SPYKER SQUADRON 1000 KM OF SILVERSTONE PREVIEW

* Final race of the Le Mans Series season
* Spyker Squadron successful at Silverstone in recent years
* Peter Dumbreck and Tom Coronel driving the Spyker C8 Laviolette GT2

ZEEWOLDE, September 9, 2010 - The final round of the 2010 Le Mans Series season will take place this weekend at the Silverstone circuit in Northamptonshire, United Kingdom. Spyker Squadron will again enter its Spyker C8 Laviolette GT2R for Peter Dumbreck and Tom Coronel.


Spyker Squadron 1000KM of the Hungaroring

Spyker Squadron has good memories of the British Grand Prix circuit after taking a third place finish in 2007 and a second place in 2009. After finishes in all the Le Mans Series races this season as well as the 24 Hours of Le Mans the team hopes to end 2010 on a high.

Peter van Erp, Managing Director: “We are on the eve of the final race of the Le Mans Series season. In the past three years we took a top four finish here at Silverstone, including a double podium finish. It will be an interesting race weekend because the series will use the new circuit layout - the Arena Layout - and this race is the first of three races for the Intercontinental Le Mans cup, which means there will be a large number of cars again. Of course we hope to get a good result to end the season on a high."

Peter Dumbreck: “It is always good to race at home as I know the Silverstone circuit very well. The last 2 races were in heat over 30 degrees so the British round of LMS is guaranteed to be cooler and I think the layout of the circuit will suit the Spyker more than the twisty Portuguese and Hungarian tracks before.”
“Last year's result of second in Silverstone raises the Squadrons' expectations so we will be pushing hard for a good result. 2010 has shown to be a very strong year in GT2 so everyone has to be on top form to get back on to the podium. So far we have finished every race this year including the 24 hours so above all I would like to have a 100% reliability record and see the chequered flag at the end of race in Silverstone... hopefully high in the points!”

Two free practice sessions are scheduled Friday afternoon at 13:15 and 17:00. On Saturday the team will have another practice session at 9:00 while qualifying for the GT cars starts at 13:10. The race itself will start at 11:55 on Sunday and will run over 170 laps or six hours. Eurosport and Eurosport 2 will be broadcasting live from Silverstone for over four hours.
