Strakka Racing has announced revised lineups for Brands Hatch and Silverstone owing to Nick Leventis’ injury, while also signing Oliver Webb for Silverstone and Spa-Francorchamps.

The ByKolles Racing Team LMP1 regular is set to join Alvaro Parente and Lewis Williamson in the No. 42 McLaren 650S GT3 at the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup round at Silverstone later this month.

He will return alongside Leventis, Williamson and Craig Fleming at the Total 24 Hours of Spa in July. 

The changes to Strakka’s No. 42 McLaren lineup come after Leventis was injured ahead of the Monza race last month.

The knee injury that Leventis picked up is more serious than initially thought, ruling him out of the upcoming races.

He will be replaced by David Fumanelli at Brands Hatch for the Sprint Cup round this weekend, with the Italian joining Williamson in the Silver Cup-entered car.
