Williamson To Complete WEC Season With Strakka Racing
Scot Lewis Williamson has been confirmed as Strakka Racing’s third driver in the remaining rounds of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC). After a strong debut at the Nürburgring in Germany last month, Williamson, 26, from Golspie, will compete alongside Nick Leventis and Jonny Kane at the Mexican, US, China, Japan and Bahrain races of the series. “It’s amazing and it’s still not sunken in that I’ll be in the car again,” says Williamson. “I tried my very best in Germany to show that I could be both quick but also bring it home in one piece.
