BMW Sports Trophy Team Marc VDS will field a third BMW Z4 GT3 at the Total 24 Hours of Spa. The Belgian outfit team up with Pascal Witmeur, a long term friend of Marc VDS and Belgian motorsport, for Marc VDS & Friends Racing Against Cancer. Witmeur will drive, alongside fellow Belgians Marc Duez, Eric Van De Poele and Jean-Michel Martin.
The format of their race will be a little different to that of the rest of the field. Each driver will drive a single 24-minute stint during the race, one at the start, one on Saturday evening, one on Sunday at noon and the final 24 minutes of the race. The shorter running time will equate to less running cost, and more proceeds from the appeal going directly to charity – the Belgian Foundation against Cancer.
Supporters can get involved in several ways, and should contact Pascal Witmeur directly to register interest: firstname.lastname@example.org
Bas Leinders, Team Principal: “I’ve known Pascal for a very long time. He is a fantastic character, and his determination and drive showed through when he beat this illness. As soon as I heard about his idea for this car, I knew we had to make it happen. This is an extremely important cause, and I’m glad we found a way that would maximise the funds that go directly to the Belgian Foundation against Cancer. I know this is going to be a well-liked effort.”
