MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Eurasia Motorsport is teaming up with Rick Ware Racing and BAM Motorsport to make its Rolex 24 debut at Daytona Int’l Speedway in January.

The team plans to compete in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship LMP2 class, with a goal of contesting the full Michelin Endurance Cup season and chasing the IMSA LMP2 title.

“This is an exciting new venture for us at Eurasia Motorsport. We’re currently shipping our two Ligier JS P217s to the factory in readiness for the Rolex 24,” Mark Goddard, Eurasia Motorsport Team Principal. “The team will be based at the RWR facility in the U.S. and we will be managing the program from there with our own race and data engineers as well as race mechanics. We will benefit from logistical and personnel support from RWR and we’re looking forward to this new challenge.”

BAM Motorsport Management will serve as the management arm of the program for Eurasia Motorsport and Rick Ware Racing next year.

“This is our second largescale project with Eurasia Motorsport,” said David Madgwick, BAM Motorsport Managing Director. “The last one culminated in successfully delivering on all fronts the 24 Hours of Le Mans program this year, taking an amateur racer through a comprehensive three-year program to achieve his dream. This new project in the WeatherTech SportsCar championship brings together the talents of three organisations and we look forward to working closely with IMSA over the coming season, while reaching and exceeding each milestone in this exciting program.”

Reigning Asian Le Mans Series champion Cody Ware will lead the driver line up, with co-drivers being confirmed over the coming weeks.

“I had the pleasure of meeting with Mark Goddard and David Madgwick early this year in the Asian Le Mans Series and I was really impressed with their program there,” said Ware. “The Ligier P2 was fast week in and week out and the team as a whole were so professional. I followed their 24 Hours of Le Mans program with interest to, so naturally, I’m excited to be working with Eurasia and the BAM team this year and really looking forward to heading to Daytona for the Roar and then the Rolex 24.

“With my other race programs, it is going to be a very busy season for me, but between my commitments to NASCAR and the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, I think it’s going to be a very cool 2021.”
