Ho-Pin Tung and Jackie Chan DC Racing return to Asian Le Mans Series
Chinese racing drivers Ho-Pin Tung and David Cheng will be joined again at the start of the new season of the Asian Le Mans Series championship which gets underway this weekend in Zhuhai, China. Team co-owner David Cheng and WEC partners Ho-Pin Tung and Thomas Laurent will lead the driver line-up. Le Mans 24 hour-winning Jackie Chan DC Racing x JOTA Sport is turning eastward as it sets its sights on capturing both the LM P2 and LM P3 Asian Le Mans Series championship titles this season. David Cheng is seeking a fourth Asian Le Mans Series title. Jackie Chan DC Racing x JOTA Sport fields two ORECA 05 Nissan LPM2 cars and a single Ligier JS P3 Nissan LMP3 for this season’s campaign.
Cheng has previously found success in the Asian Le Mans Series with championship title wins in the 2013/14 and 2014/15 seasons with Ho-Pin Tung in the LMP2 category, and in 2015/16 in LMP3. With Cheng and Tung at the startig grid in Zhuhai these long-time collaborators will seek fortune just one week prior to the 6 hours of Shanghai, the penultimate race in FIA-WEC this year.
All three Jackie Chan DC Racing x JOTA Sport cars will race in the team’s “auspicious clouds” livery, with partners Tires Plus, Michelin Sport, Spark, B&O Official Flagship Store and Synergie all proudly supporting the Asian Le Mans Series campaign.
