Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup stays fresh and exciting because here new teams with young driving talent make the leap from national one-make Cups to the international class. Hailing from Holland, Team GP Elite is one of them.
Torsten van Haasteren, the team manager, makes no secret of the team’s roots. The 911 GT3 Cups from GP Elite glow in a magnificent orange hue and the drivers’ names are a sheer giveaway to their origin: ten Voorde, van Splunteren and van Kuijk. To take the Dutch cliché even further, it’s not uncommon to see pictures of the team’s racing cars staged in front of a quaint windmill.
