow Brits Andy Priaulx and Harry Tincknell, who was a late full-season addition to the car, will share it as a duo going forward at Fuji, Shanghai and Bahrain.

The entire GTE Pro field is now made up of two-driver squads, with the teams seeking value in extra track time for the drivers in the flyaway rounds.

However, Ford has given no official reason as of yet for the change.
