McLaren test driver signs Jota LMP2 deal
10 January 2013 – Oliver Turvey has signed a deal with Jota Sport to drive alongside Simon Dolan in the team's Zytek-Nissan LMP2 for the 2013 European Le Mans Series campaign. The 25-year-old Briton, a past race winner in the GP2 Series, will continue his role as McLaren's test and development driver throughout the upcoming Formula 1 season.
"I would also like to thank Vodafone McLaren Mercedes for their continued support and allowing me to pursue this alongside my test driver role."
Turvey joined the Woking-based McLaren outfit as a test driver in early 2012, a position he currently holds alongside former DTM Champion Gary Paffett. The Penrith-born driver will remain involved with the McLaren MP4-12C GT3 project.
