Joel Camathias will make his return to the FIA World Endurance Championship, having been confirmed Wednesday as the third and final driver in KCMG’s Porsche 911 RSR in the GTE-Am class.
The 35-year-old Swiss driver will join Christian Reid and Wolf Henzler for all rounds except the 24 Hours of Le Mans, where the Hong Kong team will have at least two different drivers in the car.
Camathias took part in the inaugural season of the WEC in 2012, driving a JWA-Avila Porsche.
“Together with Christian and Wolf, I am sure we can do extremely well,” he said. ”
“Competing in the FIA WEC and the great endurance races throughout the world is the top aspiration of any GT driver.
“I tremendously enjoyed my first experience in the FIA WEC back in 2012 and I really look forward to be part of the series once again.”
After two seasons of LMP2 competition, the Paul Ip-led KCMG squad moves to GTE-Am this year, with a technical alliance from Reid’s Proton Competition squad.
