Eurasia Motorsport is set for an expansion next year that will see the team compete in the European Le Mans Series.

The Mark Goddard-owned squad, which currently fields entries in the Asian Le Mans Series, GT Asia and Formula Masters China, have confirmed an Oreca 03-Nissan entry for drivers Pu Jun Jin and Nick De Bruijn.

“We are keen to demonstrate that motorsport in the region is at a level which allows us to compete with the best and running the car with our own Asian-based
personnel is a crucial part of our program,” Goddard said.

“We are also happy to be entering a truly Mainland Chinese driver which significantly contributes to the attractiveness of our 2015 program.”

Goddard said the ELMS effort will be run with the same personnel that currently operates its Asian LMS program.

The team, which plans to continue its involvement in the Asian championships next year, is in discussions with multiple drivers to fill the third seat in its ELMS car.
