Team Manager Matt Beers: ‘Dan did a fantastic job for us in 2014 driving alongside Stuart and Roald in the Aston, at Red Bull Ring he lead the race for 2 hrs and really showed what he could do, he is a consistently quick and reliable driver who has great feedback, it made total sense to have him in the Porsche for this round where we need to secure a solid finish.’
Dan Brown: ‘Im really looking forward to driving the Porsche at the Red Bull Ring and being back in the ELMS. Gulf Racing are a top level team and its always a pleasure to drive for them. I need to say a big thank you to Mike, Matt and Owen for choosing me to fill the seat and I hope I can keep their championship challenge on-track.’
