Eurasia Motorsport will start a programme in the US, entering the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race at Daytona International Speedway.
The Philippine team will work together with Rick Ware Racing, which was their competitors in the 2019/20 season of the Asian Le Mans Series. The new collaboration will be named RWR Eurasia.
The first announced driver for the team will be Cody Ware, who was the LMP2 Trophy during the most recent season in Asia.
Eurasia is shipping their two Ligier JS P217 cars to the USA, where they will compete in the 24 hours race at the Daytona track, with the possibility of the rest of LMP2 season in America too. The cars will be serviced and stored at the Rick Ware Racing facility in North Carolina.
It’s not quite clear where this leaves a potential Asian Le Mans Series programme for 2021, which will be run in February. Eurasia Motorsport has previously spoken about being able to run cars in all categories in the Asian LMS.
