Thanks to more than 25 years’ experience and passion at the service of historic and modern racing, V de V Sports has become one of the best known-organisers recognised by the major competitors and teams in the motor racing milieu.
Creation of V de V Team
Eric Van de Vyver is a lover of motor racing especially when at the wheel of historic racing cars, a field in which he was one of the pioneers when he created his own team, V de V, in 1985 – in the colours of a famous Tonic drink – which he entered for most of the major events in this discipline.
Organization of the first, and so far only, VHC 24-hour endurance race : the 2 Tours d'Horloge
After winning two titles in France in historic championships and fed up with spending more time on the road than on the track in 1992 he decided to organise the first, and so far only, VHC 24-hour endurance race, the 2 Tours d’Horloge, on the famous Paul Ricard circuit. The event met with immediate success and it encouraged him to progressively multiply the number of VHC endurance races both in France and abroad: 12 Hours of Magny-Cours, 12 Hours of Jarama, 6 Hours of Dijon, 6 Hours of Val de Vienne, Lédenon, Charade, Nogaro, Lausitz and Estoril.
Addition of races for modern machinery
V de V, which soon gained recognition for its competences as an organiser and for the quality of its meetings, wrote a new page in its history from 2000 onwards by adding races for modern machinery, which included sprints for GTs and Prototypes as well as the Funyo Challenge, and single-seaters with Formula Renault 2.0, to endurance events like the Challenge European Endurance GT/Tourisme/LMP/PFV Challenge and Prototypes.
Focus on historic competitions
Henceforth, Eric Van de Vyver’s organisation, in which his daughter Laure is taking wider responsibilities, is going to devote itself to historic competitions while respecting the core values that have always driven the V de V Sports team: namely, competence, expertise, passion, fairness and conviviality.
