JAN HEYLEN ANNOUNCES A VERY BUSY 2005

Even if little was known about the plans of Jan Heylen till now, the Belgian single-seater hope had a very busy winter. Busy is also an appropriate word for his 2005-racing program. Jan will be active in European Megane Trophy, Formula 3 and a GT championship.

"I'm proud to announce that I will compete the brand new European Megane Throphy for an all-Belgian team: Racing for Belgium. The team founded by manager-driver Wim Coeckelberghs gained lots of experience in the Belgian Clio Cup and I'm sure that the team will do a good job," opens Jan Heylen.

"The Megane Throphy is different from Formula Racing but still is a very good experience as it is a competition on a very high and competitive level. This Cup is technically very close to DTM and offers a good chance to continue on international level.

"My choice for the Megane Throphy does not mean the end of my single-seater career," underlines Jan Heylen.

"This winter, I was picked by Mygale and Team Holzer to be their test driver for 2005, to develop Mygale's new F3 car. The French F3-constructer, situated near Magny-Cours will compete in the 2005 F3 Euro-Series. They collaborate with Holzer, a German company in charge of the DTM-Opel Vectra," explains Jan. He will also be seen in GT-racing. "GT-racing is no longer a gentleman-drivers monopoly. Young, fast drivers are keen to compete long distance racing. Myself, I had my first experience last year during the Zolder 10 hours. Shortly, we will announce more about our GT-plans. But without doubt, there will be an endurance classic on my program," concludes Jan Heylen.
