Eurasia Motorsport confirmed Wednesday the driver lineup for its LMP2 effort in this year’s Asian Le Mans Series.

The Mark Goddard-led organization will field an Oreca 03 Nissan for FIA WEC pilot Richard Bradley, Korean driver Tacksung Kim and Englishman John Hartshorne.

Additionally, Chinese driver Pu Jun Jin will be part of the three-driver lineup for the final four rounds of the season but will miss next weekend’s season-opener at Inje due to a conflict with Formula Masters China.

“We are really excited to be part of the growing Asian Le Mans Series and we are confident we have a competitive package for the season,” Goddard said.

Goddard’s Eurasia squad operated the successful Craft Racing team last year, which has gone under new management for 2014 with the merger of Bamboo Racing.

Craft-Bamboo and reigning series champions OAK Racing Team Asia will also be represented in LMP2 this year but with Morgan prototypes, while it’s expected that KCMG will return as well with a similar Oreca-Nissan package.

An official entry list has yet to be released for the opening round in Korea, set for July 20.
