Welcome



Since 2010 the Inter Europol Competition team runs different cars in different championships. It all started with the Formula Renault 2.0 in the FR2.0 Northern European Cup and other single seater championships. Then in 2016 the team started racing with the LMP3. It won the VdeV championship both in 2016 and 2017. It entered one LMP3 in the European Le Mans Series in 2017 and in 2018, and two LMP3 and one LMP2 in 2019. In 2018, 2019 and 2020 the team finished as Vice Champion LMP3 in the European Le Mans Series.

 

In the 2018-2019 season of the Asian Le Mans Series, the team entered one LMP3 with one goal: to get an entry to the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The goal was reached with two wins and two second places. Kuba Smiechowski and Martin Hippe won the LMP3 class and the team entered #34 LMP2 in the 87th edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans and finished 16th in class in 2019.

The team also participated with two LMP3 and two LMP2 in the Asian Le Mans Series 2019-2020 season.

Due to the current health crisis, the team ran one Ligier LMP2 and one new Ligier LMP3 in the 2020 European Le Mans Series season. And, for the second year running, the team participated with a Ligier LMP2 in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

 

Even with all health restrictions in place, the team entered and raced with an Oreca LMP2 in the IMSA Petit Le Mans race and in the Sebring 12 Hours as preparation for their entry in the 2021 World Endurance Championship with their own Oreca 07 LMP2. The Inter Europol Competition team is the first Polish team in the history of the WEC.

 

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

In 2010 Inter Europol became the main sponsor. Inter Europol is a Polish bakery situated near Warsaw (Poland) which 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.

4th place… best result so far

The Inter Europol Competition team finished fourth in the 6 Hours of Monza. With only three starts in the World Endurance Championship, this is their best result with the Oreca #34 LMP2 so far. Even a drive-through penalty did not spoil the race for Kuba Smiechowski, Alex Brundle and Renger van der Zande and the rest of the team.

 

After a somewhat disappointing 8th place in qualifying, Brundle started the race and quickly moved up to 6th. In turn 1 of lap 17, Brundle came into contact with the #70 which resulted in the drive-through penalty. Brundle was in 10th place going into the second hour.

 

Renger van der Zande took over from Brundle and moved up to 8th. In the third hour Van der Zande moved up to 3rd place, when he handed the car to Kuba Smiechowski. Smiechowski was 4th after four hours. In the 5thhour of the race, Brundle took the wheel from Smiechowski and was, going into the last hour, back to third place. But after a fuel stop, he dropped to fourth and that became the final result.

 

Sascha Fassbender (team manager):“It was an eventful race with up to now, the best result. So far, we have only improved and that gives us hope for Le Mans. At the beginning we had the drive-through penalty which resulted in a bad position on the grid. But that actually got us a lap back in the safety car period, putting us in fourth place. At the end of the race we were fighting for third place but a full course yellow in the last half hour, gave our competitior the time to come in for fuel and we finished fourth. After two full weeks here in Monza I am very proud of the team as they gave it their full on both race weekends. A big thank you to the team.”

 

Renger van der Zande: “I am proud of the team. It’s the third race in a row, that the team has made no mistakes and that is not easy in this championship. We have been steadily improving the car and Monza was a good preparation for Le Mans. I think we have a great driver line-up and we work very well together. And now the big one in a month time.”

 

 

Alex Brundle: “Firstly, a better result means a better race. Then, it is heartening to see that the pace is improving versus our competitors, who are considerably more experienced than us. A podium finish feels much closer now and I am sure that we are not too far away to be on the rostrum.”

 

Kuba Smiechowski: “Fourth place is a pretty good result. Quali was difficult and I am not sure what the problem was, but we came back from it in the race. We had a really good car and the strategy was good too.”
