(.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 >>
