Willebroek. The 2017 season is only just around the corner and champions team DVB RACING is already focussing on preparing for the 2018 season. Similar to the previous season the Belcar Endurance Championship and the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Benelux are on the programme, with the Supercar Challenge 2018 and the European GT4 2018 also on the team’s to do-list.
Refreshing the memory can do no harm, because this season DVB RACING definitely excelled in the Benelux motorsport world. With a victory in the third round of the Belcar Endurance, victory in the 24 Hours of Zolder and the title in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Benelux, 2017 was undoubtedly a strong season. The Antwerp based team has every intention to continue on that high note in 2018 and new challenges are on the books.
“We will indeed be once again be competing in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Benelux, with one or possibly two new Porsche GT3 Cup, where we will be defending the title. We will also be entering two Porsche 911 machines in the Supercar Challenge 2018. It goes without saying that the Belcar Endurance Championship is on our menu, with once again most probably a Prototype, seeing these cars will also still be on the books in 2018 and had proved their reliability in 2017.”
Striking to note is that DVB RACING also has an entirely new project in the pipeline. The GT4 is presently one of the fastest growing international series in Europe. This is why the team decided to acquire a Ford Mustang GT4, to be entered by DVB RACING, in the European GT4 Series, however other championships could well be among the possibilities.
“The Mustang GT4 is one of the latest generation of GT4 cars, a true racing car with a strong power unit. Absolute numbers are not that important seeing the organisers work with a Balance of Performance, making the cars evenly matched. The 600 bhp produced is undoubtedly an ideal basis to make the car competitive, after all there is sufficient potential, but it can also be the perfect basis for the longer races where the BoP does not apply, such as with Creventic or during the 24 Hours of Zolder. On top of that the Mustang is a car with an exceptional charisma and a myth among the enthusiasts, making it an ideal billboard for potential partners.”
