No Jota, no Greaves, no Murphy - it's in the nature of things but still sad to see some familiar names not on the grid.

ELMS 2017

I thought JOTA had been rumoured to be running a two car program a few days back?


Edit: just remembered they are running the two DC cars in WEC my bad

Shame to have lost the likes of Greaves, Jota, Eurasia & Murphy but the addition of Nederland, United Autosports, Graff, Tockwirth etc makes up for it, still a strong grid with some good variety. Who's running the G-Drive entry?

We might see some of them in the AsLMS later in the year, there are a lot of old gen P2s available (mainly Ligiers and BRs).

Beechdean's GTE Aston lineup confirmed as Andrew Howard/Darren Turner/Ross Gunn.

I've been impressed by Gunn in his British GT outings, so it's good to see him stepping up to the GTE car.

Albuquerque as the 3rd driver for United Autosports.
So, Alex Brundle has been overlooked again

(Unless he has something better lined up, which I really hope)

Let's be frank - if all else is equal I'd take a factory driver over a driver who isn't. It sucks for Alex to be passed over again, but it's not hard to understand the decision from what we know here.

But hopefully he has found himself something more substantial and high-profile. For all the talk of how sportscars is the go-to place for young single-seater drivers, it is becoming increasingly odd to see somewhat as good as Brundle miss out.

I understand what you are saying, but how much of a factory driver is Albuquerque really?
How many races did he really do for Audi over all these years?
7 ?

Not that I don't rate him of course, but I think - in these circumstances - the name 'factory driver' is somewhat overrated.

... besides, Alex Brundle is - or should be - a known quality for them (UA).

I can see that argument, particularly when some manufacturers (of which Audi are one) keep drivers on partly to stop them jumping ship, but he was good enough for Audi to rely on him consistently, and for them to keep him sharp in various LMP2 cars. He also has experience with AER for what it's worth, so while he may not be known to UA they can call on the testimony of (at least?) three well-regarded teams and a factory.
