13/10/2011: FISCHER RACING: GT3-season ends with a highlight in Holland
The 2011 season of the FIA GT3 European Championship ends in the Netherlands this weekend. For the first time, the championship will start at Zandvoort in the Netherlands. Fischer Racing hope to close the season on a high with the two Ford GT at the series first ever visit to the Dutch track, located directly at the north sea coast north of Amsterdam. For the final two races of the 2011 season, a driver new to Fischer Racing will share the Ford GT with experienced Finn Markus Palttala. Jesse Krohn from Finland will make his first step into GT-racing along his fellow countryman Palttala at Zandvoort, while the second Fischer Racing-Ford GT will be driven by regular drivers Mikko Eskelinen (FIN) and Christoffer Nygaard (DNK).
For ProSpeed Competition the final meeting of the European FIA GT3 Championship, being held on 15th and 16th October at the Zandvoort circuit, retains a rather special flavour. In fact Zandvoort is the stronghold of one of the Belgian team’s pillars, namely Paul Van Splunteren.
