The Belcar Endurance Championship is entering the second half of the 2022 season and with it the most important race of the year: the 24 Hours of Zolder. Together with Belgium Racing who have won the Limburg classic four times already and who are looking for a fifth triumph with two cars of the latest generation.

With two victories, five podiums and a final third place in the Toyota GR Supra GT4 entered by Ring Racing supported by Toyota Gazoo Racing Germany, Nico Verdonck has made his mark in the DTM Trophy. In addition to his activities with the NV Academy, the Belgian demonstrated his level of performance in a championship which is the antechamber to the famous DTM.

In a few days, Nico Verdonck will start his 2021 season in the United Arab Emirates as part of the traditional 24 Hours of Dubai. Despite the current health crisis, the Brussels resident's program is already taking good shape for this new year.

At the end of this week Nico Verdonck will be back on track competing in the 24 Hours of Portimao. ”I can’t wait to be racing again”, Nico admitted. “During the confinement I kept myself pretty busy looking after my physical condition, taking care of my family and preparing the launch of NV Academy.”

Thank you for making 2019 colourful on and off track ! I wish you and your loved ones a happy, healthy and prosperous 2020 ! See you on track with NV Academy! Sportive regards, Nico

The fifth race of the Belcar season 2019 was promising to be the hardest: the 24H of Zolder. We were challenged to keep our car going for 24 hours, while trying to achieve a place in the class top three. Easier said than done, even considering the past races turned out pretty well.

Nico Verdonck, together with Marc Basseng, Manuel Lauck and Moritz Oestreich in a Hyundai Veloster N TCR, gained a 2nd place in the TCR category of the 24 Hours of the Nürburgring. Although the foursome only just missed the victory, the Belgian looks back at the team’s performance with a positive feeling.

The different races follow each other in high speed! The Belgians Nico Verdonck and Rodrigue Gillion, for Brno12h together in a team with Indian racer Akhil Rabindra, made it to the podium for the fourth time in a row in the GT4 category of the 24h Series.

Over the years he has become one of the references on the renowned Nordschleife of the Nürburgring. His performances on the legendary Eifel circuit did not go unnoticed and as he is about to tackle the track in VLN2 as an official works driver.

Professional driver for more than 15 years, Nico Verdonck has in parallel with his sporting career activities taken on that of being a coach. “I can assure you that this is not as yet a total reconversion ahead of time”, the 33-year-old Belgian jokingly commented.
