Evaluating IMSA Future
September 19, 2018
Sims says joining the ABB FIA Formula E Championship could prevent him from taking part in the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship next year. The BMW factory driver, who was announced alongside Antonio Felix da Costa in the BMW i Andretti Motorsport team last week, first told e-racing365 that a full-season sports car program might not be possible in 2019, sportscar365.com reports.
"I would guess that a full season of GTs is not going to happen, but there's absolutely nothing confirmed at this stage," Sims said. "I'm hopeful of still being able to be part of some form of GT racing because I've really enjoyed it over the last five or six years. I certainly wouldn't want to lose out and do none of it, so hopefully we can find a calendar that works and slots in with Formula E to continue some of that." It looks like Sims' plate will be full next season with Formula E racing. We wouldn't rule out the spot start in IMSA, but only where the calendar allows.
