Dyson Racing inks a deal with British driver Andy Meyrick for the 2010 ALMS season
Dyson Racing has announced that British driver Andy Meyrick will be join forces with Chris Dyson and Guy Smith in the #16 LMP2 Mazda Lola Coupe for ALMS endurance events this season.

Meyrick, who completed in the Le Mans Series last season with the Kolles Audi team, will share driving duties in the car at Sebring, Laguna Seca and Petit Le Mans and could also join the team at additional tests during the year.

“I am really excited to be joining Dyson Racing,” he said. “They have an amazing history in endurance racing in the USA. Both Rob and Chris Dyson are very passionate about their racing and I am very grateful to them for the chance to be in the #16 car with Chris and Guy.

“It is an ideal situation for me to make my debut in the American Le Mans Series. Chris first invited me to test late last year and our focus has been to secure this drive ever since. The Mazda-powered Lola is a great package and I am really looking forward to the challenge of Sebring and the other events.”

Chris Dyson said he was confident Meyrick would be a strong addition to the team for the year ahead.

“Andy's talent and determination came through very strongly at our two winter tests,” he said. “He impressed us greatly with his speed, maturity and general approach to the team. It was a very good fit straight away.

“We won the Petit Le Mans last year and the team looks forward to having Andy on board for all three of this season's endurance races. We welcome him to American sports car racing and expect he will showcase his talent quickly. It will not take long for the fans to see what we saw when he first got behind the wheel.”
