In the three races they "won" against Rebellion, they were 18th, 8th and 7th

Dillman's fairly good, at least compared to the others, he should make fairly competitive quali time. But I think 7th will be the maximum possible given the Dallaras will have insane straight line speed on Mulsanne

Really all that matters is how well Kolles do this season. Really the drivers will be wanting to make sure they get a reasonable performance from the car

It is good to see that at Spa they were reliable.

Quote:
Boris Bermes (Head of Race/Test and general operation): "Our week-end definitely started in a very concerning way, with lots of issues which clearly jeopardised our free practices here; we patiently managed to overcome these problems just before the qualifying which we started being short on track time but we still managed to recover and enjoy a good qualifying and an excellent race which leaves us with a good feeling on where we could have been without those complications".

Manfredi Ravetto (Team principal): "We considered this race as an additional step for preparing 24hrs of Le Mans and this is why we decided to run on low aerodynamical downforce configuration; I also must add that, contrary to our competitors, we were not running a specific qualifying setup also because several technical set-backs in all free practices didn't allow us to find one. Still, we delivered a race which we see as very promising in hinsight of Le Mans".

Sounds good for them. They'll have plenty time to correct that because they have a test scheduled alongside Toyota in the coming weeks. Then the test day and all the practice sessions for Le Mans. I am hopeful that this team will be able to show good pace and maybe get lucky for a podium. If they do get another car running, it needs good drivers. It's destined to have at least one pay driver.

Seems like they could improve at Le Mans. Especially if the test goes well. Well see what happens to them in time

I don't know what to think, it looks like ByKolles team have a problem to put the car back together every time they disassemble it hahaha, so if they fixed something for an specific race, it doesn't meant they can mess it all again for the next one.

Lots of things are new on the car. They suffered from issues, but so did every other lmp1 team at Spa. But hey, they finished the race and fought well with a compromised setup and with a new driver. Held on to the top 5 for a good portion of the race too. Each team has work to do especially in terms of the setup and pit stops. I guess it'll be who makes the least mistakes more than ever this time around.

The car, and drivers, ran solidly if unspectacularly all race. They stayed out of trouble and looked, to me, like they were running to a pace they were comfortable with, rather than trying to aggressively chase down others. I'd imagine a P4 result was beyond their expectations, so good job all round I say.

I wish them a good race. I think they could have a rival in DragonSpeed.

Shame their best lap got deleted. The car looks like it has potential for a sub 3:20 if they hook up a lap and if the track continues to get better. They weren't the only team to run foul on fuel flow limits as well.
