"I am so excited to be embarking on this new challenge," said Piquet. "SH Racing have a serious set up with the Ford factory Fiesta, they're an experienced team and I have no doubt we will be fighting for wins. Competing in GRC is such an exciting prospect for me. I've always loved being diverse in my racing career and cannot wait to see what this year brings."
"Nobody was brave enough to say let's go to NASCAR. It's a different culture. A whole different culture," Piquet said.
