Turner set for full campaign

8 March 2010

Darren Turner is all set for a busy year after it was announced today that he has joined JMW Motorsport for a full-season assault on the Le Mans Series.

The British driver teams up with Rob Bell to race the #92 Aston Martin Vantage for Jim McWhirter's championship-winning team.

The Le Mans Series season fits in neatly around Turner's drive in the FIA GT1 World Championship for the Young Driver AMR Team and, of course, the Le Mans 24 Hours, which will see him back behind the wheel of the Aston Martin LMP1 car.

"We are delighted to announce that, with the support of Aston Martin Racing, we have secured the services of Darren Turner for the full five-race LMS championship," said McWhirter. "This underlines our commitment to this championship and adds yet another strength to our very motivated team ethos. Darren brings a wealth of experience to the team as well as a working knowledge of the Vantage V8 GT2."

"I'm very happy to be joining JMW Motorsport for 2010," Turner added. "The team has already won the LMS GT2 title twice, outlining their winning capabilities.

"It's good to be teaming up with Rob again as we have won together before. I'm also looking forward to working with Dunlop who have a very competitive tyre in GT2 and have already achieved great success with JMW."

The first race in the 2010 Le Mans Series takes place at Paul Ricard next month - 11 April.
