Delta-ADR is set for an expansion that will include select rounds of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, as well as a planned return to the FIA World Endurance Championship with two cars.

The British squad, which has run under the G-Drive Racing banner in this year’s WEC season, announced Thursday a new long-term partnership agreement with the Millennium Development fund, which will see Fabien Giroix join forces with the team, beginning with this month’s Six Hours of Bahrain.

The Gulf Racing Middle East team principal will team with Craig Dolby and Robbie Kerr in the season-finale, with plans to compete in the entire WEC season next year, as well as rounds of the TUDOR Championship with an Oreca 03 Nissan.

“The agreement with Millennium Development starts in Bahrain and will be the corner stone of our racing programs over the next few years,” said Delta-ADR team manager Simon Dowson.

“Fabien and I have worked closely together to be able to deliver a successful business strategy that goes far beyond the team’s racing activities.”

Delta-ADR, meanwhile, plans to kick off its 2014 season in the Rolex 24, fielding a Daytona Prototype in association with Action Express Racing.

Delta’s engineering firm has been commissioned by Coyote to produce a generic bodywork package for its DP chassis, which will likely debut in the TUDOR Championship season-opener in January.

An additional outing for the Coyote DP is possible for Sebring, alongside its Oreca 03 Nissan for Giroix.
