Merhi returns to WEC

Roberto Merhi returns to the FIA World Endurance Championship, when Round 6 of the 2019/20 season will be run at Spa Francorchamps in Belgium.

The Spaniard will race for Eurasia Motorsport, just like he did in the Asian Le Mans Series 2019/20 season. The team will use the Spa race as a warm-up for the 24 Hours of Le Mans in September, which they got an entry for.

Merhi will be racing in Belgium with Daniel Gaunt and Nobuya Yamanaka, who are two of the designated drivers for Le Mans. Shane van Gisbergen is on the Le Mans entry list as one of the drivers, but that was with the original June race in place. He has a V8 Supercars programme, which is an absolute first priority. It is not yet confirmed if he will do Le Mans for the team.

Roberto Merhi previously raced in the FIA WEC for Manor, when they raced in LMP2 back in 2016. He jumped back into single-seater racing again following that season with Formula 2 amongst that racing, as well as raced in the Asian Le Mans Series, as previously mentioned.

The 6 Hours of Spa Francorchamps will be run on 15 August 2020.
