The 2023 and beyond DRIVER ANNOUNCEMENTS MEGA THREAD

One of the most intriguing aspects of the new sportscar landscape - I thought it would be cool to make one place for all the driver announcements.

We're starting to see the first of potentially 50+ manufacturer seats being filled across both WEC and IMSA for 2023. Plus you have other programmes like Lambo, Alpine, McLaren??, coming along a year later.

So what do we know so far?

Peugeot - Kevin Magnussen, Jean-Eric Vergne, Loic Duval, Gustavo Menezes, Paul Di Resta, Mikkel Jensen (assuming drivers are all on multi-year deals)

Audi - Rene Rast, Nico Muller (self confirmed)

Porsche - Yifel Ye, Felipe Nasr, Dane Cameron (TBC/heavily rumoured. Unsure of WEC/IMSA duties)

Cadillac - Earl Bamber, Alex Lynn, Renger van der Zande, Sebastien Bourdais (assumption these will extend over into '23)


Are there any other announcements I've missed so far? Major rumours?

I know we're all looking forward to Hypercar/LMDh, but I think it's a bit much to expect them to reach time-travelling speeds!

I think you've got all the ones I've heard of. There were musing about Tandy going to Cadillac when Bamber was announced, but nothing more.

Edit - Toyota drivers? We know Ogier & Hirakawa have been testing, so one of the current roster may be on their way out.

Koenigsegg should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
For BMW I would say Connor De Philippi, Augusto Farfus and Bruno Spengler are likely. Spengler has P1 experience, De Philippi is actively getting proto experience and I don't see BMW not including Farfus. But who else though? Krohn? Eng? Edwards?

Haha ooops. Fixed!

Yeah I was thinking about Toyota. There's the assumption those guys will stay put, but as new manufacturers flood into the sport there could be temptation to jump ship. I also think a third car for Spa + LM could be a possibility in the future.

I think on Endurance-Info they mentioned Ogier is not being considered as a full-time driver but *may* be in the frame for a 3rd car (at Le Mans) if they field an additional car.

James Rossiter was also named as Peugeot simulator and reserve driver. Not impossible he gets a race drive at some point.

Glickenhaus?

Good question. I got the feeling that not all of their drivers would be returning next season. Would like to see Derani there again but they have already lost Menezes to Pug.

'23 almost feels a bit far into the future to be chatting about Glickenhaus drivers right now. Hope they are still in the mix.

Will we have a planet left in 2023? If we are still here will we be allowed motor racing? The climate change lot seem to think we are as good as dead?

Good point, he may end up being one of the factory Caddy drivers in the WEC.

I feel that way about a lot of the program announcements for 23. We have a whole season to get through before that!

In all seriousness, did Tracy stop racing? Can't remember I've seen him running in (major) series since 2019/2020.

Haven't seen him since Krohn was on a Proton car in 19 I think it was. Wonder if 2020 caught him out and he hasn't found a good program yet.

He was driving on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife at the 24h with a Cup Porsche the last years,
