Nissan engine for OAK at Le Mans

OAK Racing to use a Nissan engine in one of its LMP2 cars at Le Mans
OAK Racing has confirmed that it will run a Nissan engine in its #35 Morgan in the Le Mans 24 Hours.

The car - which will be driven by Bas Leinders, Maxime Martin and David Heiemeier Hansson – will also use the engine for the Le Mans test day on 3 June.

Despite the decision to switch to a Nissan engine for the #35, the team's World Endurance Championship-registered LMP2 machine of Jacques Nicolet, Matthieu Lahaye and Olivier Pla will continue to use a Judd powerplant.

“We have taken this decision as both a manufacturer and racing team,” team boss Nicolet said. “It represents an ideal opportunity to fully understand the car's performance equipped with both Judd and Nissan engines during the same race conditions throughout the World Endurance Championship's greatest challenge.

“Our partner team Conquest Endurance will also benefit from this experience as their ALMS programme already combines a Morgan 2012 LMP2 with Nissan's engine.”
