After a succesfull beginning of the season, in which Jimmy Adriaenssens has succesfully built out his share in the Supersport-division, he will again compete in two Seat Supercopas in Spa-Francorchamps next weekend (23rd – 24th of June), just like in Germany a few weeks ago.
As usual ‘AJ’ will defend the honor of the Spork Racing Team in his very own Supercopa n° 323, the car which he’ll share with David Nye and in which he’ll fight for the championship. The other Supercopa he’ll be driving is car n° 324 from Wim De Graef – Kris Van Kelst. Kris Van Kelst, who unfortunately couldn’t participate this weekend, will entrust his ride to our young Belgian. “My stunt at the Nürburgring was much appreciated by many, regarding all the positive comments I received after the races. Therefore I didn’t hesitate for long when Wim De Graef asked me to assist him in his Supercopa. I will do the best I can for Wim, David Nye, the complete Spork Racing Team, as for myself to get our Super’SPORK’copas as far in front as I can. Because now we’ll share the racetrack will the (Super)GT’s also, it is hard to determine where we’ll finish in the pack, but we’ll for sure try to get as much cars as possible underneath us on the TV-screens. I’m very much looking forward to the meetings and I hope to treat the crowd with nice spectacle!” a highly motivated Jimmy Adriaenssens.
This time also, a well-prepared team-timing has to lead to success. Jimmy will alternately race the first stint in his car, pit immediately when the pit window is opened, leave car n° 323 to his colleague David Nye, attend Supercopa n° 324 to fullfill the race in Wim De Graef’s car en vice versa.
Friday midday 12.15h, the kick-off of the first free practice of the Supercar Challenge is given. The Spork Racing Team confirmed to be well-prepared for their appointment on Belgian soil!
