Bradley latest addition to Manor WEC squad

Le Mans winner Richard Bradley has become the newest name in the Manor's driver squad for its assault on the FIA World Endurance Championship in LMP2.
Le Mans 24 Hour winner Richard Bradley has become the newest name in the Manor's driver squad for its fresh assault on the FIA World Endurance Championship in the LMP2 class.

The British driver entered 2016 without a drive after his former team KCMG withdrew its full LMP2 effort despite narrowly missing out on the WEC title last year and took victory at Le Mans with Bradley, Matthew Howson and Nicolas Lapierre in its Oreca 05-Nissan.

However, Bradley has been picked up by the newly-formed Manor and the Briton will join Euro F3 graduate Matt Rao in the team's second Nissan-powered Oreca 05, while ex-F1 Manor driver Will Stevens leading in the first car alongside Tor Graves and James Jakes. Manor's third and final driver in its second car will be announced in the coming weeks.
