Fernando Alonso will return to the 24 Hours of Daytona next year with the Wayne Taylor Racing team.
Two-time Formula One champion and regular competitor in the FIA World Endurance Championship Kamui Kobayashi were named drivers for the January 26-27 race at Daytona International Speedway on Tuesday. Jordan Taylor and Renger van der Zande will join Wayne Taylor Racing in the number 10 Cadillac.
It will be the second year in a row at Daytona for Alonso, who retired from F1 last weekend. The Spaniard competed last year and finished 13th due to a mechanical problem.
In June he was part of the winning team of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Alonso had already announced a return in May to the Indianapolis 500, in his quest to win all the top motorsports competitions in the world. Ap
