MarcVDS has recently announced their participation at the 2010 Spa 24 Hour event. However, instead of sporting the usual Mustang GT3 seen during the 2010 FIA-GT3 series events thus far, the Belgian team will enter two GT3-spec Ford GT’s.
After hearing of the team’s misfortune, fellow FordGT team owner and constructor, Martin Bartek has provided the team with two GT3-spec Ford GT’s for use in the 24 hour event.
The switch (return?) to the FordGT chassis is a response to the homologation difficulties facing the squads’ Mustang GT3 chassis. Which the team has chosen to resolve privately in a bid to remain in the FIA’s good graces.
While the absence of the Mustangs will come as a disappointment to many, the team has vowed the change is a minor set back, and the chassis will return to race in the FIA-GT3 championship at a later date.
