The Gibson 015S LMP2 car

 

The Gibson 015S LMP2 racer was initially known as the Zytek Z11SN and made its debut in 2011 Its history stretches even further back, as it was based on the Zytek Z07S. The family of Zytek designs were penned by renowned designer Tim Holloway, who continues to be heavily involved with the car in his role as chief engineer for JOTA Sport.

In 2012 JOTA entered its Nissan powered Zytek Z11SN in to the Le Mans Series and so began a successful run of appearances and results in Europe’s premier LMP2 championship.

In 2014 and 2015 JOTA narrowly missed out on the ELMs titles despite usually being the class of the field. For ’15 the car had been substantially developed and also became known as the Gibson 015S in deference to Bill Gibson who founded initially Zytek and then a newly branded company called Gibson Technology.
