Oak Enter Asian Le Mans Series

OAK Racing is to enter a single Morgan LM P2 in the Asian Le Mans Series. The Onroak Automotive designed and built prototype will contest all six rounds of the inaugural campaign carrying the French team’s traditional pink and black livery, as well as its ‘lucky number’ #24.

Its AsLMS commitments will run parallel to the team’s existing FIA WEC programme that sees a pair of Morgan LM P2s contesting every round. A third car has also been granted entry for the Le Mans 24 Hours in June together with the KCMG entered Morgan Nissan that will also contest the full AsLMS. 

The team’s driver line-up for the event is due to be announced shortly.

Sébastien Philippe, OAK Racing Team Principal:

“The Asian Le Mans Series represents an interesting challenge for a French outfit. In this first season of the championship, which I’m sure has a bright future, OAK Racing will be challenging as a team. This commitment also extends to our customers. We want to offer them our experience and support of this type of competition to enable them to succeed as much as possible.

We recognise that the culture of sports-prototype racing in Asia is only just beginning and this is one reason for offering such a strong commitment to our customers. Asia is also a place that I have personally had the chance to experience and enjoy, as much of my racing career took place on the continent. Meanwhile, the team has always maintained a special relationship with Asia having successfully engaged in all championships and events organised there by the ACO. What’s more we were also the first to offer a Chinese driver an opportunity to participate at the Le Mans 24 Hours. That was back in 2008 when, aged 24, Cong Fu Cheng not only made his endurance racing debut at the wheel of an LM P2 prototype but also finished third at the legendary event. This next chapter continues that commitment.”
