Doran Dallara To Europe
Steady… it’s not what you might have been thinking…
The inaugural Interserie
100 minute "mini enduro" will get underway on 7 / 8 August
on the Eurospeedway Lausitzring in Germany; and an interesting entry
has been submitted: after an absence of several years, Fredy Lienhard's
Lista team will make its return to Europe.
The Interserie Endurance
100 Trophy is open for ACO and FIA spec. sports prototypes (as well
as GTs), therefore the team's Doran Daytona Prototype is not eligible:
but Mr. Lienhard has rediscovered an old friend in the back of the
garage, the Judd-powered Dallara SP1, chassis #1. In 2002, Doran
Lista won the Rolex 24 Hours with this car, with drivers Max Papis,
Mauro Baldi, Didier Theys and Fredy Lienhard. The latter two will
drive the car at the Eurospeedway.
Interserie manager Friedrich
Dudichum is delighted over the return of a long-time Interserie
competitor: "One of the great names of international endurance
racing is coming to the Endurance 100 Trophy. We are looking forward
to seeing this unique car, the 2002 Daytona winner."
was also victorious in three other Grand American rounds in 2002,
and Theys won the drivers' championship in the SRP category; the
team title went to Dyson that year.
With this entry, Lienhard lends his support to a series he has competed
in for many years - before he concentrated on the American sportscar
racing scene - at a time when this support is needed. And what will
happen with this car after the Lausitzring race: will it return
to retirement in America, or has Europe not seen the last of Fredy
Lienhard, Didier Theys, and the Lista Dallara?
