Doubling up – ADAC Procar and Endurance racing with Besaplast Racing in 2015

MINI Challenge 2011

Fredrik Lestrup returns to the European racing scene in 2015 with a busy racing schedule that includes both the full ADAC Procar Championship in Germany as well ad Endurance racing with Besaplast Racing.

He will return to the MINI cockpit as the team will build a brand new MINI GP2 for the Division 1 category in the ADAC Procar Championship. Six of eight race weekends around Europe has been announced with two more yet to be confirmed. The championship will share weekends with ADAC GT Masters, Blancpain Endurance series and FIA ETCC.

Fredrik Lestrup will drive a brand new MINI GP2 prepared and built by Dombek Motorsport in the highest category, and he looks forward to return to the European racing scene.
“After this season I was looking at other opportunities outside racing but when David Dombek and Besaplast approached me with this suggestion I was immediately attracted by the idea”, Fredrik says. “They were prepared to build me a new car and had familiar partners prepared to support the project. I feel humbled by the support they have shown to get me in the car and was very attracted by the idea. The team showed this year they can be competitive with the MINI:s against the S2000 cars in Division 1, and I think we can go for race wins and a top position in the championship. It was an easy decision to make.”

Fredrik will also continue with Besaplast Racing in various Endurance races throughout the year, starting with the Dubai 24-hours in January. 12-hour races at Mugello and Zandvoort as well as the 24-hour races at Nürburgring and Barcelona are also planned. Fredrik will drive both the teams Audi TT-RS and the MINI John Cooper Works Endurance in the endurance races for Besaplast Racing.
“Besaplast and Dombek Motorsport work closely together so it was an easy fit to add the Endurance races for Besaplast to the schedule and I’m honoured to once again be called up by Besaplast to do these 12 and 24-hour races,” Fredrik says. “It will be a busy year with over 13 race weekends so I’m happy to have such a big programme planned this early.”

In addition to his own racing Fredrik Lestrup also plans to enter his own MINI in various Endurance races in Sweden and Europe during the year.
