Ricky Taylor is the 27-year-old elder son of team owner Wayne Taylor, who returns to the No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R team as full-time co-driver for his seventh career season and fourth in a row alongside his younger brother Jordan. He co-drove to three victories in 2017 after a pair of victories each in 2014 and 2015 enroute to third place, second and fifth, respectively, in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship driver and team standings. The 2014 victories came on the Streets of Belle Isle circuit in downtown Detroit for the team’s second win in a row at the Chevrolet-sponsored event, and in dominating fashion alongside third driver Max “The Ax” Angelelli at the season-ending Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta. The 2015 victories came at both races Taylor earned pole positions – in dominating fashion once again on the Long Beach (Calif.) Grand Prix street circuit, and at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario. His qualifying performance in 2015 earned Taylor that season’s TOTAL Pole Award. The 2016 victories came for the second year in a row at Long Beach, and for the second time in three years at Detroit, as well as for the first time at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. Taylor co-drove to seven wins and 10 pole positions alongside Angelelli in the No. 10 WTR entry from 2010 through 2012. In 2011, he secured a near-history-making six consecutive pole positions – one shy of the series record set by Jon Fogarty in 2007. Taylor co-drove the No. 90 Spirit of Daytona Corvette DP with Richard Westbrook during the 2013 GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series season. In 2016, in addition to his driving duties with the No. 10 Konica Minolta race team, Taylor was Lead Driver with Larbre Competition in five international World Endurance Championship and was also selected to join the two-car factory Corvette C6.R ZR1 effort at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2016.
Jordan Taylor, the 25-year-old younger son of team owner Wayne Taylor, returns for the fourth season to co-drive with his older brother Ricky in the all-new No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R after a stellar season in which the team scored victories on the streets of Long Beach, California and the Detroit’s Belle Isle circuit, as well as at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas en route to third place in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. His first season with the team was a banner effort in 2013 during which he co-drove with Max “The Ax” Angelelli to the final GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series championship. Taylor scored a pair of IMSA race wins each in 2014 and 2015 and finished second and fifth in the championship, respectively, those two seasons. The Taylor brothers scored their 2014 victories at Detroit in June and at the season-ending Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta in October, the latter alongside third driver Angelelli. The 2015 victories came at Long Beach and Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario. Taylor’s first full season in Prototype-class competition in 2013 featured a series-high five victories, three poles and six podiums en route to the championship with Angelelli. He also has co-drove the factory Chevrolet Corvette C6.R ZR1 to victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June 2015 after a runner-up finish in 2014.
