Matt Howson calls his return to the World Endurance Championship with KCMG 'a dream come true' and is focused on fighting for the LMP2 title in the team's brand new ORECA 05 car.

The British driver had been part of KCMG's Asian-based Formula championships since 2007 before he switched to Le Mans prototype racing. Howson picked up three WEC victories with KCMG last season in Austin, Bahrain and Interlagos respectively.

"It's a dream come true to be back in WEC and Le Mans with KCMG in 2015," Howson said. "I won their first race as a team in Asian F3, was part of their first Le Mans effort and WEC wins, so we have a great history together."

Howson will compete in the full WEC season in the LMP2 class, including the prestigious Le Mans 24 Hour race in June.

"This season will be tougher and there's huge expectation, but with a great team and the new ORECA 05, I'm confident that we can fight at the front of the LMP2 field," he added. "I'd like to thank everyone at KCMG and I plan to repay their faith in me."

KCMG founder Paul Ip commended the British driver's loyalty and is delighted to have him on board again.

"His commitment and talent has been a valuable asset to KCMG and we're happy to have him represent us once again in FIA WEC and Le Mans," Ip said.
