will be significantly faster than the previous and therefore it is
a challenge challenging. Be a regular on the podium of the class LMP2 is

Simon Trummer made his debut in the WEC season 2014
the hand of Lotus -seed of the current ByKolles – on the occasion of the 6 Hours of
Bahrain. His performance convinced the team, that decided to count on the swiss to
time for the season 2015. After a start of the season ill-fated by the void
reliability of the CLM P1/01, Simon Trummer and Pierre Kaffer managed to close the
season with best feelings. With more experience and with Oliver Webb at his side, his
results -and also his pace improved throughout 2016. All in all, Simon
Trummer has not yet been able to finish an edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
