Kevin Estre joins Abu-Dhabi Proton Racing at COTA

There will be a slight change in the Abu-Dhabi Proton Racing driver's line-up for the upcoming 6 Hours of Circuit of the Americas.

Porsche factory driver Patrick Long will not take part in his home FIA World Endurance Championship round in the United States as he will be competing in the Pirelli World Challenge round of Sonoma.

The American ace will be replaced by another Porsche factory driver, Kevin Estre. The French competed with Porsche North America at both Rolex 24 at Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring as well taking part in the 24 Hours of Le Mans with the Manthey Racing run Porsche Motorsport.

Kevin Estre will join Abu-Dhabi Proton Racing's regulars David Heinemeier Hansson and Khaled Al Qubaisi at the wheel of the #88 Porsche 911 RSR.
