Belgian team NSC Motorsports has joined the entry list of the Belgian round of the 2014 Blancpain Sprint Series, bringing the total number of cars for the Zolder event to 24, the largest starting grid of the year. Considering the level of the drivers, the newcomers are certainly counting on making an impression.
The NSC Motorsports Lamborghini will be driven by Dutch pairing Nicky Catsburg and Peter Kox. Kox won the FIA GT Sprint Series race at Zolder last year, driving a Lamborghini as well, and is certainly hoping for a repeat performance. Catsburg is not unknown to the Blancpain GT Series, taking two Pro-Am Cup wins in the Endurance Series this year, at the wheel of the TDS Racing BMW.
Nicky Catsburg: “I’m very happy that team owner Thierry Verstraete, NSC Motorsport and Reiter Engineering have given me this opportunity to drive in the Blancpain Sprint Series. To do so with Peter Kox, who knows the car very well, is certainly an added bonus.”
