Alex Brundle: “I’m delighted to be driving for G-Drive Racing in the final 6 races of the FIA WEC, especially with the incredibly strong package that the team has put together for this season including the massive experience of Rene and the pace of Roman. The Nürburgring event can’t come soon enough and it’s fantastic to be re-joining this global series.”
