WEC: Strakka ready for S103 DOME race debut

Strakka Racing put the final touches to its brand new S103 DOME ahead of its belated World Endurance Championship debut in 2015.
Strakka Racing has expressed its satisfaction with its S103 DOME LMP2 car after completing 4000kms of mileage during pre-season testing in Spain.

The team has spent more than a year developing the much-delayed LMP2 machine, which was originally supposed to compete in the 2014 World Endurance Championship before persistent issues forced it to turn its attentions to 2015 instead.

Nonetheless, Strakka Racing has used the elongated development time to bring the all-new coupe up to speed, taking to Motorland Aragon to put more miles on the machine, both during the day and at night.

“It was great to be back out again early in the New Year,” said Nick Leventis. “The car ran extremely well, and we are really happy with how it has developed in recent months. Aragón is a demanding circuit, perfect for learning your way around a new car. We are now really looking forward to showing it off in front of our home fans at Silverstone in just a couple of months.”

Strakka Racing is one of 10 entries to contest the 2015 WEC LMP2 class, its Nissan-engined car to be driven by Leventis, Danny Watts and Jonny Kane. It will get its next outing alongside its competition at the official 'Prologue' prior to its race debut at Silverstone on April 12th.
