The KC Motor Group Ltd. (KCMG) announced yesterday that Richard Bradley will drive for the team for the full WEC season in the LMP2 class. The Briton will compete alongside with his team-mate from last season, Matt Howson in the new ORECA 05.
For KCMG, the 2014 WEC season was very positive. The team won three races last season but would like to improve to challenging for the title in 2015.
Bradley has been part of the KCMG team for two consecutive seasons. In 2013 he drove a full season in the Super Formula championship. In the same year he first competed alongside Tsugio Matsuda and Hiroshi Koizumi in the 6 Hours of Fuji. Since then, Bradley has been part of three LMP2 wins in the WEC and one win in the Asian Le Mans Series.
In an interview with KCMG, the young Briton said: “I’m delighted to continue my relationship with KCMG for this year’s World Endurance Championship and I’m particularly looking forward to making my second start in Le Mans. Having won three races last season, we go into the new season with a strong chance of contending for the LMP2 title, driving the new ORECA 05. 2015 looks very promising and I can;t wait to get started.
