“With the signing of Oliver Webb our desired driver line-up for the 2016 WEC season is now complete,” says Boris Bermes, ByKOLLES Director of Racing Operations. “Oliver is a young and fast sports car driver, who was able to gain a lot of experience in the past few years. His achievements in endurance racing speak for themselves. We have been watching his career for a long time and were already impressed back when he was in single-seater open-wheel racing. I am convinced that Oliver will be a great asset for our team. He fits perfectly with his new team-mates in terms of character and his approach and will support the team throughout the 2016 season to systematically continue the progress from last year.”

Second place in Shanghai for Kaffer/Trummer

Thanks to another flawless performance under difficult track conditions in Shanghai, the ByKOLLES Racing team finished the latest six hour race on the podium. Even a victory in the LMP1 privateer class was within reach, but due to a full course yellow phase in the final stage of the race, the CLM P1/01 eventually crossed the finish line in second place.

Boris Bermes, Head of Operations ByKOLLES Racing: “It was a fantastic fight in the LMP1 class, and we are accordingly happy about our fourth podium finish in a row. Pierre was dominating from the start on, and I was impressed in particular by his overtaking manoeuvre on Mathias Beche. He was slowed down by a GT car only on his way to the pit lane, which was the only reason why he lost the lead. We changed to intermediates only after four hours, and switched to slick tyres for the last two stints. Considering the number of spins and accidents, Pierre and Simon, who was once again able to improve massively during the course of the weekend, did an incredible job with their error-free performance. We are very happy with the performance of the entire team.“
