Lazer Lamps increases presence in endurance racing

Lazer Lamps’ range of high-performance auxiliary LED lighting was widely used during the recent 2015 Dunlop 24 Hour Race at Silverstone, UK, according to the manufacturer.

Over one third of the 29 teams in the endurance race were equipped with night-piercing Lazer Lamps products – a factor that Lazer Lamps believes ‘was instrumental in securing multiple team wins throughout the classes, especially considering the spell of torrential rain through the Saturday night’.

A highlight among these successes was the outstanding performance of the British manufacturer’s flagship Triple-R lighting range. The Silverstone event marked the first time that this motorsport-focused product line had been used in an official endurance race since its launch.

The top two podium places were secured by teams running Lazer Lamps products. Overall winner Beechdean Motorsport ran a light setup on its Aston Martin Vantage GT4 (Class 3) that included Triple-R 750 Elite units, while four laps behind in second place came Bas Koeten Racing’s Seat Leon Cup racer (Class 4) running a brace of Lazer ST-4 light units.

Fifth place overall went to works team Aston Martin Lagonda in another Aston Martin Vantage GT4 equipped with a pair of Triple-R 750 Elite lights. Meanwhile, team Red Camel – was able to improve the night-time performance of its Seat Leon Cup racer and clinch a win in Class 5 after fitting the same setup during the weekend.

Representatives from Lazer Lamps were delighted with the interest expressed in the company’s auxiliary lights over the course of the weekend. Buoyed by these results, the company is anticipating another strong representation in the next 24-hour endurance event, which will take place at the Nürburgring on 14-17 May.
