ORECA have tweeted out the first pictures of one of the pair of ORECA 05 Nissans prepped for the Jackie Chan DC Racing squad, bound for the 2017/18 Asian Le Mans Series.
The Asian based series sees the previous spec of LMP2 cars compete for the overall win with the newer Gibson engined cars not eligible until the 2019/20 season. The coming season is set to see a much increased LMP2 entry from last year’s full season quartet.
ORECA are understood to have restarted 05 production for this programme.
Both cars are being shaken down at Paul Ricard today ahead of being shipped out to China for the first round of the Series in late October t Zhuhai.
As with the team’s FIA WEC effort the Asian Le Mans Series campaign will be supported by Jota Sport.
The team have entered both ORECAs for the full season alongside a Ligier JSP3 in LMP3.
