Westbrook joins JMW

Richard Westbrook to parter Rob Bell in the JMW Motorsport Aston Martin Vantage for the 2010 season
JMW Motorsport has announced the signing of FIA GT2 title winner Richard Westbrook partner to Rob Bell for the 2010 season.

Westbrook will share driving duties with his fellow Briton at the wheel of the team's new Aston Martin Vantage during the Le Mans Series season as JMW takes up the mantle of GT2 development partner with Aston Martin Racing.

“I am very excited about joining JMW Motorsport and am looking forward to getting behind the wheel of the Aston Martin,” Westbrook said. “The whole project has a very special British feel to it. It is an important project for all concerned and to work with Aston Martin and Dunlop on development is a challenge I look forward to being part of.

“I am a big fan of Rob and the chance to drive alongside him certainly swayed my mind. We will be looking to make the Aston Martin as competitive as possible from the outset and I am sure we can. We will be working very hard.”

Team manager Tim Sugden will join the pair for the Le Mans 24 Hours in the summer and he was delighted to welcome Westbrook into the team.

“I have known Richard for many years and as we've all seen, whatever he turns his hand to he is brilliant,” he said. “Richard is an amazing driver and a fantastic asset to the team. He and Rob will make an enviable driver pairing of that we are sure.”
