As we all build-up our plans for the 24 hours of Le Mans, we thought it would be good to find out from one of the teams what efforts they go to in readiness for the toughest challenge of the year. We turned to Strakka Racing who as ever were keen to give fans more insight into what goes on across the many functions of the team.

In this first of a series of conversations, we talk with Nick Bailey (Strakka Racing’s Marketing & PR supremo) who has most recently been responsible for the #Strakka25k campaign to put 50 selected fan’s twitter handles on the wing end-plate of the #42 Gibson 015s Nissan at La Sarthe in a few weeks.

We covered the following topics

  • Marketing, PR, Fan Engagement and Thanks
  • 24-hours of Le Mans – Business Preparations
  • Challenges from FIAWEC Spa
  • The support Sponsors bring
  • Additional Personnel
  • Car and Driver Simulation Preparation
  • Post Le Mans Recovery
