With a car powered by the VK45DE engine developed and serviced by Delcam customer Zytek, JOTA Sport has won the LMP2 class at this year’s Le Mans 24-hours endurance race with a car.

The Zytek/Nissan-powered cars of TDS Ligier and G-Drive Ligier came in second and fifth respectively.

The victory was the third at Le Mans for the 4.5-litre V8 engine, which was developed and is serviced at Zytek’s Repton headquarters.

Zytek has been a Delcam customer since 2004, when the company first started using the Powermill CAM system to program its range of Mori-Seiki machine tools. Since then, the two companies have worked together to develop novel machining strategies for motorsport components.

The main focus for the partnership has been on the more efficient five-axis machining of inlet and exhaust ports. The results have included reductions in machining times of up to 60 per cent, together with better quality and consistency.
