ROAR Before the 24

January 5, 2018
  • Ricky Taylor

    Ricky Taylor is the 27-year-old elder son of team owner Wayne Taylor, who returned 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 2016 after a pair of victories each in 2014 and 2015 en route to third place, second and fifth, respectively, in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship driver and team standings. He also drove the final five FIA WEC races of the season with the French Larbre Competition Corvette C7-Z06 team, finishing on the podium at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas and in the top-five at Shanghai and Bahrain. The 2017 season opened with career milestone wins as the Taylor brothers debuted the all-new No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R with back-to-back resounding victories at the season-opening Rolex 24 At Daytona and the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring. The Daytona win was with co-drivers Max “The Ax” Angelelli in his last career race and four-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon. The Sebring win came with new third driver Alex Lynn of Great Britain. The Daytona and Sebring wins were amazingly followed by another trio of wins – this time in Long Beach for the third year in a row, at Circuit of the Americas for the second year in a row, and on the Streets of Belle Isle circuit in downtown Detroit for the fourth time in the last five years. Taylor’s 2014 IMSA 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. Taylor also was selected to join his brother in the two-car factory Corvette C6.R ZR1 lineup at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2016. He drove with the U.S.-based Keating Riley LMP2 team at this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans in June. In February, Taylor tested the Team Penske Indy car of defending series champion Simon Pagenaud on the Homestead-Miami Speedway road course. He also was selected with his brother to drive the six SprintX rounds of the Pirelli World Challenge in a pair of Cadillac ATS-V.R coupes this season.

  • Jordan Taylor

    Jordan Taylor, the 25-year-old younger son of team owner Wayne Taylor, returned 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 2016 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. The 2017 season opened with career milestone wins as the Taylor brothers debuted the all-new No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R with back-to-back resounding victories at the season-opening Rolex 24 At Daytona and the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring. The Daytona win was with co-drivers Max “The Ax” Angelelli in his last career race and four-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon. The Sebring win came with new third driver Alex Lynn of Great Britain. The Daytona and Sebring wins were amazingly followed by another trio of wins – this time in Long Beach for the third year in a row, at Circuit of the Americas for the second year in a row, and on the Streets of Belle Isle circuit in downtown Detroit for the fourth time in the last five years. 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. Taylor was selected with his brother to drive the six SprintX rounds of the 2017 Pirelli World Challenge in a pair of Cadillac ATS-V.R coupes.
