Dstny proud sponsor of Belgian racing team – Team Longin
The auto racing world shows many similarities with that of cycling and scale-ups. Teamwork and commitment to performance are at the centre, passion and ambition are the drivers. Dstny is therefore very proud to announce that, starting this season, we are sponsoring the racing team Team Longin of the Belgian entrepreneur Bert Longin. Bert has a particularly punishing record of success both at home and abroad and can call himself the only driver with seven overall Belcar titles in his pocket. His son, Stienes Longin (31 years old), defended his European title last weekend in Monza at the first round of the Fanatec GT2 European Series 2023, with Peter Guelinckx at his side. But that’s not the only challenge the duo of the #1 PK Carsport Audi R8 LMS GT2 are facing this year. Together with Bert Longin, they also want to extend their Belcar title in 2023. And as if that were not enough, at PK Carsport they are also taking a shot at the touring car title in Belcar. There, Junior Planckaert and Matisse Lismont will share a BMW M2 CS.
“Team Longin plays along at the European level and is a great example of strong teamwork, where young people also get the chance to prove themselves. I am therefore very proud that we are supporting this top team starting this season,” says Daan De Wever, CEO Dstny Group.
“Time and again they throw themselves into the battle, full of passion and ambition, leaving nothing to chance. Performance is key in the car racing world, as it is in cycling and in the business world in which we operate with Dstny. There is no room for improvisation if you want to advance to the next level. And the competition is tough. We may still be able to inspire each other in this area.”
The Belcar Series is mainly run on the Belgian Spa-Francorchamps and Zolder circuits. The full schedule and calendar, including the European GT2 Championship, can be found here.
