GP Racing To Run The Promec
Venice-based GP Racing will be running the unique Promec PJ199 in the LMES this year.

In an update to a story first posted on November 7 last year – here – Alex Caffi will, as announced, lead the driving strength, but instead of Gabrio Rosa and Michele Serafini, the co-drivers are likely to be Gabriele Gardel and Fabrizio Del Monte.

The team’s press release suggests that the car will be powered by a 750 bhp Engine Developments V10: if true, it’s going to be a sure-fire winner.

A more likely power output will be in the 550 bhp range, although the 5 litre V10 will receive a restrictor reduction for this year.

“We are going to participate in (the) five endurance races but we’re not going to participate in the 24 hours of Le Mans so we can optimize our resources,” explains Tancredi Pagiaro, Team Director. “We will also have the official support of a tyre company” – suspected to be Yokohama.

“Promec Engineering is going to be very involved in the Italian prototype championship in the 2005 season,” explains Gianfranco Trombetti, of Promec Engineering. “We have decided to give the PJ199 car to GP Racing because of the relationship they have with us and because they have proven in the last few years to be very professional and very competent. We have moreover provided GP Racing with three Promec technicians: Giuseppe Angiulli (engineer), Sergio Paparoni (designer) and Davide Meandri (technician) who contributed to the creation of PJ199."
