Briton Oliver Webb competed in the LMP1 class of the FIA World Endurance Championship for the first time during the Six Hours of Silverstone, and along with Team ByKolles team-mates Simon Trummer and James Rossiter completed the podium in the LMP1 independent category.

A rear suspension issue denied the team the opportunity to challenge the Rebellion Racing team for class honours, but the trio brought the car home to the chequered flag, and Webb was delighted to take silverwear home in front of his home crowd.

“To race in front of a home crowd is always a special feeling and to see a packed out grandstand on the main straight was incredible,” said Webb, who is a former European Le Mans Series champion back in 2014 with Signatech Alpine.

“I had friends, family and partners supporting me here this weekend so there was a great buzz about the whole thing and although we didn’t get the class win we wanted we’re content with P3 and some silverwear and can clearly see the potential for the rest of the season.”
