Following their history-making Le Mans 24 Hour double podium and LMP2 victory, Jackie Chan DC Racing x JOTA Sport had the chance to thank their action superstar supporter in person at the glittering Jackie Chan Action Movie Week Gala Night in Shanghai last night.
Jackie Chan DC Racing x JOTA Sport team owner David Cheng was joined by fellow drivers Ho-Pin Tung, who became the first-ever Chinese driver to win at the famous Le Mans 24 Hours last week in the #Mighty38 ORECA, and fellow #37FortuneCat ORECA driver, 26-year-old Briton Alex Brundle, to personally express the team’s thanks for the Rush Hour star’s support which has played such a key role in powering the team to unprecedented success this season.
Said Cheng, in a heartfelt expression of gratitude: “Thank you, Jackie, for all of your support from the entire team. We couldn’t have done it without you!”
The team then presented their Le Mans 24 Hours winners’ trophies to a delighted Chan, who asked they “keep up the good work”, something they will be looking to do when they’re back in action at the next round of the prestigious FIA World Endurance Championship at the world-famous Nürburgring circuit in Germany next month.
Chan joined his drivers to pose with the impressive Le Mans 24 Hours winners’ trophies in front of the packed Oriental TV Theatre in Shanghai’s Pudong district.
With Cheng, Tung and Brundle the stars of the race track, the evening was full of action stars of the silver screen as well as some of the world’s most successful movie directors, amongst them Rob Cohen, creator of The Fast and the Furious film franchise, China’s Feng Xiaogang, and Die Hard 2 director, Renny Harlin. Chan was also reunited with his Rush Hour costar Chris Tucker, who was on hand to congratulate the Jackie Chan DC Racing x JOTA Sport drivers on their Le Mans success.
