Oxford Vaughan Ambassador Oliver Webb Signs For ByKOLLES Racing For The 2016 WEC Season

ByKOLLES Racing has completed its driver line-up for the upcoming FIA World Endurance Championship season by signing Oxford Vaughan Ambassador Oliver Webb. Oliver will share the CLM P1/01 with Simon Trummer (CH) and Pierre Kaffer (D).

“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.”

“I’m delighted to be joining ByKolles for the 2016 FIA WEC season. A great calendar and step in my career into LMP1 with faster, more advanced machinery. After some good conversations with the team and the direction the car is going in I’m very excited to be involved in this project for 2016. It’s a big step forward and I’m looking forward to the challenge and joining my new team mates Simon Trummer and Pierre Kaffer.”

ByKOLLES Racing has been competing in motorsport for 15 years and has a wealth of experience and knowledge gained from successful participation in WEC, DTM, Formula One and other formula series.

With a new aero package, suspension geometry modifications and performance upgrades throughout, based on the new technical regulations, the team has made real progress on their new prototype race car.

The new LMP1 will be unveiled ahead of the official pre-season test session at Paul Ricard in March.

Everyone at Oxford Vaughan would like to wish Oliver the best of luck for the season ahead with his new team. You can keep up to date with the latest updates from Oliver, as he competes in the 2016 season of the World Endurance Championship, on Twitter and Instagram.
