VM Motorsport by Equipe Verschuur will contest the full 2008 Le Mans series as well as the famous 24 hour race.
Team principal Frans Verschuur says about the Porsche project: “It is a logical next step in the development of our team. In the past few years, the Le Mans Series with its 1000-kilometre races at famous race tracks has developed itself to a professional race category and is a very attractive playing field. Additionally, we plan to enter the Le Mans 24 Hours, which is of course a major challenge for any team.”
The near-500bhp LMP2 car will be built at Weissach this autumn while drivers for the team are yet to be decided.
