Strakka Racing is ready to make its much-anticipated return to the FIA World Endurance Championship after being absent from the 2014 season, with team manager Dan Walmsley expressing his delight that the wait is finally over.

The Silverstone-based team made its first public outing in WEC at the Prologue test at the Paul Ricard circuit with the Anglo-Japanese team owner and driver Nick Leventis returning to the wheel of the Strakka-Dome S013 along with regular co-driver Danny Watts.

Team manager Walmsley says he is thrilled to have the team back up and running again after a year away from racing.

"It is great to be here. It has been a long time and there will be a lot of work going on in the team to get all our procedures and other organisational elements of the team up to speed and polished, Walmsley said.

"We have done a lot of work on the car, so it will be nice to see where we are compared to the opposition, but I have a feeling that we will have to wait and see where we really are at Silverstone."

The British team has switched to the LMP2 category for the 2015 season after pulling out of the LMP1 class in 2013. Strakka Racing made sportscar racing history in 2010 when it became the first LMP2 car to win overall in a Le Mans series race at the 1,000km of Hungaroring race.

"It is going to be mega," said Watts. "The class is so strong with so many potential winners. It will be super tough but we have some great talents working in the team. We know what we can achieve as a unit and we will be going all out to prove that the Strakka package can be right there at the front."
