Dutchmen For SRT Corvette
Dutchmen David Hart and Jeroen Bleekemolen will drive the no.1 SRT Corvette C5-R in the MVD Belcar series in 2006. 24 year old Jeroen Bleekemolen drove in the DTM in 2004 and proved himself in GT racing, again, in the GLPK-Carsport Corvette during the Proximus 24 hours of Spa, and in Spyker’s LMES programme. He replaces Marc Goossens at SRT this year, alongside David Hart – Goossens was the Belcar Champion and winner of the Drivers’ Challenge in 2005.

Team owner Patrick Selleslagh: “I’m very happy with the arrival of Jeroen Bleekemolen. He’s a very good driver and he understands that the task of replacing Marc Goossens within the team will not be an easy one. Jeroen is also a perfect answer to the sporting and commercial ambitions of the team. He has huge technical experience as well and will be the right driver to ensure the succession of Marc Goossens.

“David Hart was without doubt the revelation of 2005, he surprised many insiders and outsiders, as he had a ‘clear round’ in Belcar. He proved to be a very valuable driver for the team.

“But I also want to thank Marc Goossens for his dedication,” continued the team owner, “he was very important over the last two years and he did his part in everything SRT achieved. I would like to wish him all the best for the future and maybe we will meet again on the track...”
