Le Hollandais Yelmer Buurman sous les couleurs du RSC Anderlecht !

26.06.2009: Cocktail pour le moins détonnant, réunissant les univers prestigieux du football mondial et du sport automobile international, la Superleague Formula s’apprête à vivre une deuxième saison qui s’annonce

Cocktail pour le moins détonnant, réunissant les univers prestigieux du football mondial et du sport automobile international, la Superleague Formula s’apprête à vivre une deuxième saison qui s’annonce passionnante, avec un coup d’envoi donné ce week-end sur le circuit français de Magny-Cours, dans la Nièvre.

Au total, ce ne sont pas moins de 18 monoplaces, propulsées par des mécaniques de 750 chevaux, qui vont se disputer la couronne, le calendrier comprenant pas moins de 6 rendez-vous, chacun riche de… 3 courses !

Pour le public belge, il s’agira avant tout de ne pas manquer Zolder Superleague, les 18 et 19 juillet prochains. Un rendez-vous au cours duquel la monoplace portant les célèbres couleurs du RSC Anderlecht sera bien sûr sous les feux de la rampe ! Un bolide qui sera finalement aligné par l’équipe Zakspeed, nom pour le moins prestigieux en sport automobile, tandis que le pilote sera le Hollandais Yelmer Buurman, qui défendait les couleurs du PSV Eindhoven l’an dernier…

« Je suis naturellement emballé à l’idée de porter ces célèbres couleurs », commente Yelmer Buurman. « La possibilité de travailler avec l’équipe Zakspeed constitue aussi une formidable opportunité. Le championnat débute à Magny-Cours, circuit que je connais très bien, pour y avoir évolué en F3 et en GP2 Series. Je n’y ai jamais remporté de victoire, une lacune que je tâcherai de combler dès ce week-end. Ensuite, la Superleague Formula passera par la Belgique et Zolder, et inutile de préciser qu’avec le mauve et le blanc sur la carrosserie de mon bolide, il s’agira pour moi d’un des points forts de la saison… »

Yelmer Buurman rejoint donc in extremis un peloton riche de plusieurs autres grands noms du sport automobile international, dont Giorgio Pantano (AC Milan), Enrique Bernoldi (Flamengo), Tristan Gommendy (FC Porto), Davide Rigon (champion en titre, Olympiacos), Antonio Pizzonia (Corinthians), Miguel Molina (Al Ain), et Adrian Valles (Liverpool), pour ne citer que ces champions au palmarès chargé.

Rappelons que le RSC Anderlecht avait achevé la première campagne de la Superleague Formula au 6ème rang, la monoplace étant alors pilotée par le Britannique Craig Dolby, qui défendra cette année les couleurs de Tottenham Hotspur.
