Alex Lynn is very close to reaching an agreement to be
pilot G-Drive in the WEC. After seeing as your options in LMP1 and GTE-Pro
went down in the last instance, the uk aims to be part of the team
managed by TDS Racing ahead of the season 2017 of the World
Resistance. In fact, Lynn has already been uploaded to the Oreca 07-Gibson team
during the test that Dunlop has organized in Motorland Aragon for all the
formations that use their tires in the WEC. There he shared work with
the team drivers Roman Rusinov and Pierre Thiriet.
No place in the team Williams F1, Alex Lynn set the goal of competing as a factory rider in the WEC, or what is the same, get on a LMP1 or GTE of the GTE-Pro. The british rang with strength for Toyota and was a very close call at the Aston Martin Racing, structure with which even shared the track in Alcañiz. However, none of the two talks came to fruition. All in all, the option of having a complete program and to dispute the 24 Hours of Le Mans with a LMP2-new generation is attractive enough to opt for G-Drive Racing.
In fact, the seat of G-Drive Racing has been very coveted and various reports indicate that Vitaly Petrov, Will Stevens and Pastor Maldonado have been candidates to be able to occupy it. All in all, if you finally Alex Lynn becomes the pilot of G-Drive, it will be in one of the pilots more busy on the international scene. However, played the 12 Hours of Sebring and Petit Le Mans with Wayne Taylor Racing, the 24 Hours of Nürburgring with BMW and surely the double ePrix New York as a substitute for one of the pilots of DS Virgin. This fact would force him to miss the 6 Hours of Nürburgring as the sole shock in your calendar.
