ORECA Racing is the birth certificate of the ORECA Group. Car racing is more than a core business, it is a reason to be. Born from the passion of Hugues de Chaunac, ORECA took its first steps in 1972-1973 and the four decades that followed led the Team on all
terrains. The circuit obviously - first in Monoplace, then in Endurance, Super Tourism and GT - but also in rally, rally-raid and rally-cross. As a unique model, ORECA has established itself in all disciplines and with the best brands. These achievements symbolize the mood of an entire group: to move forward by constantly raising new challenges with a goal, to be the best!
Team ORECA is a reference with more than 350 wins in competition, nearly 50 national and international titles, and no fewer than 21 participations in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, that is to say nearly 50 cars engaged! Among its records, ORECA has the distinction of being the only French team to have won the 24 Hours of Daytona (2000), but also the only tricolor team to have imposed itself at the 12 Hours of Sebring (2011) with a French car And a French crew.
In 2017, for the sixth consecutive season, ORECA is partner of the TOYOTA Racing team in the FIA World Endurance Championship and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. ORECA provides operational support and experience in the discipline to the Japanese manufacturer's race team, which commits TS050 HYBRID, a prototype equipped with hybrid technology.

TOYOTA wins the "pilot" and "teams" crowns, the first world titles for a Japanese manufacturer in Endurance.
