Having secured victory in both LMP2 and LM3 classes in the opening round of the Asian Le Mans Series in Zhuhai, China, Eurasia Motorsport are aiming to continue the momentum this coming weekend (2-4 December) in the 4H of Fuji.
Eurasia Motorsport will once again support both Jackie Chan DC Racing and Wineurasia, the latter already having confirmed that William Lok will be joined by Aidan Read and Scott Andrews at the wheel of the #99 Ligier LMP3.
Jackie Chan DC Racing will again field Zhuhai winners Ho-Pin Tung and Gustavo Menezes in the #35 Oreca 03R Nissan LMP2 and will be joined for this event by Thomas Laurent who won the LMP3 class with Eurasia last year.
James Winslow and David Cheng team up once again to pilot the #1 Jackie Chan DC Racing Ligier LMP3 with experienced Super GT 300 driver Hiroki Yoshida joining the line-up.
“In China we had great pace and used great strategy top secure wins in each class with DC Racing, something we’re obviously looking to repeat this weekend,” explained Team Principal Mark Goddard. “We welcome Aidan, Scott, Thomas and Hiroki and I’m sure that with the package we have, we can again be at the sharp end of the field once again.”
The second round of the Asian Le Mans Series at Fuji Speedway takes place 2-4 December, with the four-hour race starting Sunday at 12.15 local time.
