KCMG confirm Richard Bradley and Matt Howson for WEC and Le Mans

The KC Motorgroup has confirmed that Richard Bradley and Matt Howson will race for the team in the 2014 FIA World Endurance Championship and the Le Mans 24 Hours.

Bradley, who raced for KCMG in the 2013 Super Formula series, helped claimed KCMG’s second Asian Le Mans Series victory at Fuji, whilst also taking part in the Six Hours of Fuji in the WEC for the team.

Howson, however, has raced for the team since 2007, with the Brit making his, and KCMG’s, debut in the WEC at the Six Hours of Silverstone last season, and also raced for the team at Le Mans last year.

“I am delighted to be able to join KCMG for this year’s World Endurance Championship. After the team’s strong showing in the 24 Hours of Le Mans and WEC rounds at Silverstone and Fuji last year, we can be confident of having a good season ahead,” said Bradley.

“I’m looking forward to working with Matt, Maarten and the whole KCMG crew. More than anything, I can’t wait to kick off our campaign in front of my home crowd at Silverstone in April.”

Howson also commented, saying: “Taking part in the Le Mans 24 Hours in 2013 was a life-changing experience and the fact I am involved again with KCMG on a full assault of the FIA WEC championship feels like a massive achievement.

“It’ll be a steep learning curve but we have a strong team this season and more experience than last year so we have high expectations. I’ve been with KCMG since 2007 through Formula 3 so the time feels right to take on a world championship together with them.”
