One of the efforts heavily hinted at in our review of the ELMS LMP2 prospects was the as yet unannounced Racing Team Nederland effort with a new Dallara Gibson LMP2.
Whilst hoping to respect embargoes over this effort the appearance on YouTube of testing video footage from Magny Cours last week with a fully liveried car and drivers Jan Lammers and Frits van Eerd, owner of the Jumbo Supermarkets group and huge motorsport enthusiast and collector, means that simply isn’t a sustainable position any more.
The effort, we believe, should see a full season entry for the 2017 ELMS with an entry also posted for the 2017 Le Mans 24 Hours with ex F1 star Rubens Barrichello set to join the effort!
The effort would be run with the assistance of Davy Lemmens Davytech outfit (their LMP3 Ligier can be seen in the background in the garage).
The video below also gives us more view of the Dallara than so far seen in the one-off spy shot from Autosprint last month of Dallara’s first test car
