Karun Chandhok returns to the race tracks

Karun Chandhok returns behind the wheel, when European Le Mans Series races at Red Bull Ring this weekend.

He will drive Murphy Prototypes #48 together with Guglielmo Berlotti and Sean Doyle.

Chandhok has previously been with the team at Le Mans 2013-2015 plus selected rounds of ELMS and FIA WEC for the team. Before that he did Formula 1, GP2 and Formula 3 amongst other series.

In the 2014-15 season he participated for Mahindra Racing.

So far this year the Indian driver has only done some show runs for Williams at Goodwood Festival Of Speed in old Formula 1 cars, but this weekend it will be a real action again.

Guglielmo Berlotti has participated in Speed Euroseries, so this weekend will be his biggest event so far.

Sean Doyle will be doing his 3rd race for Murphy Prototypes and is the only man in the car who has done the whole ELMS season for the team so far.

The team hasn’t had the best of seasons until now, where they have only scored 1,5 points for the championship. 2 races with a lack of pace plus technical difficulties hampered their progress. It will be interesting to see if this weekend will be a turning point for the team.
