Richard Bradley will return to KCMG’s FIA World Endurance Championship program, the team confirmed Wednesday.
The 23-year-old Englishman, who played a starring role in the Hong Kong-based squad’s three LMP2 class wins last year, will join the already confirmed Matt Howson in the brand-new Oreca 05 Nissan entry.
“Having won three races last season, we go into the new season with a strong chance of contending for the LMP2 title, driving the new ORECA 05,” Bradley said. “2015 looks very promising and I can’t wait to get started.”
Bradley has been part of the team’s efforts for the last two years, having also driven for KCMG in Super Formula in 2013.
“One of Richard’s strong points as a driver is his pace in the LMP2, which has contributed in major ways to KCMG’s success in 2014,” said KCMG FIA WEC team manager Erich Kolb.
“We are delighted to have him once again represent the team alongside Matt at La Sarthe and for the entire season of WEC.
“2015 will present new challenges and we are looking forward to conquering each confidently as we transition from the ORECA 03R to the new 05 LMP2.”
The team’s third driver will be announced at a later date.
