Eurasia Motorsport will be arriving early in Europe, ahead of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The team with Philippines roots have decided to enter the 6 Hours of Spa Francorchamps on 25 April, before continuing to France for the 24 hours race, for which they received the entry a week ago.
Daniel Gaunt and Nobuya Yamanaka will compete at both Spa and Le Mans, while Nick Cassidy only will do Belgium, while his seat will be taken by Shaun van Gisbergen in France. Cassidy isn’t able to do the mandatory test day in Le Mans prior to the race, so he won’t be qualified for the 24 Hours race. All drivers who haven’t raced at Le Mans are demanded to participate in that test – unless you race in Indycar or Formula 1. They have the chance to do their 10 laps on the Wednesday of race week.
Gaunt, Yamanaka and Cassidy finished off the Asian Le Mans Series 2019/20 season only a few weeks ago, while van Gisbergen replaced Yamanaka at the Australian round of the championship.
The 6 hours race at Spa is quite popular for non-FIA WEC teams, as a warm-up for the 24 hours. We have previously seen JOTA, when they only did ELMS, plus G-Drive Racing and a few other teams.
No other FIA WEC teams have officially committed to the Spa Francorchamps as a Le Mans precursor, but expect more teams to be entered this year as well.
