Eurasia Motorsport Team Principal, Mark Goddard, says…

On winning the AsLMS 3 Hours of Malaysia…

“Sean (Gelael) and Antonio (Giovinazzi) did an incredible job and are proving they are world-class drivers, but the Jagony Ayam by Eurasia Oreca 03R Nissan LMP2 prototype also ran faultlessly, giving us a perfect result.”

On the difficulties with the #99 car…

“We had a coil failure on the first lap of the race, so the #99 car ended up as a V7. It was just not our day with the #99 car, as it ultimately retired with a driveshaft failure. Tacksung Kim and William Lok both drove really well and they have made vast improvements since the first race at Fuji.”

On Sean Geleal and Antonio Giovinazzi returning to race with Eurasia Motorsport…

“It’s always great to see our graduates doing well as they move up the motorsport ladder and even better when they return to race with us again. As they were trained by Eurasia, it’s no surprise they performed so well.”

On Aidan Read’s remarkable triple victory…

“Since the first day Aidan (Read) tested with us at Clark in the Philippines we knew he had great potential and this was reinforced by his performance last season.”

“As often happens during the early years of a driver’s career, Aidan (Read) has made a big step forward over the off-season and after his performance this weekend we are fully confident he can continue his winning form in the 2016 Formula Masters China Series.”

On Eurasia Motorsport’s 2016 programme…

“It’s an exciting year for Eurasia Motorsport, with a full European Le Mans Series (ELMS) campaign with Kevin Pu Jun Jin, Tristan Gommendy and Nick de Bruijn in a new Oreca 05 LMP2.

“Add in the new Asian Le Mans Series Sprint Cup and the full 2016-17 AsLMS and it’s going to be great year. We are also now confident of a competitive season in the Formula Masters China Series (FMCS) with Aidan Read. These are exciting times for the team.”
