Its power units have won races on three continents, taking outright victories in America, Europe and Japan. Gibson Technology products have won the LMP2 Le Mans Series championship numerous times using engines, chassis and engine electronics all designed and manufactured by Gibson Technology.
Many LMP2 race teams repeatedly chose Gibson Technology engines for the FIA World Endurance Championship, European Le Mans Series and the IMSA Weathertech Series.
In conjunction with Nissan Motorsport, Gibson Technology developed the Nissan VK45DE engine for the LMP2 sportscar class. This partnership proved to be extremely effective in winning the Le Mans 24 Hour LMP2 class in 2011 and 2014, and the European Le Mans Series in 2016, using a Gibson chassis and engine electronics.
From 2017 Gibson Technology was awarded the contract to supply their own designed and developed GK428 4.2l race engine to all LMP2 teams competing in the FIA WEC, ELMS and the prestigious Le Mans 24 Hours. In the same year the Gibson engine took victory in LMP2 and an impressive 2nd overall at the Le Mans 24 Hours.
The GK428 is also being supplied to LMP2 teams in the IMSA WeatherTech Sports car Championship.
From 2018 Gibson is also powering the Dragonspeed LMP1 team in the FIA WEC with their newly developed GL458 engine. This LMP1 contract is a natural progression for Gibson’s highly motivated engineers to prove their reliability and success at the top level of endurance racing.
