Marc VDS Racing Team at the start of the Le Mans 24 Hours!

Thursday February 4th 2010 was an important day for the Marc VDS Racing Team: it was on that day that the organisation of the event decided to include their Ford GT1 on the entry list for the 78th edition of the Le Mans 24 Hours, on June 12-13. Being part of the 55-car strong field represent a great opportunity for the young Belgian team.

"It's simply magnificent that we can be part of this hugely popular and well-known event", stated Marc van der Straten when he was told the good news on Thursday noon. "I am also happy to note that there are only eight GT1's selected, a clear proof that it was not easy to be included on the entry list. Obviously, for a young team like ours, which was created only a year ago, this selection represents an immense recognition of our efforts and professionalism with which we compete in the GT1-category. It is now up to us to thank the Automobile Club de l'Ouest (ACO) in a fitting way for their confidence in us. It's one more challenge for our formation, which already has plenty with their programmes in GT, Moto 2 and rally raid championships!"
