OAK Racing to enter pair of Morgan-Nissan 2012 LMP2s in the World Endurance Championship

The recurring engine problems faced by OAK Racing’s LMP1 entry since the start of this season have forced the team to temporarily withdraw its #15 OAK/Pescarolo LMP1 from the FIA World Endurance Championship.  Instead, the French outfit will enter a second of its Onroak Automotive-designed and built Morgan 2012 LMP2s from the upcoming 6 Hours of Silverstone onwards. The #24 and #35 prototypes will both be powered by Nissan VK45 engines and appear in the legendary blue and orange racing livery of Gulf Oil International. Two of the LMP1’s driver line-up have been drafted into the #35 LMP2 fold for Silverstone, although both have previous experience of racing the Morgan.

Perfect team performance from OAK Racing brings Morgan 2012 LMP2 to victory at Donington

A combination of excellent strategy, pace and reliability helped contribute to OAK Racing claiming their first European Le Mans Series victory of the season at the 6 Hours of Donington today. The French team’s #35 Onroak Automotive designed and built Morgan-Nissan 2012 LMP2 of Olivier Pla, Bertrand Baguette and Dimitri Enjalbert ran faultlessly throughout a race that also saw the #24 Judd-powered sister car come home sixth. Having recorded his maiden prototype pole position on Saturday, Matthieu Lahaye maintained the #24’s advantage over his opening double stint while, behind, Baguette battled through to run third. Jacques Nicolet showed strong pace after replacing his team-mate Lahaye but later incurred a drive-through penalty for speeding in the pits. His misfortune would open the door for Enjalbert however who, making his LMP2 class debut this weekend, produced a very strong double stint – albeit one punctuated by...
