Zytek's hybrid Le Mans car will race in Europe for the first time this season after Rangoni Motorsport completed a deal to enter an LMP1 Zytek 09SH in the European-based Le Mans Series.
The squad is also hoping for a Le Mans 24 Hours entry as it steps up to top-line sports car racing from the Italian-based Superstars series. Team co-founder Luca Rangoni will be part of the driver lineup alongside former FIA GT champion Thomas Biagi and LMS regular Ferdinando Geri.
The hybrid system in the 09SH is described by Zytek as a new "pure racing hybrid system" to supersede the road car technology-based hybrid system that the Corsa team's Zytek ran in the 2009 American Le Mans Series.
Zytek Engineering's operations director John Manchester said: "We firmly believe that the collaboration with Rangoni Motorsport and also the introduction of the groundbreaking ZPH hybrid technology is going to produce great success over the coming seasons."
