Brundle set for second WEC outing

Martin Brundle rejoins the WEC for the race at Silverstone
Martin Brundle will make a second appearance in the World Endurance Championship after the Greaves Motorsport team confirmed it will field a second car for the race at Silverstone in August.

Brundle will once again team up with son Alex and Nissan's first GT Academy winner Lucas Ordonez for the event at the wheel of Greaves' second Zytek-Nissan in the LMP2 class.

Despite showing impressive pace in the Le Mans 24 Hours, a series of issues over the course of the race meant the trio had to settle for eighth in class, with Brundle saying he was hopeful that the Silverstone event would see the car challenging for the class podium.

“I thoroughly enjoyed the whole Le Mans 24 Hours adventure,” Brundle said, “so when I was asked to race the Greaves Zytek-Nissan on the spectacularly fast Silverstone GP circuit with Alex and Lucas, the answer was simply 'yes'. I'm looking forward to another race finish, hopefully on the podium.”

Ordonez said he was excited by the prospect of being able to compete once again alongside the former F1 racer.

“At first when I heard I was driving with Martin I though 'wow' this will be amazing and I will learn a lot about racing technique,” he said. “I actually learnt a lot more than that as Martin is an incredibly professional driver in all areas. By watching him I have learned a lot about how to handle myself in this sport.

“I can't wait for Silverstone as we will be able to race without pressure and I think we should be able to get a good result there. I hope that after the race I will have a photograph of me on the podium with Martin and Alex. Thank you to Nissan for yet another great opportunity; this is turning into an amazing season!”
