WEC: Kolles confirms LMP1 WEC entry

The ByKolles Racing team will bring an updated version of the CLM P1 to the World Endurance LMP1 class in 2015.
Colin Kolles has confirmed his eponymous ByKolles Racing team will continue to race in the FIA World Endurance Championship LMP1 class for 2015.

Running under the Lotus banner, the team made a belated step up from LMP2 to LMP1-L in 2014, debuting the CLM P1 during the fourth round in the United States, missing Le Mans.

For 2015, Lotus will become known as ByKolles and will run a substantially updated version of its AER-powered CLM P1 for a full season this time.

“We learnt a lot last year, we faced many challenges but we made very good progress against the odds however we were aware that significant improvements
needed to be made for the 2015 season,” said Boris Bermes.

“The team has worked hard since the end of least season to produce, what I believe to be a highly competitive car. As always, I'm cautiously optimistic about this year but let's see what testing brings.”
