24 Hours of Le Mans – Jackie Chan DC Racing (LMP2)

24 Hours of Le Mans – Jackie Chan DC Racing (LMP2)

This year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans sees a record number of entrants on the grid. We take a look at the 43 teams behind the 62 cars in the field. Here’s the lowdown on LMP2 team Jackie Chan DC Racing.

Team: Jackie Chan DC Racing

Class: LMP2

Cars and Drivers:

#37 ORECA 07-Gibson

  • David Heinemeier Hansson (eighth participation)
  • Jordan King (rookie)
  • Ricky Taylor (fifth participation)

#38 ORECA 07-Gibson

  • Ho-Pin Tung (sixth participation)
  • Stéphane Richelmi (third participation)
  • Gabriel Aubry (second participation)

Team Achievements:

In 2017, the #38 car won the LMP2 class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in front of the #37 sister car. Heading into the Super Final, the two ORECA 07-Gibsons are in second and third places in the FIA Endurance LMP2 Teams Trophy.

The team fielded two cars in the LMP3 class for the 2018-2019 Asian Le Mans Series season, finishing ninth and 11th in the final classification.

Team Goals for the 2019 24 Hours of Le Mans:

Nothing is decided in the FIA Endurance LMP2 Team Trophy! Not only can anything happen during a 24-hour race, but only four points separate Signatech Alpine Matmut's #36 Alpine A470-Gibson (143 points) from the #38 ORECA 07-Gibson and three points from the #37 ORECA 07-Gibson. Jackie Chan DC Racing will certainly optimise its set-ups and adopt the best strategy possible to win Le Mans and clinch the world title.
