Bruno Senna has been announced as the final driver in United Autosports’ driver lineup for its two-car Rolex 24 at Daytona lineup.

The reigning FIA World Endurance Championship LMP2 champion will race alongside Will Owen, Hugo de Sadeleer and Paul Di Resta in one of the team’s Ligier JS P217 Gibsons.

Fernando Alonso, Lando Norris and Phil Hanson will compete in a second car, meanwhile.

“I’m very excited to join United Autosports on this challenge for Daytona,” said Senna.

“It’s an incredibly accomplished team and with the experience from 2017, great technical talent, as well as the incredibly strong driver line-up, we should be up for a good fight right from the start!”

Added team owner and managing director Richard Dean: “I’m really pleased to welcome Bruno to the team for the Daytona 24 Hours. He will be great added value to the team as he has prototype and Daytona experience.

“We’ve taken our time to put the right line ups together for both cars and I’ve think we have a great balance of speed, skill and experience to head to Daytona ready for the challenge.”
