Corsa Motorsports to debut hybrid LMP1 car at Petit Le Mans
Zytek has designed a new E10-fueled 4.5L V8 that will be paired up with a three phase induction motor and six speed gear box. The car will feature regenerative braking with energy stored in a lithium ion battery provided by Continental Automotive. Track testing of the car started in July at the Donington Park track in the UK and the car will soon be shipped to the U.S. for its race debut. Corsa is planning to run the entire 2009 ALMS season with the new car.
