Radical Works Drivers For LMS
We’ll have more Radical news in the next day or so, but let’s begin with the company’s LMP2 project.

“We’re working flat out to have the first car running as planned in March,” says Mick Hyde. “We’re just about ‘on plan’ at the moment.”

The first two chassis are destined for Martin Short’s Rollcentre Racing, with Judd power, while the third car will be the works machine, AER-powered, and the drivers of that car will be Radical co-founder Tim Greaves, plus a man with plenty of Radical experience, Stuart Moseley.

The men behind Radical are very keen for the company’s products to be regarded as ‘a stepping stone to Le Mans’ – and both Greaves and Moseley have certainly worked their way up the Radical ladder (to the Le Mans Series). Tim Greaves has raced every one of the company’s products, while Stuart Moseley, with some GT experience as well, has been very successful in SR3s, for example.

“Technically he’s a very good driver,” points out Mick Hyde, “and he’s proved himself to be the fastest driver in an SR3.”

The works LMP2 car will make it debut at Spa in May.

Regarding any potential further orders for the SR9, Mick Hyde has had “plenty of enquiries, but we’re now in that stage of – let’s see how it goes before we do anything.”

With Peter Elleray and the Radical design team not bowing to the pressure of compromising the design to have it ready on time, expectations for the performance and reliability of the new LMP2 challenger are running high.
