Passion for mechanics and coachwork
Both at home and abroad ProSpeed is especially known as the successful race team run by Rudi Penders and Luc Goris. Apart from these race activities, the company specialises in a total service for classic cars and oldtimers of all makes.
Porsche in the bedroom
For many years a photo – neatly framed – of a Porsche 911 Turbo hung on the young Rudi Penders’ bedroom wall. As from a very young age he was enthralled by these fast cars and their typical coachwork.
On the other hand his partner, Luc Goris’ great passion was and to this day remains the exclusive American Muscle Cars. No wonder therefore that fine-tuning and racing are in Luc’s genes.
First official Porsche dealer in Belgium
In 1996 Rudi Penders took over the official concession in Liège. He gradually developed his Porsche centre into one of the biggest dealerships in Belgium.
Already back in 1997, bitten by the motorsport bug, participated in the Belcar, the official Belgian championship for GT and Touring Cars. The collaboration with Luc Goris came about as from 1998.
This form of make-activity ensured that the Porsche Centre Liège turned into the country’s most sporting dealership.
Own race team: ProSpeed Competition
Beginning of 2005 Luc Goris and Rudi Penders set-up their own team: ProSpeed Competition. In addition to their many years participating in the Belcar, ProSpeed also officiates as official works team for Porsche AG. In a second phase the specialised services were also offered to other race teams and drivers.
Over the years this Belgian team, with home base in Tongeren has claimed a string of prestigious victories in the 24 Hours of Zolder, the FIA GT Championship and the European FIA GT3 Championship. The team has on numerous occasions also competed in the world-renowned 24 Hours of Le Mans.
In addition to well-equipped workshops of more than 1500 m², the team also boasts its own departments in the fields of logistics, communication, PR and sponsoring.
For many years this Belgian team has worked closely with such world-renowned top drivers as Marc Goossens, Maxime Soulet, Manu Collard, Richard Westbrook, Jan Heylen, Marc Lieb, Nick Tandy and Marco Holzer.
As a technical partner of the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Benelux, ProSpeed Competition is still a major player in the motorsport world. ProSpeed Competition’s know-how and expertise is fully incorporated in ProSpeed Engineering.
