Penders Out, Basseng In
ProSpeed driver Rudi Penders will not race in this weekend’s Belcar even at Zolder. He went off heavily during the penultimate round of the Belcar series at Spa two weeks ago and his injuries keep him from racing this weekend.

ProSpeed is actually second in class 2, 12 points behind the class leader, the GS Motorsport pair Georg Severich and Mario Josten with the BMW M3 GTR V8.

Serge Vanbockrijck, PR-man of ProSpeed explains: “Rudi wants to be at full force and he’s not, so he decided not to race at Zolder. The team can still claim the title in Belcar class 2, so Rudi made the decision not to race.”

The team also announced that Marc Basseng replaces Rudi Penders this weekend. The Porsche test driver and VLN racer is a strong replacement. Basseng won the last round of the VLN with Patrick Simon, in the Land Porsche.
