Vaughan Cartwright, MD of REAL EQUIPE commented: “We are very proud to have been chosen by Jota Sport to provide race seat inserts and race seat insert fitting services… Driver comfort, positioning and performance is key for endurance racing where driver fatigue can have a direct link to results – being seated and positioned in the car is essential; certainly to ‘feel part of the car’ but also to aid and enhance driver performance, concentration and safety. Jota are highly respected in paddocks throughout the motor racing world and share many of our values in delivering professionalism and a ‘winning’ attitude.”
Jota Sport is a world-class, professional motor racing organisation with superb credentials of delivering success in sports car racing, both in Britain and internationally. Jota-prepared cars have competed seven times at Le Mans and taken podiums across six seasons of the Le Mans Series as well as in several American Le Mans Series events. This year Jota Sport will return to the European Le Mans Series and selected World Endurance Championship rounds with their Zytek Z11SN Nissan, to once again compete on the best sportscar grid in motorsport. The team will also head to the famous La Sarthe circuit for the seventh time to battle it out in the Le Mans 24 Hours.
Jota Sport and Zytek have an illustrious history together with Jota having bought Zytek’s first ever car, which they ran in 2004 & 2005 in the Le Mans Series and the Le Mans 24 Hours in 2005. Over the years, this relationship has seen overall and class podiums in the Le Mans Series and in the American Le Mans Series, a feat that has already been repeated with a class win at the Spa World Endurance Championship round in 2012 and most recently with a class win at Silverstone European Le Mans Series race in April.
