WEC: "Evo" version of Morgan LMP2 to debut in 2015

By

The Ligier JS/ P2 coupe may be the new and prettier baby sister to Onroak Automotive’s curvy but now rather more mature Morgan LMP2, but it is far from game over for the open-topped car.

Indeed there are prospects of seeing examples of the Morgan both in the 2015 ELMS with Pegasus Racing (possibly a pair of cars) and in the FIA WEC, with Benoit Morand working hard to pull together a deal to secure a full-season entry.  Other entries, particularly in the ELMS, are still possible.

There will however, be a change for 2015 for the Morgan. The car is now three years old and therefore can be re-homologated, with the performance lessons learned from its extensive competition heritage informing an ‘evo’ package (as Oreca did with its revised 03.R from Le Mans this year).

Onroak turned its hand to the evolutionary package some weeks ago and hope to have their solution ready for customers in time for the start of the 2015 season.
