The Belgian team aims to capitalise on its one season of experience in the top flight as they unveil an incredibly talented line-up.

With the 2017 Simracing season gathering speed, Wauters Automotive is pleased to announce their Superleague line-up for the 2017 season.

Since the grid is becoming more competitive every year due to the increased popularity of Simracing as a genre in E-sport (Visa Vegas E-prix, exhibit A), the Belgian outfit is looking to strengthen their position in various different ways.

Team Manager Andreas Wauters outlines the Road map for 2017:
"2016 was a solid start for us in Superleague, and I think all our involved team members can be proud of what we achieved, but there definitely were some things that we can improve on. We hope to achieve these improvements operating from our new headquarters near the circuit of Zolder.

"A more optimized development strategy based on lessons learned from last year is one of the key working points for us this year, but we also want to transform our organisation to be more dynamic and professional by welcoming new members to our management and support team. I believe teams excel when everybody has a clear goal that is aligned with their expertise, and is allowed to take ownership and responsibility of this facet of proceedings. This of course remains an ongoing process.

"However, we have already been able to lock in the most important part of this, which is our 2017 SL drivers line-up. The drivers that we have attracted are extremely professional and all have experience in real life racing, be it in karting, national tintop racing or straight up GT madness. The extensive portfolio of these drivers is a testament to their skill and persistence."

In the #30 car: Gergo Baldi, 2016 Hankook Racer Series Champion and practically born in a simracing seat.
"I'm glad that I got the chance to take part in Wauters Automotive's 2017 campaign. The 2016 season was a build-up for this year's challenge, so I was really happy when Andreas asked me about my plans for '17. I am as serious and motivated as ever, so I believe we can achieve something nice. The team is ready, I am ready, so let's see what we can do together."

In the #33 car: Daniel Cziranku, Semi professional karter and extremely proficient in setting up the car.
"It's always a pleasure to work with real professionals in a team, and Wauters Automotive has some of the very best of their mastery. I am very grateful for the fighting chances provided by Andreas, especially alongside Gergo Baldi in Superleague. We know, race and help each other since forever, so the atmosphere is even more friendly. All set for a great season!"

In the Test & reserve driver seat: Dennis Lind, 2016 Lamborghini Super Trofeo European and World Champion.
"Joining Wauters is going to be a nice challenge this year, a nice push in the masters series in the start of the season, and hopefully a strong Superleague campaign to finish it off, I have high hopes for this one, so a big thanks to Andreas for bringing me on board."

Wauters Automotive for sure is ready for a strong season! Are you?
