Jonathan Bomarito will make his return to the 24 Hours of Le Mans, having been confirmed as the final driver within Ford Chip Ganassi Racing’s lineup for the French endurance classic.

The 37-year-old American will team with Andy Priaulx and Harry Tincknell in the No. 67 Ford GT, reuniting the same trio that finished third in last month’s 1000 Miles of Sebring, which marked Bomarito’s Ford debut.

It had been strongly indicated that Bomarito would also contest Le Mans with the Multimatic-run team.

Bomarito is set for his second Le Mans start, having been part of SRT Motorsports’ Dodge Viper GTS-R effort in 2013, also in GTE-Pro.

Billy Johnson, meanwhile, will be the third driver in the No. 66 Ford alongside full-season drivers Olivier Pla and Stefan Muecke.

Ford, which has typically utilized its full Le Mans lineup at Spa, has elected for two-driver crews in both the Nos. 66 and 67 for this weekend’s penultimate round of the 2018-19 FIA World Endurance Championship season.
