Woodard Racing Organisation announced Thursday a dual-series program which will see the British squad take on the European Le Mans Series and Asian Le Mans Series with a HPD ARX-03b.

According to the team’s press release, the Daniel Woodard-led team has entered into a multi-season agreement with Honda, which also includes a LMP2 entry request for the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

“We are extremely pleased to have reached agreement with a major manufacturer like Honda,” Woodard said in a statement. “Motor racing is in their DNA. In 2012 they won at Le Mans and the WEC.

“We believe we can develop a strong and successful team through this collaboration. Our belief in them is reinforced by the latest test results from Daytona where they are the fastest P2.”

Johnny Mowlem, who drove for the team in its one-and-only prototype race to date, at Sebring in 2011, has been signed for the team’s ELMS program.

“To have Johnny on board again is fantastic,” Woodard added. “He is very experienced and professional in his approach to everything motor racing and we believe he has much to contribute the Team.

“We are in detailed discussions with several other drivers and I hope to be in a position to finalize the driver line-up shortly.”

The team confirmed to Sportscar365 that it will take delivery of a brand-new HPD ARX-03b, instead of the previously rumored used chassis currently available on the market.

Woodard has primarily been taking part in Britcar competition since its one-off ALMS race in Prototype Challenge nearly three years ago.
