Jackie Chan DC Racing x Jota has taken its third Asian Le Mans Series win in as many races but the first for its No. 7 car with a new lineup in the Six Hours of Buriram on Saturday.

Jazeman Jaafar, Weiron Tan and Afiq Ikhwan Yazid drove the team’s No. 7 Oreca 05 Nissan to victory, denying teammates Thomas Laurent, Harrison Newey and Stephane Richelmi their third straight victory.

The two Jota Sport-run entries dominated the race with the lead swapping between both cars several times and no other competitors able to make it to the front of the field in the six-hour enduro. 

Tan eventually crossed the line 80 seconds ahead of Newey while Pipo Derani completed the podium in the BBT Ligier JS P2 Nissan. 

KCMG took home the LMP3 honors for the second time this season with its unchanged lineup of Josh Burdon, Louis Prette and Neric Wei.

Mechanical problems for the DC Racing LMP3 entry prevented Guy Cosmo, Patrick Byrne and Gabriel Aubry from challenging the KCMG car.

Jesse Krohn, Junsan Chen and Chaz Mostert took FIST-Team AAI to the GT win with the team’s BMW M6 GT3 beating the Tianshi Racing Team Audi R8 LMS.

RESULTS: 6H Buriram
