Le Mans 2016 Review

Gibson Technology has returned from yet another successful Le Mans 24 Hour race, supporting LMP2 race teams competing with the Gibson 015S chassis and Gibson-Nissan engines.

Strakka Racing finished the world’s toughest endurance race in a credible 4th place in LMP2, a great result in their Gibson 015S. The G Drive Jota team and their Gibson chassis were looking strong until just after the 15 hour mark, when another car forced them off the track. Unfortunately the damage caused was too much and they had to make the decision to retire.

A total of 10 cars in the LMP2 field competed with Gibson-Nissan engines, with all cars finishing the race with the exception of the G Drive Jota car. SMP Racing took third place on the podium with a Gibson-Nissan engine and 6 out of the top 10 cars in LMP2 being powered by Gibson-Nissan.

During race week the new LMP2 Gibson GK428 engine was launched at a press conference and was well received by the press and race fans alike. The engine will be supplied to all LMP2 teams from 2017 to 2020.

The Gibson team look forward to the next challenge at ELMS, Red Bull Ring on 16th/17th July.
