In fact, Miro Konopka’s goal is to compete with Oreca’s LMP2 chassis in the 24 Hours of Le Mans and in the Bahrain double event, thus leaving behind a Ligier JS P217 that still used the equipment in the recent 6 Hours of Monza, even if that means racing a second-hand Oreca that belonged to SPS Automotive until recently. A situation that, among other things, causes the Bahrain 6 and 8 o’clock grid in the LMP2 category to become a ‘monobrand’ class, since all teams will compete with Oreca chassis.
About, I look at Konopka has pointed out: «There was no possibility of getting a new chassis, since Oreca only offered me a new chassis in September, after Le Mans. In the end we bought a unit from SPS Automotive, in Germany. There was a driver who used it for two days of track testing, but the car has never played a race. We will have that prototype at Le Mans and it will be shipped to Bahrain for the final two events.. I will run the whole season, we are committed to it. Then we will focus on the Asian Le Mans Series and we will have to see how we fit our entire schedule.
