Gulf Racing UK has confirmed the driver lineup for its first season of the FIA World Endurance Championship, which will see team veterans Adam Carroll and Ben Barker join the previously nominated Mike Wainwright behind the wheel of the team’s Porsche 911 RSR.

Former GP2 and A1 GP star Carroll will be taking part in his third season with the British squad, which moves from the European Le Mans Series, while Porsche Supercup ace Barker returns having raced with the team in 2014.

“We are very pleased to welcome Adam and Ben back to the team for 2016, driving alongside Mike,” said team manager Matt Beers.

“Both drivers are part of the Gulf Racing family, having driven for us in recent times, and we know they are both a safe pair of hands with exceptional pace, it’s a great line-up for our championship campaign and I’m looking forward to working with them again.”

The trio will compete in the GTE-Am class, which is made up of six full-season entries this year.
