“We’ve always wanted to do it but it’s become more difficult now that my dad isn’t a factory driver," explained Kevin Magnussen.
"When he was a Corvette driver there were some opportunities to do it because Corvette could place me in the car for Le Mans.
"But it became impossible with just logistics and time because you need to prepare and also it’s difficult for Corvette to put one driver in the car for Le Mans and then not the same driver for the other big races they have also.
“Now that he’s not a factory driver we would have to do it in an LMP2 or a GTLM which is difficult because we are both platinum drivers and that can be difficult with these driver categories. It’s a bit complicated in terms of that."
Despite the obvious problems for the two to join forces, the former Haas driver refuses to give up hope on the possibility of racing alongside his father.
“I don’t know if we can do it now, racing and trying to get a good deal for myself and hopefully in a factory team in the future," added Magnussen.
"It could get tricky with my dad but we’ll always keep our eye open for a chance.”
