CEFC TRSM Racing has announced that Alex Brundle will race with the team in the 2018/19 FIA WEC ‘Super Season’, competing with Oliver Rowland in the #6 G60-LT-P1.
The third driver in the #6 car is set to be announced in due course. This news means that there are three seats left for the team’s two-car effort.
Brundle, who competed with Jackie Chan DC Racing last year in the LMP2 ranks, moves into LMP1 for the first time this season. He’s looking forward to the new challenge that the top WEC category presents.
“I would like to thank CEFC TRSM Racing for this opportunity, it is great to work with TRS again,” said Brundle. “I have been lucky enough to enjoy success at the highest level in LMP2 cars, both at Le Mans and in the WEC so I feel ready and excited to make the natural progression to LMP1.
“I can’t wait to experience the extra power and grip of the top endurance class for the new WEC Superseason and I’m looking forward to getting started on this new challenge.”
CEFC TRS Racing’s team principal Graeme Lowdon added: “We are very happy to have Alex join the team for this season We have raced alongside him for a few years so have seen first-hand his talents. We have been in contact for a long time so it is good to have him on board.
“It is a new challenge for us with LMP1 this year but we are looking forward to getting the season started.”
