ALD Automotive & Boutsen Ginion for 24h Spa-Francorchamps

Since ALD Automotive is supporting motorsport and 24h Spa-Francorchamps, it became a tradition to organise the press conferences at Chateaux de La Hulpe, near Brussels.

Nico Verdonck and his regular Blancpain Endurance Series teammates, Edouard Mondron & Jack Clarke, will be supported by multiple winner and recordholder of 24h Spa-Francorhamps, Eric Van de Poele with 5 victories.

Boutsen Ginion worked very hard to get everything ready and be competitive for this challenging 24h of Spa 2012 edition. With more then 65 cars, it's going to be an intense battle, with professional worksdrivers, the best GT teams in the world and a fantastic circuit.

We have a competitive car, that should suit Spa well -depending how the balans will effect the latest BoP (Balance Of Performance) changes- in dry & and wet conditions. My teammates are definitely in good shape and with the experience and know-how of Eric, combined with a motivated, determined Boutsen Ginion team we must be able to get a good result.

Together with my partners ALD Automotive, CPL Trans and Wilco-Products I'm looking forward to be part of this fantastic event and enjoy every moment, as I know our entire team and my fans will be all behind our McLaren 5# to push us forward and get the maximium result on Sunday 4pm!

See you all in Spa!
