The ACO and the FIA have the firm purpose of setting the regulations for the LMP1-L to be more competitive and that encourage private teams to compete in the top category of the WEC. Find the balance between the deployment and performance of the LMP1 factory and private units without hybrid technology is assuming more of a headache for the management minds of the category and also is being a pain in the neck for the team Strakka Racing. The british team founded by Nick Leventis has the firm intended to give the jump to the category LMP1-L.
it should Be remembered that Strakka Racing currently competes in the LMP2 with a unit of the Gibson 015S – Nissan racing the own Nick Leventis, in addition to also brits Danny Watts and Jonny Kane. However, the team wants to ascend to the category LMP1 in 2017, something that seems to get complicated by the time deadlines becoming smaller due to lack of a regulation firm. The team still has not renounced his purpose, but also works to renew its LMP2 for 2017, any time the chassis Gibson may not be used for to be a cabin open.
With these constraints and doubts about the rules-in hybrid that will be adopted in 2018 and which will have an impact on the level of performance of the LMP1-L, it seems that the project of Strakka Racing is about paralyzed. And all despite having a expanded facilities at Silverstone, with the support of two sponsors of weight as the Dell and Xero and a mule of tests to develop their LMP1 based on the Dome S103, which allowed the team to develop its own chassis monohull, as Rebellion Racing and ByKolles. With a complete prototype, Strakka Racing can be spending their last bullet.
