After several weeks of preparations, the Spork Racing Team will head to the German Nürburgring next weekend (26th, 27th of May). A few weeks ago, the kick-off of the Supercar Challenge was held in Zolder during the FIA GT1 World Championship and the team was thrilled to announce the good results afterwards. In germany, the team will reunite again to shine with both of their Supercopa’s.
The ambitions are high and the Spork Racing Team will treat the crowd with a scoop. Jimmy Adriaenssens, who performed in Zolder on Supercopa n° 323 will now share his car with his English colleague David Nye and he’ll also compete in the other Supercopa n° 325 of Jonas De Kimpe. It will be a busy weekend for the young Belgian, certainly because he’ll compete in two cars in the same races. Car n° 325 is the Petronas-Supercopa of Jonas De Kimpe. Jonas’ colleague Vincent Van Paemel is obliged elsewhere and can’t perform in Germany . Because the team couldn’t select a fast and available driver Jimmy will take Vincent’s place. After Jimmy’s stint in his Supercopa n° 323 he’ll switch to the n° 325. This scoop was discussed with the championship-organisation and was allowed if Jimmy Adriaenssens in advance advises in which car he’ll compete for the championship.
“I’m very much looking forward to our German trip. The Nürburgring GP-strecke has been on my to-do list for quite a while and although I already enjoyed the Nordschleife itself, the GP-track will still be a bit of adjusting for me. Add the characteristic weather of the Eifel Mountains and you’ll never know what’s coming for you. It will physically be a heavy weekend but I can’t complain about my personal condition. I’m in great shape and can assure you, I’ll do everything in my possibility to give the Super’SPORK’copa’s the ranking in the championship they deserve! The cars have been prepared to the slightest detail for the third and fourth round of the Supercar Challenge and as well the team as the drivers are highly motivated!” Jimmmy Adriaenssens.
Free practice and qualifying session are noted on Friday, both sprint-races will be held on Saturday and Sunday!
