All British pairing for Dreyer & Reinbold

Justin Wilson moves to Dreyer & Reinbold Racing for the 2010 IndyCar Series season, forming an all British driver line-up
Dreyer & Reinbold Racing has announced the signing of Justin Wilson in a move which will see it field an all British driver line-up for the 2010 IndyCar Series season.

Wilson will move to the team from Dale Coyne Racing – where he gave the team its maiden win last season – to partner Mike Conway, who returns for a second season.

Wilson will run with backing from Z-Line designs, which moves with the Briton from Dale Coyne to support the #22 entry.

“Obviously I'm very excited to join Dreyer & Reinbold Racing,” Wilson said. “I think that they are a great team and I really like the direction that DRR is headed in. They have put a lot of work in over the winter and that is very encouraging.

I believe that we will be very competitive and my aim is to win the championship. I know it may seem steep, but I feel that we have a very good chance and I'm ready to win some races. I also think that its great that Z-line Designs has chosen Dreyer & Reinbold Racing and I really look forward to working with them for a second year. It's going to be a good season.”

Conway has re-signed a deal to drive the #24 car after a debut campaign which saw him take a podium finish at Infineon Raceway and he admitted he was glad to be back for a second assault on the series.

“I'm very excited to re-sign again with DRR for the 2010 season,” he said. “Last year there was a lot to learn and was a tough season, but now I'm more prepared and looking forward to the season ahead. Over the winter the team has been striving to build a better team and from what I have seen it all looks very exciting. I'd like to thank all of my sponsors for all their continued support and can't wait to get out and win races this year.”
