Stefan Johansson: Helping Corsa and Ginetta-Zytek make electric history.

RacinToday.com’s Jonathan Ingram spent time Corsa Motorsports’ Stefan Johansson to get a deeper look at the continued evolution and development of the revolutionary Ginetta-Zytek 09HS hybrid prototype.

“This is definitely a technical challenge,” said Johansson, whose Corsa team will compete this weekend at Road America in Round 7 of the championship with Johnny Mowlem. The duo scored a podium finish in their first outing as a fully operating hybrid at Lime Rock in July. But they are still a long way from competing head-to-head with the other current LMP1 category prototypes from Acura, Peugeot and Audi.
