British driver, Richard Bradley, will join Manor for the 2016 FIA World Endurance Championship.
Manor will extend its driver line up for WEC with the addition of 2015 LMP2 winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Richard Bradley.
Richard has extensive experience in both single seater and sports car racing and also benefits from an in-depth knowledge of the ORECA 05 sports car having raced it throughout 2015.
Richard finished joint second in last years’ FIA Endurance Trophy for LMP2 drivers having enjoyed wins at both Le Mans and the Nürburgring.
John Booth, Team Principal
“We are delighted to welcome Richard to Manor for our first season in WEC.
“Richard brings with him substantial experience of endurance racing including winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans. He understands WEC very well having been in the series for the last few seasons and we are looking forward to racing with him in 2016.”
Richard Bradley, Driver
“I am very happy to be joining Manor for the 2016 WEC. It is a project I thought was very interesting when I first heard about it and I am really excited to be working with John, Graeme and all the Manor team.
“Whilst Manor are a new team to endurance racing I believe, with the people and package we have, we should be aiming for race wins from the start and I can't wait for our home race at Silverstone.”
