Team Manager, Jacob Greaves.“The team had a very positive Test Day, both getting the drivers qualified and testing our Le Mans aerodynamic package. The changeable conditions meant that we also learnt a lot about how to get the optimal set up on the car in both wet, dry and mixed conditions. It was a great way to start our partnership with Caterham Motorsport who brought significant expertise to the mix. The Nissan engine, the Zytek chassis and the Dunlop tyres are a strong combination and the team is looking forward to the challenge against the huge, high quality LM P2 grid.
