Jean-Francois Dumoulin will race against his brother, Louis-Philippe, at the 2014 Rolex 24 at Daytona, having agreed terms with Magnus Racing.

Driving the #44 Porsche 911 GT America, Dumoulin, who won the event in the SGS class in 2004 and the GT Class in 2007, will partner John Potter, Andy Lally and Wolf Henzler, all of whom have tasted victory at the Rolex 24.

“I was contacted early this week by the Magnus Racing team, and the agreement was reached Thursday night. I’m very happy to participate in the 24 at Daytona with them. Especially since I know a few members of the team and I’ve already raced with Andy Lally in the past, this will be fun,” said Jean-François Dumoulin. “The trials resume on Thursday, January 23rd and I’ll have to adapt to the car quickly and be ready to race.”

The 2014 running of the Rolex 24 at Daytona will be Dumoulin’s ninth time to the event, consistently being a force to be reckoned with around the high banks of the Floridian circuit. Jean-Francois’ brother, Louis-Philippe, was announced as a member of Alex Job Racing‘s Daytona team earlier in the month.
