Perez backs brother for Daytona 24 entry

Sergio Perez will lend his backing to a Mexican entry for the Daytona 24 Hours endurance race, which includes his brother in the driving line-up.
Force India F1 driver Sergio Perez will lend his backing to an entry for next month's Daytona 24 Hours, which will feature his brother in the driving line-up.

Antonio Perez – Sergio's older brother – and fellow Mexican drivers Ricardo Perez de Lara and Santiago Creel, as well as British racer Lars Viljoen, will drive a TRG Aston Martin V8 Vantage in the GTD class of the endurance classic next month.

Part of an initiative to bolster the role of Mexican drivers in international motor racing, Perez – who will enter into his sixth season of F1 racing in 2016 - is delighted to be offering his support.

“I'm proud to put this team of strong drivers in the hands of TRG-Aston Martin Racing for one of the biggest sports car races of the year,” he said.

“One of my main goals is to help fellow Mexican drivers in opening more opportunities for them outside of the country, so that they can showcase their talent in some of the best categories of the world. And that's exactly what this is about, give them all the support and tools to win this race!”

Perez's brother Antonio competes as a touring car driver in his native Mexico.
