Belgian team ProSpeed Competition will once again take part in the Le Man Series in 2011. The team will enter a 2011 spec Porsche 911 GT3 RSR into the LM GTE class, with experienced Belgian Marc Goossens leading the driving line up. He will be joined by young German Marco Holzer, as part of the team's continued collaboration with Porsche Motorsport.
ProSpeed will head to the South of Europe in February to begin private testing, before the series' official test days, ahead of the season opener in April. They enter the season in high spirits, after a successful 2010 which saw them win the FIA GT3 European Team's Championship and finish runner up in the Drivers' Championship.
ProSpeed Team Principal Rudi Penders said: “We ended the 2010 Le Mans Series on a high with a second place in Silverstone and 2011 has to go in the same direction. Today we know that all the necessary elements of new success are there, a brand new and performing car, a very strong driver line-up, the intense collaboration with Porsche Motorsport, our partnership with CPL Trans-Alcra Flash and of course our own experience and knowledge. If all those elements come together in a proper way, we should be able to be successful.”
The team's major backer will once again be Belgian transport and haulage group CPL Trans-Alcra Flash, with Charles Vande Craen from the company saying: “The reason why we continue and even intensify our collaboration with ProSpeed Competition is obvious. For our company it's very important to support a major partner in an international environment, especially as a major autosport brand such as Porsche is also involved in the Le Mans Series project. Our aim is to be successful and we can only be successful if there is a 100% commitment of all members of the team, something we also try to achieve with our company. We feel that we have a lot in common with ProSpeed Competition and that we share the same values.”
