Roberto Merhi is the final name not only in the Manor WEC team for 2016, but for the full season driver line-up for the Championship.
The 25 year old Spaniard has previously raced and achieved podiums with Manor in Formula 3 in 2009.
John Booth, Team Principal: “It has been a very exciting week with the debut of our ORECA 05 LMP2 and also completing our driver line up. It is great to welcome Roberto back to Manor.
“Roberto is a talented driver with plenty of speed and experience. I know that he will fit in straight away having worked with many of the team before and also been a team mate to Will Stevens last year.”
Roberto Merhi: “I’m really excited to be part of this new exciting chapter with Manor. It is a great opportunity to work with Graeme, John and the team again.
This is my first time at endurance racing, LMP2 is a very strong championship and I am looking forward to getting into the ORECA 05 LMP2 and seeing what we can all achieve together.”
DSC believes that Merhi will complete the line-up in the #45 car for the 8 x 6 Hour races, this car not listed for the Le Mans 24 Hours.
