ATU 20 // Strakka Racing


Now for a very special #AutoTweetUp. The team at Strakka Racing have gifted us the opportunity to visit their HQ at Silverstone on Thursday 20th August. Starting at 6pm and finishing at 9pm this will be a great insight to one of the most exciting race teams in WEC.


Strictly limited to 40 people attendees will be treated to a tour of the workshops where you will see on display the WEC cars and a World Series car amongst other treats. Throughout the night there will be a chance to win a go in the awesome simulator they have on site as well as check out some of their amazing 3D printed parts.


From early domestic campaigns with BMWs and Aston Martins, Strakka Racing has evolved to become one of the most respected and successful privateer teams in the World Endurance Championship.  In 2010 the Silverstone-based team achieved a class win, five circuit records and fifth overall in the iconic Le Mans 24 Hours. In 2013, it secured a second Le Mans win in the LMP1 Privateers’ class. Ever developing, in 2013 Strakka Racing entered the Formula Renault 3.5 World Series single-seater championship, regarded as one of the best training grounds for F1. In 2014 Strakka Racing joined forces with esteemed Japanese chassis manufacturer DOME to develop, market and race the Strakka DOME S103 chassis.  2014 also saw Strakka Racing create the Zanardi Strakka Kart racing team, winning both prestigious FIA KF and KZ titles in 2014. Strakka Racing has just announced it will be an LMP1 car for the 2017 World Endurance Championship. This is without doubt one of the most exclusive and exciting opportunities #AutoTweetUp has been give and I expect places to fill up fast.

There is plenty of space on site for you to bring along your pride and joy but it will be out door parking so please consider the British weather!

See you there!

  1. Hi,
    Not sure if this is full, but very keen as a Strakka fan from WEC and World Series Renault, going to watch them at the Silverstone round and interested in their new LMP1 project. On Twitter as @mightymoose3.
