Vector Sport has signed a deal to partner up with the Italian car manufacturer Isotta Fraschini, and will become an official works team.
The collaboration will be in the FIA World Endurance Championship, where their brand-new Hypercar is going to participate. The first car is currently being built, and is expected to make its debut at Spa Francorchamps, with the aim to participate in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June.
Vector Sport made their FIA WEC debut in 2022, where they ran an ORECA 07 Gibson LMP2 car, which was shared between Ryan Cullen, Sebastien Bourdais, Nico Müller, Mike Rockenfeller and Renger van der Zande during the six race weekends. Team boss Gary Holland has experience from many different motorsport programs, including JOTA Sport and Krohn Racing.
There is no news regarding the driver line-up.
The details about the car are quite limited, but Isotta Fraschini has announced that the car will be built to LMH standards, and will run a Hybrid system with the front wheels being electrically powered, just like we know from Toyota Gazoo Racing and the brand-new Ferrari 499P.
The FIA WEC 2023 starts on 17 March at Sebring International Raceway, with the Portimao on 16 April, and Spa Francorchamps on 29 April.
