Superb ELMS debut 4th place for Team Russia By Barwell at Silverstone GP
Following the excellent start Barwell Motorsport made to our 2014 race season one week ago in the opening round of the Blancpain Endurance Series at Monza, there was no let up for our hard working team as the Easter bank holiday weekend saw us start our campaigns in both the European Le Mans Series (ELMS) and the British GT Championship as well!

It looked like Pegasus Racing was all set to kick off the 2014 season in style on its return to the European endurance elite. The meeting began under blue skies in Britain that matched the blue on the bodywork of the Alsatian team's Morgan-Nissan LM P2, which did not run into any problems prior to the race. The car was quick and its drivers Jonathan Coleman, Niki Leutwiler and Julien Schell were very happy with it. Unfortunately as no. 29 was running in seventh place and about to score its first points in the championship, it stopped on the circuit out of fuel 90 minutes from the chequered flag!Read more >>

(.news_categ_categ_title.)2014/04/20 Prospeed, the safety-car… did not secure the result!
If there's one circuit where the numerous qualities of the Porsche 911 do not come into their own it is undoubtedly Silverstone. Ranked in fourth place the Paul Van Splunteren (NDL), Gilles Vannelet (FRA) and Maxime Soulet (BEL) trio headed off for a top rate performance. However this was without taking into account an off-road excursion of an LMP2 prototype and the appearance of the safety-car. 45 minutes of the race remained and this race incident ruined the Belgian team's performance. On the other this first meeting of the European Le Mans Series fully confirms ProSpeed Competition's ambitionsat the dawn of the season. One and all will need to keep a close eye on the bluewhite liveried Porsche bearing the colours of NEC-Serfim-Remeha-6ème Sens in the following rounds. The second meeting of the ELMS, the European Endurance Championship will take place at Imola (ITA) during mid-May.Read more >>
