A meeting marked by the tragedy of Dilano Van't Hoff's passing

The weekend of the 24 Hours of Spa was a mix of intense emotions and memorable moments. Unfortunately, tragedy struck during this legendary competition with the tragic death of Dilano Van't Hoff, a talented and promising driver, in the second race of a Formula 3 championship round. This event cast a shadow over the entire weekend, and our thoughts go out to his family, loved ones, and all those who have been affected by this immense loss.

Competitive crew ready to take on the challenge

Our crew, consisting of experienced and competitive drivers, was ready to take on the challenge of the 24 Hours of Spa. We dedicated numerous hours to preparation and training, with the aim of delivering an outstanding performance on the track. Together, we were determined to give it our all.

"During these 24 Hours of Spa, our crew composed of Hugo Chevalier, Fred Makowiecki, Steven Palette, and myself experienced a race of incredible intensity. We secured an incredible position in the superpole, which was the starting point of an exceptional performance. By the end of the race, we managed to break into the top 20, finishing in fourth place, just 13 seconds away from the podium. The Porsche we were piloting and the team strategy implemented by Maxence RONNÉ, managed by Côme LEDOGAR, were simply remarkable. Now, we have an appointment at the Nürburgring for the penultimate round!"
