Tom Dillmann is set for his race debut with ByKolles, having been confirmed alongside the returning Dominik Kraihamer and Oliver Webb for next month’s FIA World Endurance Championship season-opener at Spa.

The 29-year-old Frenchman will make his LMP1 debut at the wheel of the team’s ENSO CLM P1/01 NISMO, following multiple pre-season tests with the car, including at the WEC Prologue earlier this month.

While the team has yet to announce its full-season lineup, both Dillmann and Kraihamer are expected to drive for the balance of the 2018-19 ‘Super Season’ alongside the previously confirmed Oliver Webb.

Kraihamer, meanwhile, is set for his second season with ByKolles, after taking part in the four races the team entered last year.

The Manfredi Ravetto-led operation, which has tested nearly a dozen drivers since late last year, is planning to enter a second CLM, beginning with the third round of the season at Silverstone in August.
