Adrian Quaife-Hobbs has joined VonRyan Racing for the upcoming Blancpain Endurance Series as the McLaren 650S GT3 team retain a strong driver line-up.

Rob Bell, Kevin Estre, Alvaro Parente, Bruno Senna and Shane van Gisbergen have all already been announced to be racing for the team and the former GP2 race-winner moves into sportscar racing for the first time.

Quaife-Hobbs set the motorsport world alight in 2012 when he dominated the 2012 AutoGP series, becoming the first driver in the history of the series to win five race victories in a single season. The Tonbridge racer has also contested the GP2 and GP3 series, Formula BMW, Formula Renault and Formula 3.
