Will Stevens to race with G-Drive racing at Fuji

G-Drive Racing will welcome Will Stevens back to the team for the 6 Hours of Fuji on October 16

2016-07-24-Sunday-0056 Stevens, who race for the team at the Le Mans 24 Hours in June will join Roman Rusinov and Alex Brundle in the No.26 G-Drive racing ORECA- 05-Nissan LMP2 car at the Japanese venue.

The move comes after René Rast was recalled by Audi Sport to compete in the final DTM event at Hockenheim which clashes with the seventh round of the 2016 FIA World Endurance Championship at Fuji. Rast was loaned to G-Drive Racing at the start of the 2016 season.

Stevens has made a strong start to his endurance racing career after switching from Formula One at the start of the current season. The 25-year old enjoyed a successful first ever Le Mans 24 hours with G-Drive Racing in June when he and teammates Rusinov and Rast finished a close second in LMP2.

Hailing from Walton-On-Thames in Surrey, UK, Stevens is also competing in the Blancpain GT Series this year, sharing an Audi R8 LMS with Rene Rast.

The G-Drive Racing WEC campaign has so far seen the No.26 ORECA 05-Nissan display superb pace with four pole positions and three podium placings.
