Christina Nielsen joins Patrick Long for 2018 IMSA GTD series

Nevermind all the other crappy women in racing news, this is truly something to get stoked for. Nielsen is the 2017 and 2016 GTD champion, and the 2015 runner-up. Patrick Long is a very successful Porsche factory driver, 2017 Pirelli WC champion, and IIRC, the only North American Porsche factory driver? I was wondering what Nielsen would do after winning back to back championships but not announcing her 2018 plans. Well no wonder. One of the biggest rising stars in sports car racing teaming up with a successful seasoned veteran, like Long? This is going to be the team/line-up to beat this year.
