With three European endurance races in just six weeks, in a season full of national bank holidays , the last weeks have been time wise challenging for the team. Time was not only spent on the preparations for the Le Mans Series events but also on the ongoing development of the new cars and the essential but time consuming preparations for the upcoming 76th run of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Peter van Erp, managing director Spyker Squadron: "It is a bit sad that a high-profile race such as the 1000 km of Spa-Francorchamps will be seen by many teams as a mandatory event. With only two weeks till the official Le Mans test day, the goal for many will be to simply return the car unharmed to the finish line. We have started the season with encouraging results and I hope that we can continue that line this weekend".

Swiss driver Iradj Alexander has been selected by Alexandre Pesci to reinforce the Speedy Racing Team entry at Le Mans and therefore he will join the team in Belgium. Last year in Valencia Iradj already tested the old car but the race at Spa is a good opportunity for him to get acquainted with the team and the new car.

The 1000 km or six hour race will start this Sunday at 12:50 and will be broadcast live by Eurosport and MotorsTV.
