High Class Racing has committed to a full-season IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship program next year in LMP2.

The Danish squad announced Tuesday that Anders Fjorbach and Bronze-rated Dennis Andersen are the first two drivers confirmed in the effort, which will begin in January’s season-opening Rolex 24 at Daytona and include all seven eligible races.

Fjorbach and Anderson competed this year with the team in the FIA World Endurance Championship, sharing the wheel of the team’s Oreca 07 Gibson with Jan Magnussen in three out of the six races.

Robert Kubica came onboard for the final two races of the season at Bahrain.

It’s believed the team’s venture into the WeatherTech Championship will come in place of a return to the WEC next year.

High Class made its WeatherTech Championship debut in this year’s Rolex 24 with Fjorbach, Anderson, Kubica and newly crowned WEC LMP2 world champion Ferdinand von Habsburg, dropping out of the race early.

In addition to WEC competition, the team has previously contested the European Le Mans Series and currently also competes in the Fanatec GT2 European Series with an Audi R8 LMS GT2 car.
