G-Drive Racing and Roman Rusinov will return to the FIA World Endurance Championship with an Oreca 07 Gibson run by TDS Racing, the team confirmed on Monday.

Rusinov and Pierre Thiriet will be joined by a yet-to-be-announced Pro driver in TDS’ second confirmed Oreca for the WEC LMP2 class.

The French outfit revealed in November that it would run one car under the TDS banner for Emmanuel Collard, Francois Perrodo and Matthieu Vaxiviere.

This marks G-Drive’s third collaboration in as many years, having fielded entries run by OAK Racing in 2015 before working with Jota Sport in both WEC and the European Le Mans Series last year.

The future of the Jota outfit remains unclear following the split from Rusinov’s G-Drive backing, although the team did recently share a picture of an Oreca 07 it has purchased on social media.
