Alex Brundle will get his first taste of the Daytona International Speedway this weekend in the Roar before the 24.
23-year old Alex Brundle will be driving the Muscle Milk Pickett Racing entry at the 24 Hours of Daytona, the season opener for the new TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.
Brundle joins Lucas Luhr and Klaus Graf in the number 6 ORECA Nissan.
Teams arrived at Daytona for the Roar before the 24 test which takes place this weekend.
“The place is mega,” Brundle told SportsCar365.net.
“I didn’t really quite clock the scale of the place, probably because I’ve never been to an oval circuit before, other than Rockingham in the U.K. The scale of this place is incredible. I can’t wait to get it out there, really.”
Brundle has spent the past couple seasons running in the GP3 series, and last year with OAK Racing, ending up second overall in the World Endurance Championship.
The Brit will be driving a Nissan powered machine, something he is quite used to, but will have to get a handle on the ORECA 03, a chassis he has never piloted in his career.
“It’s another experience and another car,” he said.
“It all adds to the body and wealth of the experience you have, which is really important.
