The 2015 season of Curbstone Track Events has come to an end. After nine track days at Spa Francorchamps, two days in the Czech Republic and a weekend in France on the track of Paul Ricard, the Curbstone finale was held on the track of Zolder known as Belgium’s second F1 track but also home for the Blancpain Sprint Series and the 24 Hours of Zolder.
The fact that the rain didn’t stop for the full day could not spoil the fun. The grid, a little less crowded than usual, was again divided in two categories, GTsport and GTrace. We believe that this division is even more import on a track like Zolder, because it’s smaller than Francorchamps and the corners are totally different. Of course, the main idea is to give participants the maximum enjoyment when racing their cars.
Among the GTsport cars we saw again that Porsche stays a favorite track day toy for many car enthusiasts. With a 997 GT3 RS, 997 GT2, 991 GT3 and a 991 GT3 RS the German brand was again well represented. Other cars were a Ferrari 430, a 430 Scuderia, a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate, an Audi R8 and the BMW M3 and 235i from team Van Der Horst Racing.
When looking at the real race cars we got a complete different idea. There was not one, and that is truly exceptional for Curbstone Track Events, Porsche GT3 Cup. From Ferrari we saw a 430 GT3, several 458 Italia Challenges and a 458 Italia GT3. Eye catching and maybe getting most attention were the Audis from WRT, a team that not brought one but three R8 LMS Ultras to Zolder.
We from GTspirit want to that Curbstone Track Events for this year and are looking forward to next year. Once the 2016 calendar is known, we will make it public!
