Alex Brundle has secured a full-time switch up to LMP1 with the Manor Racing-run CEFC TRSM Racing Ginetta squad for the 2018-19 World Endurance Championship super season.

Brundle was part of the Jackie Chan DC Racing squad which came close to winning the 2017 Le Mans 24 Hours outright as an LMP2 entry before having to settle for second place behind Porsche having returned to WEC on a full-time basis last year after winning the European Le Mans Series with United Autosports in 2016.

Brundle will join Oliver Rowland in the #6 CEFC TRSM Racing Ginetta for the full 2018-19 WEC campaign with its third driver yet to be announced. Charlie Robertson remains the only confirmed driver for the team’s #5 car.

The British driver, son of ex-F1 star and Sky Sports F1 pundit Martin Brundle, will join up with the Manor Racing-run squad this weekend for the WEC Prologue at Circuit Paul Ricard which runs on April 6-7.
