Frikadelli Racing does not start the 24h race in Spa-Francorchamps
The Frikadelli Racing Team has decided not to participate in this year's 24-hour race in Spa-Francorchamps (July 31st-August 1st, 21st). The reason for this is the current events in connection with the flood disaster and its effects.
"As team members of ours in the family or circle of friends have also been affected by the flood disaster, I have decided to cancel our planned race entry at Spa-Francorchamps." Despite all our love for motorsport, coming to terms with what happened and providing help in such an exceptional situation has absolute priority. I am very pleased that Porsche also shares this view and stands behind our decision”, explains team principal Klaus Abbelen.
The Frikadelli Racing Team originally named two Porsche 911 GT3 Rs for the start of the Intercontinental GT Challenge. On the # 3 Porsche 911 GT3 R, Dennis Olsen, Frédéric Makowiecki and Patrick Pilet were to take turns at the endurance classic in the Belgian Ardennes. Thomas Preining, Michael Christensen and Julien Andlauer were planned as pilots on the # 13 Porsche 911 GT3 R.
