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.
