General Motors (GM)-owned Cadillac and Chip Ganassi Racing will part ways at the end of the 2024 World Endurance Championship (WEC) season, as reported by Autosport.


  • Collaboration to end in both WEC and the IMSA SportsCar Championship
  • Chip Ganassi Racing still looking to remain in sportscar racing


Chip Ganassi Racing has enjoyed a long relationship with GM, the parent company of Cadillac, which has also spanned the likes of IndyCar, Nascar and Extreme E. The team has run one car under the Cadillac Racing banner in both IMSA’s GTP class and WEC’s Hypercar class since the start of the 2023 season.

No reason has been given for why this partnership has come to a close, but the Chip Ganassi team had hoped to have two full-season entries this year in WEC. Cadillac decided against expanding beyond one car for financial reasons.


Mike Hull, Chip Ganassi Racing’s managing director, told Autosport that “we are ending this chapter” and that it was coming to an end “in a very positive way”. He also said that he doubted it would be “the last time we work with GM on a racing project”.

“Our GM divisions have had successful partnerships with Chip Ganassi Racing across multiple series – Nascar, IndyCar, Extreme E, IMSA and WEC – over the years,” added Jim Campbell, US vice president of performance and motorsports for General Motors.

“Together we have won numerous races and have had great success. We remain committed to winning races and championships together in IMSA and WEC this year and our sportscar plans for 2025 will be announced at a later date.”

Coming next:

Following the opening race of the season in Qatar, WEC returns on 21st April for the 6 Hours of Imola in Italy.
