Andy Meyrick will make his return to the Total 24 Hours of Spa this year, driving the Team Parker Racing Bentley Continental GT3 in the Pro-Am Cup.

The former Bentley factory driver will tackle the Belgian enduro for the sixth time after missing last year’s race.

While he hasn’t won the race with Bentley, he did pick up Blancpain GT Series victories at Silverstone and Circuit Paul Ricard while driving for the factory M-Sport squad.

Meyrick will join full-season drivers Seb Morris, Derek Pierce and Rob Smith in the No. 31 Bentley at Spa.

“Really excited to be racing at Spa again this year as I believe it’s the toughest 24-hour race in the world,” he said. “To be there with Team Parker Racing and driving a Bentley is fantastic.

“The team have had a great deal of success so far this season with the current driver line-up and I look forward to joining them and taking on the challenge.”

Team Principal Stuart Parker added: “We’re very pleased to have Andy back with us for Spa this year.

“Andy is a talented driver and with his experience of the Bentley and that he knows and gets on well with our team, he is a great addition for the race.”

Meyrick has been competing mainly in the Michelin Le Mans Cup and GT4 European Series in recent seasons.
