Tincknell joins Jota Sport
Jota Sport announced that Harry Tincknell will join the team for the 2014 LMP2 campaign. 22-year-old Briton and regular Simon Dolan will drive the Zytek-Nissan at all five rounds of the European Le Mans Series and lead their annual assault on Le Mans 24 Hours.
I first made contact with Jota in late 2012. – explained Tincknell – We then spoke again last summer and completed a tyre test for Dunlop, which went really well. I was surprised by the similarities the Zytek-Nissan shares with a F3, and within four or five laps I felt at home.
Tincknell competed in the FIA F3 European Championship last year, scoring a victory in his home event at Silverstone. He makes the progression to endurance racing in 2014 under the expert guidance of three-time Le Mans 24 Hours winner Allan McNish.
