JRM makes the step up to Le Mans after its FIA GT1 World Championship title victory last year.
The trio of David Brabham, Peter Dumbreck and Karun Chandhok will use the Honda HPD ARX-03a to contest the LMP1 category alongside works and privateer outfits.
Earlier in the day, Brabham opened running in the practice session for JRM with three runs in the first 90 minutes.
The Le Mans 2009 winner recorded the team’s best time of 3:34.641, 10th in the overall classification. Brabham then handed over to Chandhok, but the Indian reported some instability on the rear of the car on his second run and returned to the pits for checks before Brabham got back in the car to compare set-ups with the beginning of the session. The Australian then handed over to Dumbreck.
In the second qualifying Dumbreck was first out in the car, completing four timed laps with his – and the team’s overall – best time of 3:37.088. Chandhok, who will become the first-ever Indian to compete in the Le Mans 24 Hours this weekend, then posted three timed laps before Brabham rounded off the day.
