After confirming their Blancpain Endurance Series entry last month, Rowe Racing has revealed its drivers for the 2015 season.

Stef Dusseldorp, Klaus Graf and Nico Bastian will race the No. 99 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 in the Pro Cup, competing with no less than 22 other teams.

Dusseldorp raced for HTP Motorsport and Hexis Racing in recent years, but with HTP switching to Bentley the Dutchman decided to move to Rowe Racing.

“I am happy to compete in the Blancpain Endurance Series this season. It’s the strongest GT3 championship in Europe and it’s great to be part of it again, this time with Rowe Racing,” said Dusseldorp.

“My teammates Nico Bastian and Klaus Graf have a lot of experience, so we have a strong lineup. Given the competition in the championship that’s an absolute must though,” added Dusseldorp.

Bastian and Graf were part of the Rowe Racing lineup in previous years, both drivers taking podium finishes in the Nürburgring 24 Hours. Graf also raced for the team in the 2013 running of the Spa 24 Hours.

“We are delighted that we have got an experienced driver like Stef on board for our team,” said team principal Hans-Peter Naundorf.

“He is the perfect addition to Nico and Klaus. I am confident that the three will be able to be among the front runners in the Blancpain Endurance Series right away.”
