MP Motorsport announced Sunday that Aston Martin Racing works driver Darren Turner will complete the team’s lineup for next month’s Total 24 Hours of Spa.

Turner will drive the No. 38 Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 alongside the team’s regular Blancpain Endurance Series drivers Mark Poole, Richard Abra and Joe Osborne.

It will be Turner’s third 24 Hours race in just over a month time.

“I’m really looking forward to the Spa 24 Hours, as it’s always a great event,” Turner said. “I’ve worked with Mark and Richard on a few test days this year, which have gone really well and it will be good to race with them at Spa, along with Joe.

“There’s no reason why we can’t get a good result at Spa. Everything is in place: we all have a lot of miles in the Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 under our belts, we just need to keep calm and keep it on the black stuff.”

Newly appointed Aston Martin works driver Abra added:  “The 24 Hours of Spa is a race I’ve always wanted to do so I’m thrilled to be going there this year, and with a great team

“We’ve scored great results in the Blancpain Endurance Series already this year, and I believe we can continue that form at Spa.

“Of course, you need a bit of luck to do well in endurance racing, but everything we can be prepared for, we’ll be prepared for. Bringing Darren in is fantastic, and it’s a sign that this team is only moving forward. He’s one of the world’s best GT drivers – I’m really pleased to work with him again.”
