Philip VERELLEN (1963 – 2002).
Time flies. More than ten years ago, we’ve lost a popular racing driver and professional motoring journalist. In 1986 a young talented driver, born in Antwerp, wins the Belga Steering Wheel. BMW offers a full season at the wheel of a 325i Group N, allowing Philip to win the national title in his class. During the next three years he’s one of the stars with a Ford Sierra Cosworth, prepared by the Belgian Innara Team. Unfortunately there is no budget for singleseaters, in spite of a promising result at the wheel of a Ralt RT31 in Zolder. He joins in 1990 the Belgian Audi Team and drives the powerful Audi V8. Three wins for his first season with the national Procar title in 1992. After another five victories in 1992, he decides to sign a contract with the Toyota Team and its Carina Fisa 2 Litre. Philip thanks his new employer with the national title is his class. Meanwhile he strives for an international career. The next three years he races in the UK in the British Rover Turbo Cup. In 1997 we’ll see him in the European Renault Spider Cup.
The 18th of May 2013, during the 13th edition of Porsche Francorchamps Days Vander Haeghen & Co, the first Porsche “Elegance contest”, took place in Belgium in honor of the 50th anniversary of the the 911.
A selection of fifty cars competed in four different categories:
- “RS”, the 2.7-liter to the 993
- “Turbo”, the 930 to the 993
- “Speedster-Cabrio-Targa over 20 years”
- “The most beautiful 911 through its 50 years of existence.”
This last category met some of the best models of the seven generations, and will be selected by the public. The owner of the winning car received a 911 BRM watch.
The winners of the other categories were selected by a jury of experts and specialists from Porsche and automotive. The cars were shown from 10am to 1pm and the catwalk show took place from 2 pm to 5 pm, followed by the awards ceremony.
