Press Release 1-2019 VEIDEC Silver Eagle by GETSPEED


-    VEIDEC Silver Eagle by GETSPEED ready for the kick-off
-    Wim Spinoy and Kenneth Heyer aiming for the GT4-title in Belcar Endurance Championship

“What is greater than starting during the DTM?”

Last season a new team appeared on the Belgian race circuits, namely a team led by Wim Spinoy: SBM Racing. In the intermediate season the team was given a new name: that of Silver Eagle Racing, with on top of that a structure comprised not out of one, but two AMG-Mercedes GT4. Both cars will be entered in the Belcar Endurance Championship. On top of that a title sponsorship was concluded so that we are now talking about the VEIDEC Silver Eagle by GETSPEED.  

This season VEIDEC Silver Eagle by GETSPEED will be competing in the Belcar Endurance Championship with two Mercedes-AMG GT4 and with accompanying, quite clear ambitions. First and foremost, the team is out for the GT4 class title, a title that slipped through their hands during their 2018 maiden season.

Wim Spinoy (driver – team manager): “We have built up a fair amount of experience and together with the knowledge of GETSPEED, we are out to convert this into a title. It goes without saying that the 2019 season’s highpoint will be the 24 Hours of Zolder, where more than anything we have our eyes on victory in GT4.  Our AMG-Mercedes GT4 machines are highly reliable and we want to finish as high as possible in the renowned Belgian endurance race.”
 
The season’s first weekend is pretty exceptional. Not only is the Belcar Endurance Championship racing on Saturday and Sunday at Circuit Zolder, but also the world’s best-known Touring Car Championship: the DTM. Top teams, with top drivers will over two days ensure a great spectacle for the well-filled grandstands.

Wim Spinoy: “DTM is an incredible championship with nothing but great names at the start and it’s brilliant that the Belcar Championship will be a part of it throughout the weekend. On the sporting front it’s not only a challenge, but also ideal for the sponsors and partners who at first hand can see the impact motorsport has. We are delighted that the organisers of the Belcar Endurance Championship planned to open the calendar with such a brilliant weekend.”   

The Belcar Endurance Championship races take place on Saturday and Sunday, with on each occasion the start around 17.00hrs.

We will also see VEIDEC Silver Eagle by GETSPEED in a few other endurance races, among which the 24 Hours of Barcelona, the 24 Hours COTA and the 12 Hours of Dubai. Whether that will be in GT4 or GT3 has not as yet been decided. The team composition will also be made known later.
