Tom Dillmann was one of the pilots called for ByKolles in order to test the Enso CLM P1/01 in the test that the training performed by LMP1 in MotorLand Aragon. Champion of the Formula V8 3.5, the French joined Oliver Webb and James Rossiter, common drivers of the team, as well as to other young riders to help in the development of the prototype of the computer. After this test, Dillmann has shown to be very interested in having a seat at the full-time ByKolles ahead of the season 2018-19 WEC, to be able to return to the competition of the first level after passing through the Formula E.
“I Received a call from Kolles asking me to try the car and I help with the development, porqueestán planning a big step for next year. Wanted to see if he could be an option for next year, in addition to seeking my opinion on the news. It all went well. It was a test really productive. The car was nice to drive the engine, Nissan has a lot of power. It was nice because this year I just did GT and Formula E so it was good to be back in a car with this much power and high-downforce“ has explained Tom Dillmann on this test.
Although ByKolles is scheduled to have a new tst during the month of December, Tom Dillmann has been recognized that not know whether he will return to ride in the LMP1 team, although it has no problem in recognizing that to compete in LMP1 full-time is now your big goal: “In LMP2 the market it is difficult for pilots like me, who come to compete in single-seaters and we cannot make budget. It is easy for teams to sell their seats to the highest bidder if you have an experienced pilot. It is difficult to fight against that, that’s why I think that my best option is to find a seat in LMP1“.
