Welcome



The Inter Europol Competition team started in 2010 when Kuba Smiechowski entered a Formula Renault 2.0 in the FR2.0 Northern European Cup. Since then, the team has run a number of different cars in different championships, but it was not until 2016 that the team started in endurance racing.

2022

Luckily this year, the world looks ‘normal’ again. We entered one LMP3 in Asian Le Mans Series with two races in Dubai and two in Abu Dhabi over two weekends.

In the European Le Mans Series, we race with the #13 and #14 Ligier LMP3, plus our Oreca LMP2 car. We are not running our usual number 34 but with the #43.

And once again, we will race in the WEC with our LMP2 #34. In the 24 Hours of Le Mans, a second LMP2 is entered (#43).

2021

Our first year with our new Oreca LMP2 #34 in the World Endurance Championship. We were the first Polish team in the history of the WEC and finished 5th.

And for the third time participated in 24 Hours of Le Mans (as part of the WEC season). We finished 5th. And very proud we were!

In 2018, 2019, and 2020 the #13 finished as Vice-Champion LMP3 in the European Le Mans Series.

2020

Due to the Covid pandemic, the team only ran the #13 LMP3 and the #34 LMP2 in the European Le Mans Series. But despite the worldwide pandemic, the team made the trip to the USA and participated with an LMP2 in the IMSA Petit Le Mans and the Sebring 12 hours. And we were back again in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

2019 – 2020

Back to the Asian Le Mans Series. This time with four cars: two LMP3 and two LMP2.

2019

Our green and yellow #34 Ligier LMP2 raced in the 87th edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. In the ELMS, we ran two Ligier LMP3 and joined for the first time by the #34 Ligier LMP2. One LMP3 also took part in the Ultimate Cup Series.

2018 – 2019

One LMP3 raced in the Asian Le Mans Series with one goal: to get an entry to the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Kuba Smiechowski and Martin Hippe won the LMP3 class (2 wins and 2 second places), and the dream came true.

2018

We entered two LMP3s in the European Le Mans Series and two LMP3s in the VdeV Championship.

2017

Two Ligier LMP3 competed to win in the VdeV (and the one did) and one in the European Le Mans Series. One LMP3 raced the entire GT& Prototype Challenge, and the second one in three races only.

2016

In our first year in endurance racing, we entered the VdeV Championship with one Ligier LMP3 and won the championship! One LMP3 also raced in the European Le Mans Series.

The people who work for the team come from Germany, Poland, England, Sweden, Hungary, France, Italy, Spain, Holland, Belarus, and the Czech Republic. A truly international team with dedication and years of experience.

Since 2010 Inter Europol has been the main sponsor. Inter Europol is a Polish bakery near Warsaw (Poland) that delivers bread and bread-related products to over 30 countries worldwide. Their customers are airlines, hotels, fuel stations, etc. The chance that you ate their bread at one time or another is very likely.

The colours green and yellow on the car are those of Inter Europol and are inspired by lush green fields and the sun.

LUCK WAS NOWHERE TO BE FOUND

LUCK WAS NOWHERE TO BE FOUND

Unfortunately, for the Inter Europol Competition team, it was another weekend with results to forget. Not because the drivers were not hugely motivated and fast (they were), or that the cars had no speed (they had) or were not well prepared (they were). Just no luck; it was nowhere to be found.

 

In short: getting hit by another car when in fifth position on lap three and then having to come in for extensive repairs (LMP3 #13); lying in third place with the first podium finish in sight, and then ending up in the gravel just two laps before the end (LMP3 #14), or just missing the opportunities of using any of the six full course yellow windows to your advantage (LMP2 #43).

A good result would have been very rewarding for the mechanics, engineers and all others in the team who worked extremely hard over the last couple of weeks. They have been on the road nearly full time with two WEC and ELMS races back to back and some testing in between.

But, with Le Mans on the horizon and with a two-car team entry in prospect, perhaps it was better to get the bad luck out of the way this week!

Noam Abramczyk: “It was a pretty good race as we qualified in P3, and in the race, we took the lead on the second lap. James and Mateusz both did a great job, but unfortunately, we had a mechanical issue at the end with only 5 minutes to go. Tough luck, but that is also racing.”

 

 

 

 

Guilherme Oliveira: “We finished our second ELMS race today. It was a hard-luck day because we had a really bad start. Charles could not avoid contact with a Ferrari, and we compromised all of our race. We had to come in for repairs for three-quarters of an hour. We did our best to recover and still could score some points. I was happy with my stint. We live and learn and now full focus on Monza.”

Fabio Scherer: “The car was pretty good today and had a solid pace. Pace for P4 or P5. The problem, in my opinion, was that we hit every full course yellow wrong. And then you don’t have to look at your pace or where you are; you lose 40 or so seconds every time. Now onto Le Mans.”

Sascha Fassbender (team manager): “With the #13, we were very unlucky early in the race. But the guys in the box did a super job to get the car back on track. With the #14, we were on our way to the podium, but it was stranded with the finish line in sight. I am really sorry for the crew; they earned it. With the #43, we did not have a spectacular race and were also unlucky with the full course yellow. Now we focus on Le Mans.”
