Exciting next step for 2020-2021
- The team will join the 2021 World Endurance Championship, while continuing its European Le Mans Series and Asian Le Mans Series LMP3 programme.
- A new Oreca LMP2 07 will be delivered in December 2020.
- Matt Bell and Naveen Rao join Kuba Smiechowski for the Mobil 1 Twelve hours of Sebring 2020.
Sascha Fassbender (team manager): “We are taking another very exciting next step. Because we knew we wanted to do the WEC, we bought an Oreca LMP2 07. The car will be delivered in December. To prepare for this we did Petit Le Mans in an Oreca and we are going to do Sebring in November, in the same car. We know it is going to be a lot of hard work, but the team is very motivated. We will push on and look forward to getting to know the car.”
Kuba Smiechowski: “I had to get used to the Oreca very quickly at Petit Le Mans and found I really enjoyed racing the car. Obviously, I knew we ordered a new car some time ago and that motivated me enormously. Our next race is Sebring where I will share the car with Matt Bell and Naveen Rao. It will be a busy and hard year for us next year, with hopefully not as many obstacles as we have faced this year.”
