Strakka Racing has confirmed that it will field an unchanged line-up for the 2014 season after securing an entry into the World Endurance Championship and Le Mans 24 Hours.

Nick Leventis, Danny Watts and Jonny Kane will again share driving duties as the team makes its return to the LMP2 class for the year ahead having elected to run a new DOME Strakka S103.

The new car will be powered by a Nissan engine and will be developed by the British team over the course of the season.

"This year is a new challenge for Strakka Racing," Leventis said. "We'll be fighting against strong and established teams in LMP2 prototype racing, but we're confident in the development of the DOME Strakka S103.

"Our previous success in the class certainly makes us determined to win similar accolades and achieve the best possible result at each race, yet with the strength of other competitors on the track it won't be an easy task."

With the team having worked hard on its simulator to collate as much data as possible before the car hits the track, Watts said he was confident that podiums were a realistic aim from the off.

"Strakka Racing has the stability of a consistent team and that will play to our advantage in the 2014 season," he said. "Last year's highlight of winning the LMP1 Privateers' award at the 24 Heures du Mans is a reflection of Strakka Racing's ambition.

"We know each other inside and out, and we're looking forward to building on both our LMP1 and LMP2 experience with our sights firmly set on consistent podium finishes."
