THE FIA WORLD ENDURANCE CHAMPIONSHIP

The 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship season will be the sixth season of the FIA World Endurance Championship auto racing series co-organised by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) and the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO).

The ORECA 05 LMP2 car

 

G-Drive Racing, under the banner of JOTA Sport will run the ORECA 05-Nissan package for the very first time in the full FIA World Endurance Championship this season.

 

The French built car debuted last year and was an instant hit, scoring several wins in the FIA WEC and ELMS, as well as taking the coveted Le Mans LMP2 crown last June.

 

The closed-cockpit ORECA design is slightly smaller than its rivals and its aerodynamics have been lauded by teams that ran the car in its first season.
