Asian Le Mans Series champions Ho-Pin Tung and David Cheng will join Leo Roussel in Pegasus Racing‘s Morgan-Nissan LMP2 entry at the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans.
“We have very good advantages with our drivers Leo Roussel, 19-year-old French pilot to have raced at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2014, assisted by Ho-Pin Tung and David Cheng both of which are very experienced and efficient,” said team owner Julien Schell.
For the previous two seasons, Tung and Cheng have both raced with OAK Racing, and in 2014 they were part of the first all-Chinese line-up at the 24 hour race.
The team has also announced that they will enter the 6 Hours of Shanghai, a later round of the FIA World Endurance Championship. They plan to have three Chinese pilots for their home race.
“It is the third year of our cooperation with the project of the ‘Road of Le Mans’ with Chinese pilots,” said Pegasus sports marketing manager Remy Brouard. “This year we will race after Le Mans in Shanghai WEC with three Chinese pilots.
For the two WEC rounds, the team will race under the name ‘Pegasus Racing Team Total’.
