Rao, currently 3rd in the LMP2 drivers’ points classification, moves from Signatech Alpine Matmut as the French team now has just one Alpine A470 on the entry list.  Hanley returns to the WEC for the fourth time this season, and with a fourth different team, after consistently showing good pace in Belgium, at Le Mans, and in Germany.

The team’s President and Sporting Director Graeme Lowdon commented: "As we head off to Mexico, we have some driver changes in CEFC Manor TRS Racing as a result of re-organisation following completion of the European leg of the Championship.  

“We are very happy to have Matt Rao with us again.  We really enjoyed racing with him in WEC last season and it's really good to see him return to the team.  We are also very happy to welcome Ben Hanley, who has shown his speed in LMP2 already this season and we are really looking forward to going racing with him."
