OAK confirms #24 line-up

1 March 2013

OAK Racing has confirmed the driver line-up for half of its entry into the FIA World Endurance Championship this season.

The French team will field two Morgan-badged, Nissan-powered cars in the LMP2 class again during the year ahead and has revealed the three drivers who will share driving duties at the wheel of the #24 machine.

Oliver Pla remains onboard for another season while Alex Brundle has agreed a deal for a full campaign having joined the team for the events in Bahrain and Brazil last year. David Heinemeier Hansson - who drove for the team at Spa, Le Mans and Silverstone last season alongside outings in the ALMS – completes the line-up.

“Our first crew to be announced already has a strong relationship from working together in 2012. Obviously this is an excellent starting point,” team principal Sébastien Philippe said. “Olivier is very fast and experienced while David demonstrated last season that he is amongst the very best of the silver-rated drivers. Judging by the level he has reached in such a short space of time I'm sure he still has much room for improvement.

“Meanwhile Alex is a young, talented driver in the making. Our car is also very powerful so we begin the year expecting to challenge for victories.”

The team will reveal the line-up for the #35 entry in due course.
