ProSpeed Competition, “Leadership” and Apprenticeship

GRACE-HOLLOGNE (B) – For the second time this season, the Belgian Touring and Grand Touring championship will be calling in at Spa Francorchamps. A circuit that the two ProSpeed Competition Porsche 911 GT3s know only too well. A circuit where the two German muscle cars- and their drivers … - know how to show off their full worth. Heading up the” Short Races” championship, Frédéric Bouvy has every intention of defending his “leadership”. The fast Red Bull driver will be back in action with Christian Kelders and Damien Coens at the wheel of the Superdry-Real Dolmen 911 GT3 RS. Ideally placed in an ambush position in the “Long Race” competition, Didier Grandjean, Pascal Muller and Chris Mattheus will be carrying on their progress. The 911 GT3 Cup #60 in the Colen-Freeman T.Porter-Quick colours is no unknown on the podiums. This has undoubtedly become one of the pleasant surprises of the season’s beginning. To put together a team of three drivers, all out to come to perfection and bring together and integrate into a professional organisation is no mean feat. In fact it boiled down to bringing together Didier Grandjean, Pascal Muller, Chris Mattheus and the ProSpeed Competition team. A choice that no one has looked back on if one takes into account theatmosphere, relaxed attitude… … but quite so studious, which has been on hand since the start of the season in the Liege based team’s workshops. The challenge is also highly successful when one takes a look at the results achieved. At the wheel of the Porsche #60 the trio achieved a perfect initial weekend on the demanding Zolder circuit. At the  following meeting, in Francorchamps, we discovered them… on the podium!

ProSpeed Competition looking for... the sun!

GRÂCE-HOLLOGNE – Rinsed down in Monza, soaked in Silverstone, what does the weather now hold in store for the Blancpain Endurances Series 2012 competitors? We will soon know. This Tuesday evening the two ProSpeed Competition trucks will be heading on down to the Paul Ricard circuit, an ultramodern track nestled in the heart of the Var department (France). Here Marc Goossens, Xavier Maassen and Marc Hennerici will be reunited with the Porsche 911 GT3-R #75 bearing the Alcra Flash-CMF-MoWeKo colours. The #74, entered in the “Pro-Am” category with the support of NEC and Soleco, will once again be in the hands of Paul Van Splunteren, Maxime Soulet and Dylan Derdaele. For these two ProSpeed Competition teams this will be the final meeting before the 24 Hours of Spa… Monza, Silverstone, Paul Ricard… one fast track after another. A constant, that unfortunately also appears to go hand in hand with the climatic conditions. Back in Italy the celestial floodgates only had eyes for the Autodromo track. Similarly in England the Silverstone circuit did not escape the deluge that hit the entire country. But where is the sun?

Prospeed Competition faces up to the "Le Mans" Myth

LE MANS (F) – No way will this edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans be anything but a pure mythical endurance event. Looking back at the overall rankings various teams played up front. ProSpeed Competition was in a way part and parcel of this. When the team asked their drivers to go into “full attack”, their Porsche Spectra Resources-Saudi Sports Group had already experienced flats, the equivalent of six laps. Here we weren’t talking about tenths of seconds of the qualifying sessions, neither of the “leadership” in the LM GTE Am category at the beginning of the race. Unfortunately Abdulaziz Al Faisal, Bret Curtis and Sean Edwards did not cross the finish line. The Porsche #75 crashed and was severely damaged.
