Alex Brundle has teamed up with G-Drive for the remainder of the 2016 FIA World Endurance Championship, replacing Nathanael Berthon in a full-time drive capacity.
After Will Stevens was loaned by Manor to G-Drive for Le Mans, the defending LMP2 champions had been seeking a full-time replacement for Berthon after he split from the #26 Oreca 05-Nissan squad during the build-up to the prestigious 24 hour race.
G-Drive has secured Brundle for the rest of the WEC campaign and with partner Rene Rast and Roman Rusinov who are currently second in the LMP2 championship standings, with Stevens returning to Manor.
Brundle, who finished runner-up in the 2013 LMP2 championship with Oak Racing, currently competes in LMP3 with United Autosports and lead the European Le Mans Series standings.
“I'm delighted to be driving for G-Drive Racing in the final 6 races of the FIA WEC, especially with the incredibly strong package that the team has put together for this season,” Brundle said. “The Nürburgring event can't come soon enough and it's fantastic to be re-joining this global series, representing my long term sponsors Richard Mille.
“It will be a real privilege to work with the team, who have proven it to be one of the best endurance outfits worldwide. With the massive experience of Rene and the pace of Roman I think we will make a potent combination, to deliver strong results for the remainder of the season.”
