Following the first wet-weather running for its all new Strakka DOME S103 at Silverstone this week, Strakka Racing continues to progress the development of the next generation LMP2 car. After running at the British GT test on Tuesday, the team now heads to Europe next week for a comprehensive three day test at Spa.

 

“We continue to follow our scheduled test plan and next week our aim is to get all drivers valuable seat time,” says sportscar team manager Karl Patman. “Although track conditions were quite extreme, in a lot of respects, it’s a great proving ground for what Le Mans sometimes has to offer and the car performed very well.”

Alongside the track running, Strakka Racing is benefitting from its new, bespoke in-house LMP simulator, racking up over 16,000km to date. “Every week, we receive new information from DOME and correlating this to the growing volume of data acquired on track, we now have an increasingly accurate model to accelerate development and driver acclimatisation,” adds Patman.

The team will now head to Spa with Nick Leventis, Jonny Kane and Danny Watts scheduled to run during the three days.

About Strakka Racing

From early domestic campaigns with BMWs and Aston Martins, Strakka Racing has evolved to become one of the most respected and successful privateer teams in the World Endurance Championship.  In 2010 the Silverstone-based team achieved a class win, five circuit records and fifth overall in the iconic Le Mans 24 Hours. Ever developing, in 2013 Strakka Racing entered the Formula Renault 3.5 litre World Series single seater championship, regarded as one of the best training grounds before F1.

In 2014 Strakka Racing joins forces with esteemed Japanese chassis manufacturer DOME to develop, market and race the Strakka DOME S103 LMP2 chassis. Alongside the racing teams, it also runs Strakka Performance, providing professional racing drivers with bespoke programmes aimed at enhancing their on-track performance. Unlike many training regimes, Strakka Performance goes beyond the gym with dedicated track time and coaching in World Series by Renault cars. It has also created Zanardi Strakka Kart racing team, putting in place the building blocks to enable racing drivers to develop and refine their skills right from the start of their career with a support infrastructure that goes beyond any typical racing team.
