Nick Tandy is hoping to maintain his winning momentum with LMP2 squad KCMG as the FIA World Endurance Championship restarts for the 6 Hours of Nurburgring.

The Le Mans 24 Hours winner with Porsche hasn't raced for KCMG since the WEC season-opener at Silverstone back in April and since then he has enjoyed a phenomenal summer period of success.

As well as victory in the blue riband endurance event, Tandy has also claimed victory at the Nurburgring in the VLN along with a three-race winning run with Porsche in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.

"Since the last time I raced with KCMG back at Silverstone, I've been fortunate not only to win Le Mans with Porsche, but also races in VLN as well as three races in North America," Tandy said. "So I'm really hoping to carry on this success in the LMP2 class and try to extend KCMG's lead in the WEC championship."

KCMG has also revelled in recent triumphs with victory in the LMP2 class at Le Mans with Matthew Howson, Richard Bradley and Nicolas Lapierre on driver duties. For the Nurburgring Tandy partners Howson and Bradley to reunite the all-British line-up used at Silverstone.

"I'm very excited to be racing again after a long break since Le Mans," Bradley said. "We had a very productive test at the Nurburgring a month ago and after the performance we showed in Le Mans and the developments we've made with the car, we can look forward to a good result and hope to consolidate our championship lead."

Eric Kolb, KCMG team manager in WEC, welcomes Tandy back to the squad with open arms and is hopeful his team can extend its current advantage in the LMP2 championship, which it leads by four points from the #28 G-Drive Racing.

"We proceed to WEC's second half of the season well-prepared and set to maintain the winning form that we had at Le Mans," Kolb said. "We are happy to welcome Nick back in LMP2 after his success with Porsche in LMP1 and GTLM."
