Strakka Racing have been forced to withdraw from the FIA World Endurance Championship ‘Prologue’ test after a late technical issue was found.
The Strakka DOME S103 had a relatively trouble free debut earlier this week at a private test but the team have now been forced to delay further testing until they fix the issues.
“Teething problems such as these are not unexpected with a brand new car,” says Hiroshi Yuchi, DOME’s chief designer.
“Together with partner Strakka Racing, we have all worked extremely hard to have the Strakka DOME S103 out at the Prologue but we have to reschedule. DOME and Strakka Racing are now planning a private test in Europe where we can start to really develop and refine the car ahead of the first round of the FIA World Endurance Championship.”
The Prologue event gets under way tomorrow (26 March) for 2 days and will see the majority of the WEC field take part in head-to-head testing for the first time this year.
