Dale Coyne Racing to Sign Bremer

Ronnie Bremer will sign for Dale Coyne Racing for the rest of the season

Dale Coyne Racing to Sign Bremer

Dale Coyne confirmed to Autosport-Atlas that he is in the process of signing the Dane and will formally announce the deal this afternoon.

Bremer will be the sixth driver to pilot the number 19 car this season. Scot Ryan Dalziel drove the car last weekend at Toronto and finished ninth and was expected to continue for the rest of the season with Coyne.

However Bremer's experience this season has been the prime mover in the deal. He was replaced at HVM Racing last weekend by Alex Sperafico after sponsorship woes but has been offered a lifeline by Coyne as he does not require funding for the drive.

Coyne told Autosport-Atlas: "Ryan did a great job at Toronto - and if it was January we would stick with him. However we're in the middle of the season.

"Ronnie is a talented driver and is 13th in the points. He has experience this season. This is a driving decision and not based on money. He ran out of money at HVM but he doesn't need to bring a budget to us. He drove well for them and is 13th in the points.

"We have some details to work through but hopefully it will be for the rest of the season."
