    Bios:
    A new and young addition to the WEC Series this year, Abe has exihibited a very positive outlook on racing. Piloting the new Corvette C7R he looks to get in as much experience as possible while challenging Brian Batiato for the 2016 WEC GT-Am Championship. Abe has experience in other series like IMSA and Le Mans. Piloting many different cars in a number of other series, it is his study of the sport that makes him a threat to win every race weekend as Preperation is his best weapon.

Tom came onto the WEC scene and quickly began to dominate in the 2015 Season with his trusty M3 winning 4 races in the row. This year he teams up with Matthew Spurrell in Factory McLaren sponsored machines of the 888 Race Engineering shop. Toms experience goes all the way back to even before a stint in NASCAR 98'. Early on, Tom found success in the Project Gothem Racing Series, but things became more serious when he entered the Gran Turismo Series. Tom polished his talent in with the Forza Motorsports series in the preceding years before making the transistion to Project Cars.

    Accolades:
    2 time winner in SMS British GT series (Snetterton)
    Bios:
    A product of the UK and their deep racing heritage, Matthew grew up only a short while from Snetterton. As a young lad he would go to the races and hear the engines roar. He was hooked at an early age, which led him into a fast paced world of race. Starting with the TOCA Series, and moving into the Forza Motorsports arena is where he honed his skills while also getting part-time experience behind the wheel of a Forumla 1. He came to RaceDepartment Mid-season in 2015 for the SMS British GT Series and ran very well in his first few races scoring wins at Snetterton. Now residing Stateside, he has put together a team with Factory backing from McLaren, and plans to dominate the World Endurance Challenge.

    Bios:
    Cordell Walker, or "BeetesJuice" as he's better know by is a new face to the series. He has shown to be a very tenacious driver, dominating in NACRA Series winning multiple races in a very well prepared Bentley. He also has been dominent in open wheel recently competing in the Formula 2000 UK Championship. It was his performance in that series that led him to take the challenge and ferocious fight to the WEC series this season, joining forces with EagleThrust Racing to create a formidable team of Corvettes. Expect to see Walker running up front in the rest of the races this as he is a masterful tuner and driver.

    Hometown: Reading, U. K
    Residing in: Toronto, Canada
    RD accolade: SMS Classic F1 World Champion, SMS LMP2 Support Series World Champion
    Bio:
    Hailing from Toronto Canada, Nic is a young phenom that recently busted onto the racing scene. Starting out in Karts, he is very talented and possesses a great deal of car control that lead him to several wins and championships within the Race Department Association. Always a threat to be reckoned with and usually qualifying with great speed, Nic is versatile and can drive just about any car quickly as well as enjoying the occasional recreational past times that make him so mellow. But don't let that "mellow" facade fool you, he's a fierce competitor. Finishing on the podium for the 2015 WEC GT Series Championship he took the Aston Martin GTE to the limits. Now piloting the RUF after a switch out of the Bentley he hopes to make room on his mantle for another Trophy and better his resume at RD.

    Bio:
    Quit a promising racing career in his late teens to join the armed forces, and is now getting back into the swing of things through drift, possible future SCCA races, and now the WEC GT Series. Chris's, knowledge of setups and racecar physics allows him to compete at a high level while also learning the in's and out's of the GT3 Class. Competing in the 2016 World Endurance Challenge, will certainly prove to be a challenge. With the help of fellow teammates at DareDevil Racing, Chris is up to that challenge and hoping for a smooth transition. His car control is already up there with some of the other veterans of the sport.

  9. ***Announcement***
    DareDevil Racing drivers Nic Worsfold and Chris Bowman will be switching to the RUF GT3 effective immediately. DareDevil Racing will have identically prepared cars for Round #4 Hockenheim after signing contract with the German Manufacturer. After extensive contract negotiations with the Bentley Factory Support Team, the car has just not shown the performance that was expected in the earlier rounds, and both parties have agreed to go different directions. The team are hopeful that this is the right move to turn the season around. Sponsor information will be forthcoming in the next few days.

    Bio:
    A young talented driver, that shows a lot of speed and natural ability. After a great start in WEC Season 1, scheduling conflicts prevented him from showing his true potential in the series. Hinton shows great speed at tough tracks like Norschliefe, qualifying 2nd after switching to the RUF, and nearly won at Sonoma. Now back full time in the series Hinton is looking to score some valuable points after switching to the Audi after just one race back in the RUF.
