Today i saw an article on the internet (racexpress.nl) on the Spyker Valencia test. The team tested for one and a half day with...
...Peter Kox. Peter Kox states in the article that he offered to test for the team himself. The circomstances on the Circuito de la Comunidad Valenciana Ricardo Tormo were pretty good and the team made some good progress. Peter tested different set-ups ass well as a new wheel geometry and some new aerodynamics. I saw pictures of the testcar (chassis 046) and there is a roof air-intake to be seen on it! (not sure if i'm allowed to post pictures, so i won't but be sure to check the above mentioned website and see for your self!). Peter Kox states that Spyker made a lot of progress since he last drove the car (Dubai 2006, at the end of the season). He is very positive that the team is fully committed to make it better every time!

Good news i guess, can't wait till Sebring!
Curious who the drivers will be though!!

Nope, nothing confirmed yet!

But given the fact that Peter Kox tested in Valencia for them could be an indication that he might drive for them in 2007. He will definitely drive the All-Inkl.com Lamborghini in FIA-GT. But can still do Sebring, Le Mans and all the LMS races except for Valencia (clash with FIA-GT) for Spyker.

Mike Hezemans also does FIA GT (for GLPK) and could again drive for Spyker in 2007 (except for Valencia).

Jarek Janis confirmed but he also does FIA-GT, and thus will miss Valencia.

Don't know what plans Johhny Kane and Peter Dumbreck have for 2007?

Checked the entry list for Sebring and there is only one Spyker Spyder GT2-R on it! Drivers to be announced.
My guess: Peter Kox, Jeroen Bleekemolen and Jarek Janis

We'll see!

The conflict in schedule between Silverstone and Valencia does not exclude drivers from either race! This was discussed in the FIA Rumors & Speculation thread starting at about post #127

Janis will only race at four FIA-GT events, so there would be no problem for him with Spyker.

I read an interview with Spyker´s current interim CEO Hans Hugenholtz,himself a Le Mansveteran,in which he is adament about Spyker returning to the big race in 2008.
It would be a shame to see the GT2´s dissapear ´cause of a very dumb F1 effort.

Thanks Victor Muller....

I heard they might do ALMS in 2008 if they can find the right sponsoring. They also try to find customerteams for this series, just like Speedy in the European Le Mans Series. They proved they can provide a customerteam with an as good and as fast car as their own worksteam car.

I heard nothing about European Le Mans Series or Le Mans.

If the worksteam quit than i guess Speedy has to quit as well, because there will be no further development on the cars i'm afraid!

I hope they will find a good partner in ALMS or maybe FIA-GT and that Speedy will return in LMES for 2008.

I think that if they apply for Le Mans they deserve a place for 2008, but that's just a personal thought!

Spyker GT2

Participation in professional motor sport events remains important for the Spyker brand, because of the direct impact it has on its road cars being accepted as high performance sports cars. Therefore the factory GT2 race activities continue, under the condition that the GT2 team will show a cash neutral result. To realize this Spyker is now in the process of actively approaching potential sponsor partners interested in its renewed sponsor proposition. For 2008 Spyker GT2 is investigating a possible full entry into the American LMS (“ALMS”) championship provided adequate sponsoring is secured. Moreover Spyker Cars N.V. is discussing interest shown by a number of teams currently participating in the ALMS to race with Spyker GT2 cars for the coming season.

Spyker participated with its GT2R in the endurance races 1000 km of Nürburgring (Germany LMS) on 1 July, 1000 km of Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium LMS) on 19 August and the 1000 km of Silverstone (United Kingdom LMS) on 16 September. In Silverstone the Spyker GT2 team was rewarded for its efforts throughout the entire racing season, achieving 3rd (Spyker factory team) and 4th (privateer Speedy Racing Team) places.
