Racing Team Nederland has taken delivery of a second Dallara P217 Gibson chassis, ahead of its debut in the European Le Mans Series and 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The Dutch squad shook down the second chassis at Varano earlier this week, and is understood to be used as a spare car, at least for the time being.

Ruberns Barrichello, Jan Lammers and Fritz van Eerd will share driving duties in the team’s season-long entry.

Its primary Dallara chassis has already undertaken extensive pre-season testing, including a week-long Dunlop tire test at Sebring in December.

    It’s interesting that it’s cheaper to buy a second car than a spares package. Though that’s useful if you find funding for a second entry.
