The ambitious long-term program that the Team SARD-Morand had for the FIA World Endurance Chmapionship will continue, but with some changes on it, starting with the exit of their main partner, Kairos Technologies.
The Japanese-Swiss team was expected to field two Morgan EVOs in the LMP2 category during the whole FIA WEC season, which one of them would receive the winner of the reality show Race to 24. But in fact, both cars weren’t present for the 6 Hours of Silverstone.
The whole problem was in the team’s ownership, as Benoit Morand sold the majority share of SARD-Morand to Kairos Technologies, but as the Ukranian company failed to pay for the share, SARD-Morand didn’t made the travel to England and reduced its 24 Hours of Le Mans and FIA WEC programs to just one car.
The other blow was in the drivers selected for the Race to 24 reality show. As Kairos Technologies was the responsible for the program and failed to honor with their financial commitments, the attraction was cancelled.
At the moment, Pierre Ragues, Oliver Webb and ZoelAmberg were the selected drivers to drive the No. 43 Morgan from Spa onwards, but there’s no confirmation if the named lineup will remain for the 2015 season.
