Tim Müller will make his ELMS debut in 2017 with the highly-experienced Spanish team By Speed Factory.

The German driver, who has competed in the 24H Series, taking one podium finish in 2015, will step up from a GT3 Mercedes to a LMP3 Ligier-Nissan for the six round ELMS starting at Silverstone on the 15th April.  We caught up with Tim with less than one month to the Official Test at Monza to ask him a few questions.

Q: Welcome to the ELMS.  What has attracted you to compete in the European Le Mans Series?

“I’ve been driving GT cars for 8 years and lately I have been doing long distance like 12 and 24 hours races. I’ve been looking for a new challenge so I tested LMP3 cars and while checking the options where to race we found that ELMS is the most exciting and best organised Series.”

Q: You will be racing in LMP3 with Spanish team By Speed Factory.  Have you driven the Ligier-Nissan yet and what are your thoughts on the new car?

“We had a couple of intensive test-sessions. It’s a real challenge jumping from GT3 car into a LMP3 car.  Downforce is the key and the point of LMP3. As a driver you have to learn certain things from scratch again, the fun is enormous!”

Q: What are your goals for your first season in the ELMS?

“Not crashing and to arrive somewhere in the middle-field.”

Q: Of the six circuits on the ELMS calendar, which are you looking to racing on the most and why?

“Spa is one of my very favourite tracks. I never have driven Portimão, but I was told it should be very exciting as well.”
