Delta-ADR have confirmed they will be contesting the LMP2 category of the FIA World Endurance Championship in an Oreca 03-Nissan with Australian John Martin leading the driver line-up.
Team principal Alan Docking explained how they are using experiences from 2012 to help prepare for the season ahead: “We are building towards the start of the 2013 season and aim to use the experience gained during 2012 to good effect. The entry list for the WEC and Le Mans looks tough and we know we will have to be at the top of our game to win. We believe it is a job we can do.”
Delta Motorsport MD Simon Dowson echoed the thoughts of Docking: “Entering 2013 we know we have an extremely strong package. We spent the winter working on improving the car and the team as well as developing our technical partners for the coming season, we have a very strong relationship with Oreca both on the chassis and engine side so we are confident that we can win the Championship and Le Mans with them – this is our number one aim.”
A second Oreca 03-Nissan has been named on the reserve list for the 24 Hours of Le Mans but for now the full driver line-up remains under wraps with Dowson confirming the team are still in talks with a number of potential drivers.
“We are close to completing our full driver line-up for the season and are currently in negotiations with drivers who are capable of winning and with budgets capable of racing in sportscars at the very highest level.”
