Former Magnus Racing GT driver Craig Stanton has branched off into running in the SCCA Pirelli World Challenge in 2012. MBBS Racing and its affiliate Evosport Engineering is developing a Mercedes-Benz AMG Black Series car for the season, and Stanton will serve as lead driver and team development manager.
Stanton will oversee all racing operations and acting as the development driver for Evosport Engineering in the further development of their full range of performance products for Mercedes-Benz automobiles.
“I was contacted by the principals of MBBS several months ago with the concept, and everything fell into line,” said Stanton. “In the racing world, sometimes being in the right place at the right time is key. This AMG Black Series is going to be one remarkable racecar. I'm thrilled to be leading the charge for MBBS and representing the Evosport brand.”
Evosport, active since 1999, has specialized in racecar prep, street car service, and the highest-quality performance parts for Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Porsche, and Ferrari vehicles, and worked directly with Black Series vehicles throughout that time frame.
