Meyer Shank Racing will feature an all-new driver lineup for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship next year, with Tom Blomqvist joining Oliver Jarvis in the No. 60 Acura ARX-05 DPi.

Blomqvist, who most recently finished second in the FIA World Endurance Championship LMP2 class championship with JOTA, will be taking on the MSR Acura DPi for the first time next year.

A veteran of GT, LMP2 and Formula E racing, Blomqvist scored eight podium finishes – including a second place LMP2 finish at the 24 Hours of Le Mans – as well as scoring two poles and two victories between his entries in the Asian Le Mans Series and WEC.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining Meyer Shank Racing for the 2022 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship,” said Blomqvist.

“MSR has proven itself as one of the top race teams in the US, and in the Acura DPi I’m fully confident that we have a fantastic foundation for success next year.

“I have previous experience of racing in the States from 2019, and in prototypes from this year in the WEC, so I’m hoping to utilize that experience so we can hit the ground running next year!”

MSR will debut it’s full-season lineup of Jarvis and Blomqvist starting with the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona in January, with the team’s endurance drivers yet to be announced.

Both Helio Castroneves and Simon Pagenaud, who will drive for the team’s NTT IndyCar Series program next year, are expected to complete the roster.
