Caterham is all set to participate in the 24 Hours Le Mans event this year and the team is campaigning for the new Nissan Zytek Z11SN. The LMP2 is being developed under the watchful eyes of the experts at Caterham and Alexander Rossi - the famed GP2 driver - will be behind the wheel of one of the cars. Caterham is reacting positively to their reaction and a spokesperson has claimed that this will allow the company to venture into and look forward to technologies that can be incorporated into production vehicles in the future.


Caterham also plans on making considerable changes to the sport whenever possible and rise of new technologies is sure to mature from this partnership. The vehicle will be showcased officially by Mike Gascoyne, CEO, Caterham and this is a much cherished moment with the employees at Caterham. Caterham zoomed into the market with their range of sports products for enthusiastic customers and the company had been planning to enter Motorsports for a while.

This event will give them sufficient exposure and the company should flourish within the course of a few years. Any form of racing involves advanced engineering within certain guidelines and these technologies are sure to benefit production vehicles in some form or the other. Caterham has experienced engineers in all forms including designing and development of composite structure carbon fiber as well as advanced power train management. This is an important field of knowledge while designing track vehicles.

The car has been designed for the entire season and as a result no mechanical or designing modifications can be made to the vehicle at least till the next season. Caterham is however confident about the vehicle they have designed and the details of the specifications are rumored to be unveiled, although this is not a very practical way considering the fact that the specifications of the LMP2 racer should be covered.

Caterham Technology and Research has spent a long time formulating the vehicle and a proto type of this vehicle is expected in the future. Caterham has the necessary expertise, resources, heritage and talent to be successful in the industry and as a result there is no reason for the firm to fail in the area of production or sports. Engineers are quite confident of their creation although their success rate will only be revealed after the results of this season are put on the leader board.

The LMP2 racer is highly aerodynamic and features an all carbon fiber body kit. Although details of the engine and chassis are not available, experts believe that an aluminum chassis could have been used to make the structure rigid while not compromising on speed or safety. The race officials have tested the vehicle for safety measures and the vehicle has qualified every test it had been put through. This gives the officials at Caterham more reasons to celebrate. Although the season is yet to start, the progress made so far by the team is commendable and they have a fare chance of performing well this season.
