HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. - MBBS Racing and its affiliate Evosport Engineering today announced that they have named veteran GT driver Craig Stanton as lead driver and team development manager. MBBS Racing is developing an AMG Black Series car for the 2012 World Challenge GT Series.

Stanton will be overseeing 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.

Craig is very uniquely qualified for this new role, having won numerous pro titles in addition to years of testing for manufacturers such as Mercedes Benz/AMG, Porsche, Michelin, Nissan, Infiniti, Yokohama, Continental, Chevrolet, Ford, and Subaru.

"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."
