Alex Brundle will do the rest of the season for G-Drive Racing in FIA World Endurance Championship.
The British racing driver has got the seat after Nathanael Berthon was fired ahead of Le Mans. The team had already replaced him by Will Stevens, who usually drivers for Manor Racing. Stevens will now be back in the Manor Racing number 45, so that leaves the seat open for Brundle.
Alex Brundle is a quite experienced sportscar racer. The former GP3 racer has had long connections with OAK Racing, where he completed a WEC season in 2013 and finished 2nd in the championship. In 2015 he was put on the sidelines due to health reasons, but already fall 2015 he was back in a race car and as speedy as always. That gave him a seat with United Autosport in LMP3 in ELMS, where he currently is leading the championship.
Next time we will see FIA WEC on the track is in 3 weeks, when the cars roll out at the Nürburgring.
