Manor has chosen the ORECA LM P2 05 chassis to spearhead its entry into the 2016 FIA World Endurance Championship.
The UK based team which is entering the FIA World Endurance Championship for the first time, has selected the ORECA 05 chassis powered by a Nissan engine.
The ORECA 05 has already been proven as a race winning chassis in the FIA World Endurance Championship and also took winning honours in the 83rd running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
John Booth, Team Principal, Manor
“We have been very impressed with the design of the ORECA 05 both in terms of its aerodynamic performance and also its mechanical design and forward thinking safety features.
“ORECA have clearly designed their chassis with feedback from its customer teams in mind and we are really looking forward to working with them throughout the upcoming season.”
David Floury, Technical Director, ORECA
“We are looking forward to start working with Manor. This is a well‐known team which has been successful in the past years. We will bring our knowledge and expertise for their new project in endurance racing. We will have to defend our LM P2 win at 24 Hours of Le Mans last year and aim to win the FIA WEC title, and having Manor alongside our other customer teams is a real asset.”
