Eurasia Motorsport today announced the driver line-up for their ORECA 03R Nissan LMP2 prototype in the 2015 Asian Le Mans Series (AsLMS).
Full series participants will be Hong Kong driver William Lok, Korean Tacksung Kim and 24 Hours of Le Mans LMP2 victor and long-standing Eurasia racer, Richard Bradley.
However, the clash between the first round of the Asian Le Mans Series at Fuji Speedway with the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) 6 Hours of Fuji (10-11 October) precludes Bradley from racing with Eurasia Motorsport and Tristan Gommendy has subsequently been drafted in to lead the Asia-based team’s attack on the AsLMS season-opener in Japan.
Both Lok and Kim have driven for Eurasia in other series. Loc has raced and won for the team in the 2011 Lamborghini Super Trofeo and this year’s Formula Masters China Series (FMCS) while Tacksung Kim drove for the team in the Korean leg of the 2014 AsLMS at Inje Speedium.
“William and Tack are both putting a lot of effort into their preparations for this year’s Asian Le Mans Series and I am confident they can both do an excellent job as our bronze drivers.” said Team Principal, Mark Goddard. “We are excited to have Tristan (Gommendy) on-board for the opening round at Fuji Speedway.
“He is also arguably the fastest LMP2 driver around over a single lap, although I am sure Richard (Bradley) would dispute that!
“We know we are going to have a tough battle to win in Fuji, but we have all the ingredients in place to take a victory.”
