Delta-ADR returns to World Endurance Championship for 2013

The newly-renamed Delta-ADR team that finished second in LMP2 in last year's World Endurance Championship is returning to the series in 2013.
Silverstone-based Delta-ADR submitted an entry for the WEC, which includes the Le Mans 24 Hours in June, ahead of Wednesday's closing date.
It plans to again run a solo ORECA-Nissan 03 and has retained Australian John Martin to lead the driver line-up.
Delta-ADR team manager Simon Dowson, whose team won P2 in three of the eight WEC rounds in 2012, said: "The aim is to go one better than last year and win the P2 championship.
"We are looking to put together a deal with two more quick drivers who are capable of doing that and aiming to make another step forward with the ORECA-Nissan package."
The change in name from ADR-Delta follows a firming up of the relationship between engineering consultancy Delta Motorsport and Alan Docking Racing, Dowson explained.
"Last year was really a collaboration, but now we are entering into a true partnership with a jointly-owned race operation," he said. "This gives a racing arm to the engineering businesses of Delta Motorsport and ADR."
