Pagenaud, who was one of the team's biggest rivals, will now be joining Klaus Graf and Lucas Luhr aboard the HPD ARX-03a LMP1 prototype for the 60th anniversary race of the 12 Hours of Sebring.


The Frenchman won the 2010 ALMS Championship with Highcroft Racing ahead of the Muscle Milk team, scoring four wins in an HPD ARX-01c. His last ALMS start came at the 12 Hours of Sebring last season, where he finished second.


Before joining Highcroft Racing in 2010, Pagenaud spent a couple of seasons with de Ferran Motorsports with whom he started his career in the sports car series. Since his debut in 2008, he has made 28 starts, finished on the podium 21 times and scored nine wins, all aboard a Honda Performance Development prototype.


Additionally, the driver who will be competing full time in INDYCAR this season finished second in the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans with Peugeot and is the 2006 Formula Atlantic Champion.


Pagenaud will be present with Muscle Milk Pickett Racing at the ALMS Winter Test this week, February 8 and 9, at Sebring International Raceway.
