It is going to be a busy and exciting year for Team WRT! The Belgian squad has presented its 2016 program of activities this evening, during a crowded press conference at its headquarters in Baudour.
The 2016 projects and key news have been outlined during the event and are summarized as follows.

Once again, the Belgian squad will be present among the world’s elite of GT racing in the Blancpain GT Series, defending the four titles conquered in 2015 (the Teams’ and Drivers’ Blancpain overall crowns, and the Teams’ titles in both the Sprint and Endurance series). The team has been very successful also during the winter, taking 2nd at the FIA GT World Cup in Macau, posting a 1-2 win at the Sepang 12 Hours and winning the Dubai 24 Hours.
