ReneCareer, History, Objectives, Family, Passion

Born in the Olympic City of Innsbruck, Austria, Rene Binder was the last race winner of the former Renault World Series, one of the most successful F1 feeder series’. After a partial season program in the Verizon IndyCar Series the 27 year old is now aiming for glory in the highest leagues of Endurance Racing.







His grandfather was an Austrian rally champion, his uncle a Formula 1 driver in the thrilling 1970s and his father no less a figure than champion in the German Formula 3 Trophy. Indeed you could say that a passion for racing runs in Rene’s blood.

But there is a second passion the Binder family shares: It’s the passion for timber wood. What began fifty years ago, initially in the timber trade, has meanwhile grown to a leading European company for solid wood products and innovative building solutions.

TeamTeam Spirit, Objectives, Community

Over the last 10 years the Inter Europol Competition team has run different cars in different championships. In 2020 the team will again participate in the European Le Mans Series; this year with two LMP2 and two LMP3. In the Ultimate Cup Series, we will run one LMP3 and one (or two) FR2.0.

In 2010 Inter Europol became the main sponsor. Inter Europol is a Polish bakery situated near Warsaw (Poland) which delivers bread and bread related products to over 30 countries worldwide. Their customers are airlines, hotels, fuel stations, etc. The chance that you ate their bread at one time or another is very likely.

The colours green and yellow on the car are those of Inter Europol and are inspired by lush green fields and the sun.

European Le Mans Series

Same spirit, more races…

Team spirit together with long distance performance, as embodied by the 24 Heures du Mans , is the credo of the European Le Mans Series. The duty of the ELMS is to offer its competitors a full season to race their cars on some of the best tracks in Europe, while keeping tight control of the costs associated with running in a top European wide series. Also the champions will be offered a place on the grid of the 24 Heures du Mans, which gives an extra, important dimension to the title race across the three categories.

…Sportsmanship remains a must

The Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) guarantees a series that has strict rules and a paddock that embodies the professionalism that surrounds top level endurance racing. However the ELMS paddock is a friendly environment for the teams, drivers, the media and, of course, the fans. The European Le Mans Series gives everybody the opportunity to take advantage of motor racing in a different way. The choice between Prototype and GT cars give the competitors the opportunity to compete in a first-class series according to their budgets and the level of competitiveness means there is plenty of track action throughout the large grid of 40+ cars.

A step into a Global Competition

The European Le Mans Series is a natural training ground for drivers wanting to tackle the FIA World Endurance Championship. Drivers competing in LMP2 and LMGTE are racing the same machinery that competes on the world stage and perhaps the next world champion will be found on the grid of the ELMS.
