Circuit Zolder, June 24, 2024. The second round of the Porsche Endurance Trophy Benelux took place at Circuit Zolder, just like the opening race of the season, and as always, together with the Belcar Endurance Championship. The Belgian round of the European Truck Championship was the setting for the second race of the year and among the giants of the road, it was Porsche that won the race in the Belcar Endurance Championship. After Q1 Trackracing's victory in mid-May, it was now up to Belgium Racing to finish in first place. It is the sixth consecutive victory of a Porsche 911 GT3 Cup - Type 992 - in the Belgian endurance championship since the race in Spa in June last year.

Just like during the opener of the season, the battle for the win lasted for 125 minutes and this time the victory went to the Belgium Racing Team duo Jan Lauryssen and Dylan Derdaele after a great race.

A great victory,” Jan Lauryssen beamed on the podium at Circuit Zolder, “just a few days after my victory in the Porsche Sprint Challenge Benelux, I have won again. Talk about a beautiful week! Naturally, we are also doing well in both championships, taking the lead in both cases. That gives confidence for the rest of the season, especially with the 24 Hours of Zolder coming up.”

Behind the winners, another strong performance followed from Q1 Trackracing, which took second place with Glenn Paenen and Jan Ooms, while their teammates Nicolas Van Dierendonck and Filip Teunkens finished third. The latter are now second in the championship.

Obviously we prefer to win, but collectively we drove a strong race and Filip remains in the running for the championship,” said driver and team manager at Q1 Trackracing, Nicolas Vandierendonck.

There was also a great performance from the Speedlover Porsche 911 GT3 Cup – Type 992 - of Rik Renmans and Wim Meulders, which crossed the line in fourth place, while the RedAnt Racing Porsche of Nico Verdonck and Dirk Van Rompuy completed the top 5. Besides, YDM-Racing and MM Racing finished sixth and seventh in the standings and all Porsche 911 GT3 Cup – Type 992 – managed to cross the line perfectly.

There was also a double for Porsche in the GTB class, with two victories for Arthur Peters and Kenny Herremans. They finished ninth overall with their Tip Top by NGT Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport. The Saber Management Racing Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport of Vanmol-Hody finished second in GTB on its debut in the competition.

The next Round of the Porsche Endurance Trophy Benelux will take place at Cicuit de Spa-Francorchamps on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th July!
