LMP2 stalwarts Level 5 Motorsports have announced plans to provide support for customers in the LMPC and GT Daytona categories for the upcoming Tudor United SportsCar Championship season.
As well as keeping on their trusty HPD P2 machinery, the team will be displaying two Ferrari 458 GT3s, three Oreca FLM09s and two Lola P2s in a bid to show potential customers the range Level 5 can provide.
“We’re expecting there will be a good representation of drivers for testing at Sebring from both America and Europe,” said team manager David Stone. “We’re looking forward to showcasing Level 5’s impressive paddock. And, with credentials like ours, we’re confident that people will trust us to get the job done for them.”
Indeed with European teams like OAK, Delta-ADR and AF Corse announcing they plan to field cars in at least the Daytona and Sebring rounds of TUDOR Championship, team owner Scott Tucker has spotted a chance to adapt the team into a customer support effort rather than an independent entry.
“Scott’s ultimate goal for Level 5 from the beginning was to build a world-class, purpose-built racing team and program capable of supporting the world’s best sports car drivers as customers,” Stone said. “And that is exactly what he has done.”
“We’re excited to move forward, and confident that the time to evolve is now.
“Given our experience, expertise, resources and championship credentials, we are very much looking forward to what the future holds for this organization.”
Stone carried on to state that the team were already in talks with drivers who could bring funding for a 2014 challenge, with the team ready to rebrand however a customer feels fit.
However, Tucker’s own plans have yet to be finalised for the season with rumours from within the team suggesting he is seriously looking at the World Endurance Championship’s LMP1-L category designed for privateers.
