Tom Dillman has taken his first laps in the ENSO CLM P1/01 during a three-day test for the ByKolles Racing team in preparation for a FIA World Endurance Championship return.

The 2016 Formula V8 3.5 Series champion was one of several drivers, including Oliver Webb, James Rossiter, Edoardo Liberati and Mikael Grenier, to get behind the wheel of the car.

The three-day test took place at the MotorLand Aragon circuit in Spain to test new development parts on the team’s upgraded NISMO-powered car.

ByKolles is set to return to the FIA WEC for the 2018-19 ‘Super Season’ with a currently unconfirmed driver lineup.

“We are pleased with the progresses made on both reliability and performance,” said director of racing operations Boris Bermes.

“All drivers did a solid job and our team is happy to attract such young and competitive drivers.”
