KCMG and Prospeed planning FIA WEC program expansion

2015 didn't started, but as speculations don't take a rest, and plans need to be made, come teams are now considering their moves to the next season.


From the LMP2 side, Hong Kong-based KCMG may not wait for the next year to field a second entry into the FIA World Endurance Championship. The idea of boss Paul Ip is to field a second car in the 6 Hours of São Paulo, to be held at Interlagos on November 30th, as a preparation for possible two car effort in 2015.

Discussions are fill the budget and the driver lineup for the second car this year, and forthcoming plans include one new ORECA LMP2 coupé to be fielded in the first three races of the 2015 season, with a changing lineup like what OAK Racing is doing this year with its Morgan-Judd.


From the GTE side, Belgian ProSpeed Competition is planning to field two cars in the FIA WEC for 2015, which will see the same GTE-Am Porsche 911 RSR and a GTE-Pro effort, that according to boss Rudi Penders was decided this year.

All endurance fans know that ProSpeed was always a loyal Prosche customer, but the planned GTE-Pro effort may see a car from another manufacturer on the track. And if this plan doesn't see the light, the plans may remain the same as it was in 2014, with one car in the FIA WEC and one in the ELMS.

OWNER NOTE:

Pay attention to this: a possible brazilian driver lineup into a Morgan-Judd, a second KCMG car and the long-awaited debut of the Strakka-Dome. The LMP2 category may become more interesting in the end of the season.
