Dragon Racing has announced that Sebastien Bourdais will return to the team for the 2013 championship.
The four-time Champ Car World Series champion competed in 11 races for Dragon last season, which featured a switch from Lotus to Chevrolet power for Jay Penske’s operation. This decision forced Bourdais and British driver Katherine Legge to share the team’s No. 7 machine for the rest of the year, with Bourdais handling road/street courses and Legge running on ovals.
Bourdais’ top finish was a fourth-place run at Mid-Ohio. He also collected Lotus’ lone top-10 finish in 2012, a ninth-place effort at Barber Motorsports Park early in the campaign.
