Nissan may enter electric ZEOD RC racer in 2015 World Endurance Championship
Car would be LMP1 entry and run full WEC campaign

Nissan – Nissan is considering entering the ZEOD RC electric car in the 2015 World Endurance Championship.

Nissan, which holds the Garage 56 entry designation for experimental prototype cars in this June’s 24 Hours of Le Mans with its ZEOD RC race car, is preparing to commit to a full program in the LMP1 category of the FIA World Endurance Championship in 2015, racing against the factory teams of Audi, Porsche and Toyota.

Nissan has not been involved in any project aimed at winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans 24 outright since 1999.

The latest Nissan program is based on its ‘Zero Emission On Demand Racing Car’ — a hybrid sports-prototype coupe powered by a gasoline engine and lithium-ion battery packs. Its design is being developed by Ben Bowlby, who drew the 2012 Garage 56 entry at Le Mans, with the DeltaWing, which was powered by a Nissan engine.

Nissan is pressing ahead with the ZEOD project despite an ongoing lawsuit that was filed in November by the owners of Bowlby’s DeltaWing design. Don Panoz and Chip Ganassi are claiming “damages and injunctive relief arising out of theft of confidential and proprietary information, misappropriation of trade secrets, breach of contracts, unjust enrichment, fraud, and negligent misrepresentation”.
