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.

An exciting, rewarding race yields P4 at WEC Monza for Inter Europol Competition

An exciting, rewarding race yields P4 at WEC Monza for Inter Europol Competition

It’s been a successful week for Inter Europol Competition at Monza, equalling the team’s best result in the FIA World Endurance Championship, off the back of a great win last Sunday in the European Le Mans Series. It’s been equally memorable, underlining the strength and depth of this growing Polish team on the international motorsport stage.

The six hours of Monza began practice, and then qualifying, where Esteban was unfortunate to lose out with late session red flags, meaning that Kuba would start the race in tenth position in the LMP2 class. Under the blue skies of Monza, the racing got underway with Kuba performing well to gain position and run ninth while keeping the #38 Jota behind in those early stages.

Alex was in next aboard the #34 Oreca, quickly re-catching the #38 and then repassing for position on track. He quickly set his sights on positions ahead, moving between third and seventh during the pitstop cycles. It was a strong run from Alex, handing over to Esteban for a triple stint, allowing the Mexican racer to run at the front on numerous occasions as the team looked at strategy options for the final third of the race.

Alex was back in for the final two stints to the chequered flag, once again running out-front before pitting with 36 minutes remaining. As it was, he was tight on fuel and was not able to push his rivals ahead as he would have liked.

Fourth position however remains the team’s best result in the series as they now look forward to the forthcoming challenges in both LMP2 and LMP3.

Sascha Fassbender, Team Manager
“It’s a good result, the best we have achieved since we first entered the FIA World Endurance Championship. We had a difficult start to the season, but we have risen to the challenge and have improved and P4 is the very start of what we want to achieve and that is to race – on merit – in the top five. So, we will push harder to ensure that we hit the ground running at Fuji and a great thanks to all of the drivers today who did a great job. I’m proud of the pit crew who made no mistakes to help us achieve this result.”

Jakub (Kuba) Śmiechowski
“We started P10 and I was trying to keep the tyres alive throughout, but in the second stint the car was starting to slide a little, so I couldn’t push as I would have liked. In general, we are all very happy with this P4. The whole team did a great job, as did the drivers Alex and Esteban, so overall it’s a wonderful result for the team.”

Alex Brundle
“The step forward we have taken forward this year is clear. I gave it my all to try and secure the podium position, but we couldn’t quite manage it this time just because the way the race fell, and in having to save fuel for the final stint was the real nail in the coffin for our podium ambitions. However, it’s also great to help bring home the best result for the team yet in FIA WEC and it’s another good step forwards after a difficult start to the season. All the team members thoroughly deserve this result and much more.”

Esteban Gutiérrez
“It was good to be able to run at the front of the field and I managed to keep them behind whilst managing my tyres. Of course, it’s been hot this weekend and choosing to do three stints at a time made it more difficult for us to manage the tyres from behind the wheel and then it was over to Alex to finish the race.”
