Jackie Chan DC Racing has been forced to replace its entire driver line-up in the #37 Oreca 07-Gibson for the remainder of the FIA WEC World Endurance Championship Super Season.
FIA WEC – Jackie Chan DC Racing announces a new driver line-up

For the 1000 Miles of Sebring (Friday 15 March 2019) and the Total 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps (Saturday 4 May 2019), the Jackie Chan DC Racing #37 Oreca 07-Gibson will be driven by David Heinemeier Hansson, Jordan King and Will Stevens. Heinemeier Hansson and King will also compete in the 87th 24 Hours of Le Mans (15 and 16 June 2019), the culmination of the 2018-19 FIA WEC World Endurance Championship Super Season. They will be joined by a third driver whose name has yet to be revealed, as Stevens has already signed to race Le Mans with French team Panis-Barthez Compétition.

The all-Malaysian line-up of Jazeman Jaafar, Nabil Jeffri and Weiron Tan is no longer able to drive the #37 Oreca 07-Gibson, due to circumstances beyond the drivers’ control. In 2018, they clinched a win in the LMP2 class at the 6 Hours of Fuji and took pole at the 6 Hours of Silverstone last August. At the 24 Hours of Le Mans, they finished eighth overall and fourth in LMP2.
