Alex Lynn has been confirmed as an Aston Martin Racing factory driver and as part of the team’s FIA World Endurance Championship lineup.
The announcement was made at the launch of the new Vantage GTE on Tuesday, with the British driver joining the team’s existing full-season drivers.
As previously revealed by Sportscar365, Lynn had been tipped to join the British manufacturer after having taken part in multiple tests with the team, including a recent endurance test at Sebring.
The 24-year-old made five WEC starts this season with G-Drive Racing and won the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring as part of Wayne Taylor Racing’s lineup.
He joins 24 Hours of Le Mans GTE-Pro class winners Darren Turner and Jonny Adam as well as Nicki Thiim and Marco Sorensen in the lineup.
Driver combinations and exact details of the team’s WEC entry are yet to be announced.
Lynn will also compete in the full FIA Formula E Championship with DS Virgin Racing although there are no clashes scheduled between Formula E and WEC, unlike in recent years.
