Welter Racing Salini today revealed its ambitious business plans for the 2011 season. Well known for their exploits with a modified Zytek LMP2 chassis, the privateer operation has announced plans to internally design, and develop the first customer diesel LMP1 powerplant.

In addition, WR-Salini also intends to provide the engines to interested privateers, becoming the first non-factory engine manufacturer to develop and sell internally-built diesel engines. Reportedly a Bi-turbo, V8 design, the powerplant will consist of 80% Peugeot manufactured components.
