JRM Racing Enter Le Mans 24 Hours

But no full 2013 FIA WEC plans

JRM Racing today confirmed an entry has been posted for their Honda HPD ARX 03a for the 2013 Le Mans 24 Hours but in doing so also confirmed that the team has not entered the 2013 FIA WEC.

DSC will be catching up with JRM’s James Rumsey in the coming days but for now the team’s announcement has the following offering from him:

‘Le Mans 24 Hours is the highlight of the endurance calendar and brings greater opportunities for brand visibility than any other event. In our first-ever Le Mans we finished in sixth overall, with very little running beforehand, and we are extremely excited about what we can do in our second year. We remain open to competing in events of the World Endurance Championship or other sportscar series, and we have a number of options we are pursuing, but for the moment our goal is to work on securing the long-term partnerships required to enable us to compete and succeed in the world’s most famous motor race.
‘Additionally, we will take our experience and successes from last season, and plug it straight into our customer support programme for the Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3. This will be of enormous benefit to our clients and partner teams, and we look forward to this latest stage of the JRM Group.’

That’s disappointing but not altogether surprising news in a season that is already seeing budgets squeezed as never before.
