The news item ten days or so ago that Racing for Holland was switching
to a Judd 5 litre engine for Le Mans, in the Dome hybrid, caused
a few worrying thoughts among those who avidly follow Jan Lammers’
adventures at Le Mans every year, but just past the middle of May,
the transition is very much on course.
“I’m very positively surprised,”
says Mr. Racing for Holland. “The engine is on the dyno. today
and we’re installing it on Friday.”
The evolution version of the GV5 has had a cracking
start to the year, and Lammers is looking forward to having Judd
power behind him at Le Mans again.
Will the #14 Dome be the only entry driven by three
genuine ex-F1 drivers? Driver nominations don’t need to be
confirmed until scrutineering during Le Mans week, but we believe
Jan Lammers, Alex Yoong and Stefan Johansson will be the only ex-F1
trio in the race – and two of them in particular have massive
Le Mans experience (including a win apiece of course).
This could be
another great Lammers-at-Le-Mans story.
