Australian rising star, Jake Parsons will make his debut in the prestigious Asian Le Mans series from pole position tomorrow. The 23-year-old took up a late call to drive the #33 Eurasia LMP2 class car at Sepang for the season finale. He joins team-mates Marko Asmer and Nabil Jeffri in the Ligier Nissan for the four-hour endurance race.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to be starting the race on pole tomorrow. We have a really strong team and I think we’ve got a great shot for tomorrow’s race,” explained the talented Tokyo-based driver.
Parsons, who competed in his first season of SuperGT last year, has constantly shown his driving ability and mental strength, adapting quickly to new tracks and cars. He’s now keen to test himself in the competitive endurance series on a track he knows and enjoys immensely, having previously won twice on the grand prix circuit in formula races.
“I’ve made good improvements each session and got up to pace quickly. I’m feeling very comfortable with the driving style of the LMP2 car and really looking forward to the race.”
Eurasia team principal Mark Goddard is thrilled with his team' performance so far, "We are looking forward to the race. Jake, Nabil and Marko have the pace to give us a great result but our setup with Ligier is working well."
Round four of the Asian Le Mans series takes place at Sepang, Malaysia on 4th February.
