Richard Bradley has re-signed with the KCMG team for the upcoming FIA World Endurance Championship and will partner 2014 team-mate Matt Howson on the driver line-up.

The Chinese team is targeting the LMP2 crown after notching up three victories last season at Austin, Bahrain and Intelagos respectively, finishing third in the teams' championship.

The 23-year-old British driver says he is excited to begin the new season and getting to grips with the all-new ORECA 05 car.

"I'm delighted to continue my relationship with KCMG for this year's World Endurance Championship and I'm particularly looking forward to making my second start in Le Mans" Bradley said. "Having won three races last season, we go into the new season with a strong chance of contending for the LMP2 title, driving the new ORECA 05. 2015 looks very promising and I can't wait to get started."

Bradley made his debut with KCMG in 2013, racing in the Super Formula series as well as the a couple of WEC and Asian Le Mans rounds, notably winning the 3 hours of Fuji race. The British driver made the full-time step up to the WEC in the LMP2 class alongside his fellow countryman Howson and the pair are reunited for 2015.

"One of Richard's strong points as a driver is his pace in the LMP2, which has contributed in major ways to KCMG's success in 2014, KCMG's WEC team manager Erich Kolb said. "We are delighted to have him once again represent the team alongside Matt at La Sarthe and for the entire season of WEC. 2015 will present new challenges and we are looking forward to conquering each confidently as we transition from the ORECA 03R to the new 05 LMP2."

KCMG founder Paul Ip added: "We are pleased to have Richard rejoin our LMP2 program and to continue the strong relationship that we forged back in 2013. Apart from this unwavering commitment, he has been an asset after sharing an Asian Le Mans win and three WEC victories with KCMG for the past two seasons."
