1 Mins read

Team RLR has announced that it will use the new Judd “HK” engine in it MG-Lola EX265 chassis for its Le Mans Series campaign in 2011.

“Getting a new engine installed in time for next season was always going to be a tight affair, with the new regulations being introduced and a large number of orders being placed with engine builders,” said team manager Nick Reynolds. “Team RLR is now in the enviable position of being one of the first teams to have signed an engine deal for the 2011 season, and therefore we are one step ahead of many of our competitors. With another major piece of the jigsaw puzzle in place we can now concentrate on other key areas in our preparations as we build towards becoming a regular LMP2 podium contender in the Le Mans Series.”

The new Judd powerplant, which is based on a 4-litre BMW production engine is one of several engines builders have launched in line with the 2011 regulations laid down by the Auto Club de L'Ouest (ACO) for next year's Le Mans Series and Le Mans 24 Hours.

“We are delighted that Team RLR have chosen the HK as their new powerplant for next year having thoroughly evaluated all the possible options,” said Stan Hall of Engine Developments, the company responsible for the HK. “This confirms our belief that we have chosen the right engine for the new LMP2 regulations both in terms of performance and cost and we therefore look forward to a successful and long lasting partnership with Nick and his team.”

At the head of the queue for the new engine Team RLR hope to take delivery of their new engine in January ahead of a full season of racing, having completed in the Hungaroring and Silverstone rounds of the Le Mans Series this year in preparation.
