How an Italian junior formula giant is readying for its Le Mans future

By:

Prema remains a colossus in single-seaters, but the serial Formula 2 and Formula 3 title-winning squad has joined forces with top GT squad Iron Lynx for an attack on sportscars in the World Endurance Championship and European Le Mans Series. Ahead of its debut at the Le Mans 24 Hours, its sights are firmly fixed on LMP2 glory – and a future in Hypercars next year...

“You know how much time you spend together in motorsport, it’s almost like being a family. And if you don’t get on well together, it doesn’t work.”

The words are spoken by Andrea Piccini, one of the Iron Lynx founders who played a key role in bringing Italian single-seater powerhouse Prema to sportscar racing – and, this weekend, its Le Mans 24 Hours debut. And his words couldn’t be more accurate.
