Ready to try for another podium finish

The Inter Europol Competition team is ready for more. More podium finishes that is. This coming weekend Martin Hippe and Kuba Smiechowski will try to get another podium finish in the penultimate round of the European Le Mans Series 2017 at Spa Francorchamps (23/24 September). After the weekend at Spa with the ELMS, the Inter Europol Competition team will remain there to defend their first place in the GT&Prototype Challenge. The weekend after that, the team will join the VdeV at Magny Cours. Busy times ahead.

Martin Hippe: “I am still completely thrilled about our second place at Paul Ricard. The complete team did an amazing job. But exactly this success made us hungry for more results like this. After finishing in second place that was so close to first, you always want more. And I think Spa could be a really good track for us. I had a good test here with our LMP3 to learn the, for me unknown, track. I felt really comfortable in the car and times weren’t that bad either. With this good feeling and the result from the last ELMS race, I hope it will be another good weekend for us.”

Kuba Smiechowski: “I’m very excited to get back in the car after two weekends not racing. Obviously, Spa is an amazing racetrack and almost everyone likes to race here. I really want to improve our results in qualifying, though in the race we have always been able to move up and finish well. And of course, I wouldn’t mind to be on the podium like we were at Paul Ricard.”
