Oxford Vaughan Ambassador Oliver Webb Returns To The Track As WEC Heads To Nurburgring

Oxford Vaughan Ambassador and LMP1 racer Oli Webb returns from the World Endurance Championship mid-season break this weekend to face the gruelling 6 hours of Nurburgring from the 22nd to 24th July.

The circuit is located in the town of Nurburg and features a 5.1km Grand Prix track built in 1984; the far bigger "North Loop" which dates back to the 1920s was dubbed the "Green Hell" by legendary racer, Jackie Stewart.

Oli hopes for a change in fortune in this round of the WEC, after retiring from the last race at the 84th running of the Le Mans 24 hour. After fighting so hard to keep the car running Oli's ByKOLLES team ultimately had to pull up with mechanical issues before the chequered flag.

The ByKOLLES team have made adjustments in preparation for Germany and Oli is looking forward to the challenge with optimism on a track that could suit his set-up.

"After the long break between Le Mans and Nurburgring the team and us drivers are ready for the challenge. It's a very physical track with not much rest and we hope this track will suit our new downforce levels. I'm excited to get back in the car and back with the team."

Qualifying is 14:45 local time on Saturday followed by the rolling start to the race on Sunday at 13:00.

Everyone at Oxford Vaughan would like to wish Oli and the rest of the ByKOLLES team at Nurburgring in the latest round of the World Endurance Championship.
