In season 2017 ex-Audi LMP1, Oliver Jarvis will be in the team of the legendary Hollywood actor Jackie Chan in the LMP2 class.
In Jackie Chan DC Racing 33-year-old Jarvis will share ORECA-Gibson 07 with Ho-pin Thun and former world champion in karting Tom Laurent.
Jarvis, speaking for the Audi for nine years until the departure of the producer from the WEC at the end of last year, said in an interview AUTOSPORT.com: “It’s a perfect combination: I will speak with the manufacturer and will continue to pilot the prototype WEC.
I love the WEC, and had made many friends. I also love to manage prototypes”.
The first time Jarvis will test the new ORECA at the Dunlop tire tests at the track in Aragon.
“I look forward to the moment when you sit behind the wheel of this car. I hope we will have a successful season – continued Oliver. – However, in 2017 will be a lot of strong teams in LMP2, but the results of the Jota in 2016 speak for themselves”.
