Extreme Speed Motorsports has commenced its 2016 FIA World Endurance Championship plans by announcing an operational and technical partnership with OAK Racing.

Tequila Patron ESM is set to move its WEC base to France and work out of the OAK Racing shop and team owner and driver Scott Sharp is delight to secure the assistance of the French squad.

“Our relationship with OAK Racing has grown over this year,” Sharp said. “They have offered an unparalleled level of support including engineering assistance for the last few races of the FIA WEC.

“We are excited to announce we have increased our partnership for 2016. We will move our European base from the UK to Le Mans, compete with current race cars and equipment, benefit from both ESM and OAK Racing staff and rely heavier on OAK Racing's expertise.”

The LMP2 squad will continue to compete with two Ligier JS P2 race cars for the 2016 season with additional sponsorship to be announced for the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The Tequila Patron ESM team is currently competing in the WEC season finale, the Bahrain 6 Hours, this weekend before beginning its transition with OAK Racing over the winter.
