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.
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.

With a top-class field of entrants, the European Le Mans Series has managed to become established as the strongest prototype class in European endurance racing. Races in the series are held at six famous circuits and the winners decided over four hours.
In his first season, Rene went hunting for points with Panis Barthez Compétition, the team managed by former French F1 driver, Olivier Panis. Finishing eighth, he made a successful debut in the famous 24-hour race at Le Mans and hopes to make the event his top priority again in 2020.
