Factory BMW Motorsport driver Alexander Sims will join Ecurie Ecosse Powered By Black Bull’s Total 24 Hours of Spa line-up for the blue riband event of this year’s Blancpain Endurance Series on July 26/27. The 26-year-old completes the Scottish outfit’s driver crew of Olly Bryant, Andrew Smith and Alasdair McCaig at the classic Belgian event. The Briton is no stranger to the Total 24 Hours of Spa having contested the race as a works McLaren driver last season.
Alexander Sims: “I'm extremely excited about joining the Ecurie Ecosse line-up for the Total 24 Hours of Spa this year. I know the team very well from our British GT campaign together and am confident that we’ll be competing right at the front in Belgium. Any 24-hour race is extremely demanding on the car, team and drivers, but Spa has to be one of the most competitive as well. The Pro-Am category looks typically strong, so I’m really looking forward to working with Olly, Andrew, Alasdair and the whole team in trying to fight for the win.”
