Miel Horsten CEO ALD Automotive: "We are going through very exciting times at ALD Automotive" says ALD Automotive CEO Miel Horsten. "Last year we became the market leader in Belgium and we celebrated our 1 Million Vehicle event worldwide just a few weeks ago. Joining forces with Nico and HTP Motorsport illustrates our ambition for the future and our willingness to continue to outperform."

Nico Verdonck: "I am delighted to be working again with my long-time and loyal partner ALD Automotive, with whom I have enjoyed great success and of course to be driving a Mercedes SLS for HTP Motorsport one of the best and most successful GT cars and endurance teams of the last three years.
