G-Drive Racing Confirm Aurus 01 Gibson Effort In 2019 ELMS & Le Mans 24 Hours

ORECA 07 rebadged with Russian luxury car maker

DSC reported last week Here that we expected an announcement that the G-Drive Racing team looked set to launch an LMP2 effort badged with Aurus, the Russian manufacturer of the ‘Senat’ limousine/ luxury saloon, the basis of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s State Limousine.

That plan has now been revealed with a video released on Instagram – sadly at present in Russian only (below), confirming that the team is to enter their #26 ELMS and Le Mans 24 Hours effort as an Aurus 01 Gibson, G-Drive having undertaken the necessary measures to re-homologate their ORECA 07 in exactly the same fashion as Signatech have long achieved with the Alpine brand on their ORECA 03s, 05s and 07.

The car will be both badged, and heavily branded with the Aurus brand, as part of the launch of the Senat into the European marketplace.
