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.

FAULTLESS RUN AT LE MANS 24 HOURS

FAULTLESS RUN AT LE MANS 24 HOURS

For the first time in the history of the Inter Europol Competition team, two LMP2 were entered into the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans. This is what the drivers said after finishing 13th and 14th in the 90thedition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

#34 Esteban Gutierrez

“The full Le Mans experience is very special, and it’s a full ten days of activities on and off the track. I’ve really enjoyed sharing the experience with Inter Europol Competition. It’s been a great experience, and it’s the longest race I have ever done. I’ve enjoyed the challenge, and it’s been positive on track, even if it is not the result that we wanted. Race pace and average lap times in the stint have been good, and for me personally, I have been pushing and trying to maximise every stint and make the most of any opportunities.”

#34 Alex Brundle

“It’s been solid, but we’ve lacked a little in many areas. We’ve actually run a very good race and kept the car out of trouble for a solid run, but the speed has just not been there. The team and the drivers have shaken the tree all week with the suppliers to make sure we get the things we need, the parts we need, to try to improve our setup, but basically, it’s been a frustrating week. That said, we’ve finished another 24 Hours of Le Mans, and it’s tough to finish these races, so congratulations to the team.”

#43 Fabio Scherer

“Le Mans is Le Mans, and it’s just magic, but as we found out this weekend, it can also be a pain in the butt. We all drove well, with no mistakes, while the team did a fantastic job and we looked set for a very special podium. Then we had a small engine problem, and that opportunity was lost. I think we did the best we possibly could and I’m happy with my own performance in the car, the team performance, but it wasn’t the result we expected.”

#34 Kuba Smiechowski

“It’s been a tough and challenging race week in general. We had some issues with the car in between the warmup session and the race, so we had to change both the gearbox and engine; the guys did an incredible job completing that in one-and-a-half hours, an amazing effort. The result is not what we hoped for, but we did get through the race without any major mechanical issues, and the cars were well prepared. We spend some time analysing the event, looking for gaps in our performance to come back stronger at Monza.”

#43 David Heinemeier Hanson

“There are many good things to take away; we finished with both the cars. They showed they had pace, maybe not the reliability or the outright pace. Still, we were up there. I now have done nine 24 Hours of Le Mans, and this is one of the better ones. It would have been nice to see where we would have been without the extra minutes in the pits. It is wonderful to see all the fans, and no rain during the race. I had some good battles and some wonderful stints, and I really enjoyed Le Mans. It’s awesome.”

 #43 Pietro Fittipaldi

“Le Mans has been an incredible experience, one where you need plenty of perseverance as now – at the end of all this – I’m feeling destroyed. It was hard to get much sleep at night and then eight-and-a-half hours in the car, the most I have ever run, for my first 24-hour race.”

“The team and all of the drivers executed really well, with a strong pace to get the car up to P7, and we were there, nice and steady. I think conservatively, we had a shot at sixth or seventh and, if a bit lucky, top five. We brought the car home; nobody made any mistakes, so we can be proud of that.”

Sascha Fassbender (Team Manager)

“It was our first time with two LMP2s, and this was obviously a big challenge for the team. We had an added complication in that the second car we expected to race was not delivered on time and we relied on an outside supplier.

“We prepared both cars to a very high standard, and we finished the race with no technical issues within our control, which was unfortunate, as it cost us a much better result. The team worked so hard, way above and beyond what we could reasonably expect, and so my sincere thanks to them all.”
