Graham Nash Motorsport has confirmed its driver line up for the team's Porsche GT3RS entry in the N-GT class of the Spa 24 hours.

Belgian Stand 21 Importer Steve Van Bellingen, and Armand Fumal of Belgium will join the French pairing Michel Orts and Edi Guy for the endurance event this weekend at the famous Belgian circuit.

Three of the four drivers are Spa veterans. Belgian BMW Touring Car team owner Van Bellingen starts his fourth Spa-Francorchamps 24 hours, while Orts and Guy start their second together having finished sixth in class last year in a Supercup Spec Porsche.

Although Fumal hasn't actually raced in the Spa 24hours, he does have experience of the circuit and also has knowledge of the team, having raced for GNM in the past.

"I am very happy to be back with Graham's team" he said. "To drive with Steve is also good, as he is a friend of mine. I think we will have a good chance of success this year".

Frenchman Guy believes that the foursome have a good chance to impress in thies weekends race.

"I am looking forward to this race with Michel and the Belgian drivers," he said. "I think if we are sensible and have a good strategy we will do well. Graham's Porsche has done very few races and I have heard that it is a good car so I think we will have a good opportunity. I am looking forward to it".

With the team still working to finalise a driver line-up for its Saleen, team owner Graham Nash declared himself pleased with the drivers he has assembled so far.

"We worked hard to secure a good team for the Porsche," he said. "It is as important to us as the Saleen entry. We want to do very well in the class and who knows maybe a class win would be on the cards. The car has not raced since Daytona this year and is fresh and ready to go. All the drivers will be evenly matched, which will be good for the car in terms of continuity.

"We are still pushing to finalise the Saleen entry and will be working on that."
