We’ll have more from DSC’s visit to Oreca next week but for now here’s an intriguing piece of news.
Amongst the work underway in a busy assembly shop was a brand new Oreca 05 Coupe, the third car in the production run destined for “an existing Oreca customer.”
A wee bit of detective work soon established that the car is set to be the second 05 acquired by Paul Ip’s KCMG outfit.
More interestingly still the car is set to be delivered in the weeks before the Le Mans 24 Hours where the team have a second entry, currently second in the reserve list behind the Riley Technologies GTE Am Viper.
Beyond a potential Le Mans outing the car is set to contest an as yet unannounced programme of selected races in the FIA WEC.
The team’s lead car, entered for the full FIA WEC meanwhile is set to be a big fan favourite with a stunning electric blue livery.
