Former F1 driver Bruno Senna has secured a factory race seat with the McLaren GT program for the 2015 season.
Senna, who spent the 2014 season racing in WEC, Formula E and the Brazilian Stock Car Championship, will join McLaren factory drivers Alvaro Parente, Rob Bell and Kevin Estre as they contest the Blancpain Endurance Series with VonRyan racing. Senna will be a driver in one of the two McLaren set to contest Blancpain’s new ‘Pro’ class.
“I started winning again in GT racing with Aston, which was something I hadn’t had the chance to do for a few years before that in F1,” Senna told Autosport in a statement.
“It reminded me what I really want to do, it refreshed my memory as to why I go racing — and that is to win races.”
Senna has previously did a one-off event with McLaren at the 2013 Spa 24 Hours where he raced for VonRyan Racing in a McLaren 12C GT3.
The Blancpain Endurance Series will kick off the weekend of March 11 at Paul Ricard.
