PROSPEED, HOW BETTER STILL TO END THE COMPETITION?

GRÂCE-HOLLOGNE (BEL) – The victory of the 911 GT3-R in the colours of Alcra Flash-CMF-MoWeko during the last meeting held at the Nürburgring allowed ProSpeed Competition to brilliantly prove their worth in the Blancpain Endurance Series scene, the European endurance championship for Grand Touring cars. A first season that ProSpeed Competition wishes to end with a podium in the “Professional” rankings, and at the same time grabbing the best “rookie” title. In the “Drivers” rankings the third place is also the main objective of Marc Goossens, Xavier Maassen and Marc Hennerici, the crew manning the powerful Porsche #75. The final round of the Blancpain Endurance Series will be held at the Navarra circuit, on 13th and 14th October coming. This is also the ideal opportunity for Paul Van Splunteren, Maxime Soulet and Dylan Derdaele to confirm the brilliant rise up through the ranks of the 911 GT3-R #74 bearing the NEC-Remeha-Soleco in the “Pro-Am” class.

PROSPEED COMPETITION LORD OF THE RING

NÜRBURGRING (GER) – Every team is out to win on one of the world's most renowned circuits, and that is exactly what ProSpeed Competition achieved in the fifth round of the Blancpain Endurance Series. Marc Goossens, Xavier Maassen and Marc Hennerici, at the wheel of the Porsche Alcra Flash-CMF-MoWeKo bearing number #75, clinched victory on the Nürburgring following a brilliant race. With a half second bonus on their nearest rivals they provided the spectators with a nail biting thriller. In addition Marc Goossens, Xavier Maassen and Marc Hennerici have now climbed up to third place in the championship, the same spot that ProSpeed Competition also holds in the team rankings. In the Porsche 911 GT3-R (#74) in the colours of NEC-Remeha-Soleco, it also looked as though Paul Van Splunteren, Maxime Soulet and Dylan Derdaele would claim victory in the Pro/Am-Cup. The battle was so fierce that the tyres and brakes suffered to such an extent that they had to content themselves finally with a fifth place in the class..

THE PORSCHE 911 GT3-R MUST PLAY A LEADING ROLE

GRÂCE-HOLLOGNE (BEL) – Following the recent successful hard fought top-level battle during the recent 24 Hours of Zolder, the outcome proved the Porsche 911 GT3-R to be a formidable competitor in endurance events. The local regulations, devoid of any intricate technical sporting aspects, gave all teams the opportunity to offer spectators a top quality spectacle. The two leading “FIA GT3” cars were separated by a mere six seconds… after twenty-three hours of racing. A revelation. ProSpeed Competition will be doing everything within its power to repeat such a demonstration during the fifth meeting of the Blancpain Endurance Series. The event will be held on the Nürburgring circuit, on 22nd and 23rd September next. Marc Goossens and Xavier Maassen will be supporting the “local hero”, Marc Hennerici, at the wheel of the Porsche Alcra Flash-CMF-MoWeKo #75. Entered in the Pro-Am category, the 911 GT3-R #74 bearing the NEC-Remeha-Soleco colours will, as usual, be in the hands of Paul Van Splunteren, Maxime Soulet et Dylan Derdaele.

24 HOURS OF ZOLDER - REVIEW

PROSPEED AND PORSCHE ALSO BEAT THE DISTANCE RECORD

ZOLDER (B) – The overall highlight of these 24 Hours of Zolder 2012 was undoubtedly the fierce duel between the winning car and the “Goossens-Soulet-Redant-Bouvy” quartet. The most difficult endurance race in Europe came to its conclusion at the end of Sunday morning. The intense pace and the overwhelming heat hovering over the Limburg circuit were two factors that considerably increased the brake wear, which required more frequent changing. Up until then the Porsche 911 GT3-R in the colours of Century 21-Alcra Flash-Spike Communications had dominated the race. After an epic 24 hours the German GT finally finished second… and at the same time beating the record for the number of laps completed.

PROSPEED COMPETITION JOINS THE BATTLE

GRÂCE-HOLLOGNE – An undeniable event of the Belgian motorsport season, the 24 Hours of Zolder has found its slot in the ProSpeed Competition calendar. A race that the Belgian team will be taking on with the fearsome Porsche 911 GT3-R bearing the livery of Century 21, Alcra Flash and Spike Communications. Four times winner of the event, Marc Goossens will be joined by his ‘partner in crime’ Maxime Soulet… with whom he scored back in 2007. The presence of the fast Bert Redant and Frédéric Bouvy, the team’s ‘in house’ reference driver when it comes to the Belgian Championship, undoubtedly places the Porsche #75 as one of the event’s favourites. In the workshop, annexed to Penders Porsche Centre Liège, Luc Goris and his team are presently fine-tuning the car. What with the other competitors in the GT3 class, as also other Porsche 911s and Prototypes it will be a very open race.
