ByKolles will use the engine of the Nissan GT-R LM Nismo in 2017


ByKolles Racing has given a new shift to your project in the
WEC. The private training will be taking the season 2017 with a new propellant in its
CLM P1/01 after reaching a supply agreement with Nissan. In this way, the
LMP1-L of the computer stops to mount the engine 2.4-liter biturbo AER to
to install the engine V6 3.0 liter Nissan that rode in the Nissan
GT-R LM Nismo
. The integration of the propellant V6 Turbo from the japanese brand
will come from improvements in the chassis and other components
mechanics of the prototype.

ByKolles will be the only formation that will compete with an LMP1
in 2017, after the change of plans of Rebellion Racing, but this is not
impediment to the formation you want to leave behind the recurring problems
mechanics who took the CLM P1/01 in 2016
and who on many occasions had to
do with the engine, the AER and its cooling. In this aspect, ByKolles expected
improve with the V6 engine, of 3.0 liters of Nissan in terms of reliability and
, after achieving its integration with the transmission Xtrac. In addition, the
theoretical evolution mechanics will come from the hand of a modification to the kit
aerodynamic model.

The decision to use the engine Nissan VRX 30A EVO also
to meet the need to mark differences with respect to the new generation of
that have been designed Oreca, Onroak, Dallara and Riley-Multimatic. The pace
demonstrated by the prototypes of the second category of the WEC might as well
threaten the status of ByKolles, something that you can’t let a team that
it has also announced the firm intended to sell its CLM P1/01 to
private computers
of face-to-2018 to the growing market of LMP1-L. The team
offer you the possibility to sell the chassis to adapt other thrusters.
