Details of ByKolles Racing’s LMP1 program are set to be revealed during an online launch next month, the team confirmed Friday.

The team formerly known as Lotus LMP1 will run its CLM P1/01 AER in the FIA World Endurance Championship this season, with Simon Trummer having been the only confirmed driver thus far.

Now running under the Austrian banner, the German-based squad is believed to announce an innovative sponsorship program.

The formal launch is set for March 10 at 10:10 a.m. CET (4:10 am. ET) on the team’s official website.

ByKolles will be the only LMP1 privateer team present in April’s season-opening Six Hours of Silverstone, due to Rebellion Racing’s late start to the season due to its switch to AER power.

The CLM P1/01 AER, meanwhile, has undergone significant off-season developments, including new suspension, reduced weight and aerodynamic enhancements.
